1st Impression:
Disney's new trailer for The Lion King hit the web and it definitely did not disappoint. After seeing the Jungle Book I looked forward to seeing how Disney could pull off The Lion King and they have done a stellar job. While I was bummed to hear that Jeremy Irons would not be voicing Scar in the film I do not mind Chiwetel Ejiofor as he can turn up the sinister vibe easily.  The new trailer showcased Scar, Zazu and fan favorites Timon & Pumbaa singing one of the film's classic songs.

I can't wait to see the film when it hits theaters this summer as the animated version is one of my all-time favorite films. What did you think of the new trailer?
