Disney just released the first teaser of The Lion King, the expected remake or new version in "flesh and blood" (or at least not in cartoon 2-D, but animation in 3-D). The Lion King The film will star, in voice, by Donald Glover ("Atlanta", also known by his musical name Childish Gambino). James Earl Jones, who voiced Mufasa in the original 1994 film, will return to that role. Beyoncé will make the voice of Nala. The teaser is practically a live-action copy of the trailer for the original 1994 film, with several planes and almost identical movements. The cast of the new version again has the great James Earl Jones as Mufasa, but for the rest, they have opted for new actors including Donald Glover as Simba, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Beyoncé as Nala. The film, directed by Jon Favreau, opens on July 19.
