The short one and half minute teaser revolves around Rafiki presenting a young Simba to the members of the Pride Lands; not to miss the iconic shot of Simba being hoisted above the rock. While the teaser has some very brief moments that will pique your interest in the film, it's the narration by James Earl Jones as Mufasa that further makes it intriguing.

For the ones who don't know, Lion King is about Simba who is destined to be the new ruler of the Pride Lands. However, his uncle has some evil plans planned for him. The original classic won two Academy Awards and its remake shows the same potential. Jon Favreau, who earlier directed The Jungle Book, the film which was lauded for it brilliant live-action animation seems to be the ideal choice for the remake of a classic as the Lion King. This is one movie where we can't say 'we hope' but in fact, 'we are damn sure' that it will justify its original work and would give no reason to complain. The film will hit the screens on July 19, 2019.
