Disney is doing just fine hitting us right in the feels with more new teasers and sneak peeks from the upcoming movie. The thought of what anticipates us in the upcoming movie based on the classic animated film always turn us into a sobbing mess.
The giant media conglomerate seized the opportunity during the 2019 Oscars ad-breaks with a dose of nostalgia in the form of a new teaser trailer for the upcoming reboot, The Lion King.
Though the trailer mostly recombines footage from the first trailer from last November, the new “Long Live the King” teaser video brought us scenes of one of the most iconic moments from the 1994 version: The Circle of Life.
We get to revisit the sunrise scene, with Rafiki performing a ritual on baby cub Simba followed by the iconic lift and a watchful animal kingdom bowing to its rightful king.
In addition to the teaser trailer, Disney also released an epically-scaled poster on social media.
