It’s great news today for us 90s kids (or bad news for some). The Lion King remake received a new poster, driving up the hype train.

The movie poster can be seen below, featuring Mustafa Mufasa and little Simba as the highlight of this beautiful photorealistic piece of artwork.

Jon Favreau, the guy most of us know as Happy Hogan in Iron Man, tweeted the poster earlier, simply saying “New poster for #TheLionKing”.

The all-star cast introduces:

  • Donald Glover as Simba
  • Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala
  • Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar
  • Seth Rogen as Pumbaa 
  • Billy Eichner as Timon
  • John Kani as Rafiki
  • John Oliver as Zazu
  • Alfre Woodard as Sarabi
  • Eric Andre as Azizi
  • Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari
  • Florence Kasumba as Shenzi
  • James Earl Jones as Mufasa

The remake’s teaser trailer was also just released revealing a luscious African landscape full of semi-realistic CG animals that can talk. You can watch the teaser trailer below

Look how cute Simba is! With the advantage of cutting-edge animation technology, Disney’s Lion King will come roaring into theatres on 19 July. Or scaring the beejesus out of them. Baboons in real life aren’t quite as cuddly when you think about it.
