Plot Synopsis: After the murder of his father, a young lion prince flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery. -via IMDB 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?
