The Lion King: Then And Now


The 2019 Lion King trailer has dropped and it is quickly being compared to the original 1994 version.


In case you haven't heard, in 2019 Disney will release a NEW version of the 1994 classic animated film The Lion King.

The movie, once the highest-grossing animated film ever (now, 4th) is one of the most anticipated new films coming to screens in the new year.

In 1994, everyone ran to the theaters to see the original The Lion King, in fact, I remember even our office closed one day so we could all go the movies to view it.

To most of us, The Lion King is engrossed in our memories, so when Disney decided to redo the film a lot of people questioned that move.

Now there is a first look trailer, and a lot of fans are incredibly HAPPY to hear it’s narrated by James Earl Jones, who plays King Mufasa in both the 1994 original and next year’s film.

But arguably the most impressive thing about the teaser is how amazing the visuals look.

  1. They've done everything else live action. I'm not surprised they're doing this. I do love the original and the broadway show was amazing too. I'll keep an open mind.
