Exclusive look at the upcoming “The Lion King” film
“The Lion King” is one of the most anticipated films of the year, and Entertainment Weekly and Disney have revealed some special looks at the characters from the upcoming “The Lion King” movie. The new film will not be shot-for-shot identical to the 1994 animated classic. The film will incorporate songs from the original film as well.
Disney’s “The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau (“The Jungle Book”), 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.
