Disney drops ‘The Lion King’ trailer


(CNN) — Walt Disney Studios released the official trailer for “The Lion King” Wednesday.

The remake will hit theaters July 19. 

The trailer features many of the pivotal scenes that were part of the 1994 original, but now with Disney’s live-action inspired treatment. 

In the video we meet young Simba along with his father Mufasa and Simba’s evil uncle Scar. 

We even get a quick close-up shot of a singing Pumba and Timon. 

The film stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce as Nala and has James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa.
