Disney’s The Lion King opens in theatres July 19, 2019.
From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king must overcome betrayal and tragedy to assume his rightful place on Pride Rock.
The Lion King has long been considered one of the most popular Disney films of all time and the upcoming live-action version looks like it’s only going to reinforce that.
When the first teaser trailer for the new film dropped earlier this week, it racked up a massive 224.6 million global views online in just 24 hours, becoming the most-viewed Disney trailer debut ever.
“To the entire pride: Thank you for helping the teaser trailer for #TheLionKing become the most-viewed Disney trailer debut ever as it reached a record-breaking 224.6 million global views in 24 hours!” the official Disney account tweeted.
