Be warned, if you’re still not over the trauma that the original Lion King dealt you, you’re not going to be able to deal with this trailer.
15 seconds in and I was a complete mess, mainly owing to that goddam soundtrack in the background.
Similar to the film’s previous teaser trailer, the official trailer recreates a lot of from the original underpinned by James Earl Jones’ narration.
But here we get our first glimpse of Scar, Nala and Zazu but most importantly, we’re treated to a super brief rendition of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and Timon and Pumba are everything I hope they would be and more.
I smell the Box Office burning up.
