The Lion King - Live Action for the First Time Ever!

Lion costumes

Disney has had success rebooting its animated films Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast, and now plans to do the same thing with The Lion King. Originally released in 1994, the film follows a lion cub as he grows after the death of his father. A trailer released for the 2019 live-action film was so popular that fans posted videos of them and their friends reenacting some of the scenes from that trailer. Experts predict that it will be one of the top hits of the year and that it will help Disney make billions at the box office, along with other films such as Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. Once the Lion King arrives in theaters, kids' Disney costumes will be more popular than ever.

The upcoming reboot of the Lion King will arrive in theaters in July of 2019. Directed by Jon Favreau, it follows the same plot of the original film. Simba is the crown prince and the son of Mufasa, the king of the lion pride. After Scar murders him, Mufasa returns to give his son one last talk before Simba has the chance to avenge his father's death and become the new king. Nala, his adorable female friend from the original film, will also star in this one. Other characters set to return include Timon and Pumbaa. James Earl Jones, who performed the voice of Mufasa in the original film, will return as the character in the reboot. More than 220 million people viewed the teaser trailer online within its first 24 hours, making it one of the most viewed trailers in history!
