We’re less than a month away from the release of the much anticipated reinvention of The Lion King and a gorgeous new spot has arrived showing off more of the film’s stunning visuals.
Highlighting the stunning duet shared between Donald Glover’s Simba and Beyonce’s Nala with ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’, this breathtaking spot opens up a whole host of beautiful new footage and focuses in on the relationship’s that Simba shares with both his father Mufasa and Nala.
Watch the new spot below:
Here’s the full synopsis:
Disney’s “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
The Lion King is far and away one of this year’s most anticipated motion picture events and I’m incredibly excited to see it brought back to the big screen here. Espeically as it was the first film I ever saw, and so occupies a very special place in my heart.
The Lion King will arrive in cinemas on July 17.
