The Lion King Live Action
There are so many great animated movies out there, but growing up I especially remember one, The Lion King. For me, it was probably my favourite of them all and I’m not surprised if it were to so many other people too.
in September 2016 the plans of remaking The Lion King were confirmed. Walt Disney’s original animated Lion King was released in 1994 and now 25 years later in 2019, we can enjoy the live action of the greatest animated movie of all.
Who is excited? I certainly am waiting for the release impatiently.
The film is scheduled to be theatrically released in the US on July 19, 2019.
Returning of The Greatest
Can you believe it? Beyoncé Knowles-Carter plays Adult Nala! The original animated Lion King had beautiful tracks and Walt Disney Records will release the original soundtrack for the new live-action remake of The Lion King. Featuring “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” with Beyoncé and Donald Glover.
There’s more! Golden words from the original Mufasa are back! “Remember Who You Are, Remember”. James Earl Jones who was the voice of Mufasa in 1994 returns in The Lion King Live Action 2019. The director Jon Favreau said: “I remember when we were recording his voice for Mufasa, he asked me if I had any direction for him, and I didn’t know what to say. It was like, ‘Just do what you do. You are him.’
As if remaking of the film isn’t exciting enough the main cast signed is very impressive too

Story of The Lion King
The Lion King is a photorealistic computer-animated remake of Disney’s originally animated 1994 film of the same name.
Simba is the son of Mufasa and the Prince of the Pride Lands who hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps. Mufasa’s brother, Scar, betrays Mufasa and takes over the Pride Lands, forcing Simba into exile. Simba meets his new friends Timon and Pumbaa with whom he will live until he grows up. Simba fights his past, rebuilds himself fully and takes over what is rightfully his.
The original Lion King is definitely a movie of our time, we grew up with it. It’s one of the most emotional and beautiful movies of all time. We are going to see the live action of it, for sure!
