'Lion King' Trailer: Fans Notice Scar Looks a Little Different | Inside Edition

Fans Notice Scar Looks a Little Different in Disney's Spectacular New 'Lion King' Trailer

The anticipated remake roars into theaters July 19.

It's going to be the main event of the summer.

Disney's beloved movie "The Lion King" is getting a star-studded live-action remake this July, and the company just dropped a new trailer. 

The movie features the voices of Donald Glover, Beyonce, Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Oliver, Billy Eichner, and James Earl Jones reprising his role of Mufasa. It's directed by Jon Favreau, who also helmed the live-action remakes of “The Jungle Book” and “Iron Man.” 

Eichner, who will voice Timon, tweeted the trailer Wednesday morning saying that his character and Pumba, voiced by Seth Rogan, will do their own singing. 

The majestic trailer takes us through the landscape of Africa, where we meet the animals and hear Scar and Mufasa discuss mortality.

Earlier this year, Disney released a teaser trailer online this is the first full-length version. It's also their first time seeing the villain, Scar. 

Some fans were conflicted that the new Scar, voiced by Ejiofor, didn’t look much like the original, voiced by Jeremy Irons. 

“The Lion King” hits theaters July 19. It is the third live-action remake Disney is releasing this year after last month’s “Dumbo” and this summer’s “Aladdin.”
