Watch: "Lion King" original homage teaser


Disney, in July 2019, the remake "The Lion King" shows how realistically CGI updates key scenes from the original animated film in 1994, focusing at the same time on the young Simba, Mufasa's father and Babiki Rafiki.

From the sun rising above the savannah hot plains to Simba backed by the shaman, Rafiki, this teaser for "The Lion King," which will appear in theaters on July 19, shows that Disney and director Jon Favreau are approaching source material .

A few years later, James Earl Jones returns as Simba's father, Mufasa, surrounded by a new cast: Donald Glover as Simba, Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner as friends Pumbaa and Timon, Chiwetel Ejiofor as a Scar, Beyoncé as friend Nala, and others.

And yet, here we have only a brief look at Simba, shorter than Rifiki, then Mufasa and the queen of Lion Sarabi, with this thesis focused on setting the stage – and setting our expectations with her.

Because it's not an identical shot for replicas – there are compositional changes and a reloaded soundtrack that accentuates our singing voice – preparing for another "lion king" that could bring something beyond its visual review.

And by cutting off the length of the entire 1994 trailer, omitting a wider cast of characters, Disney prepares us for future previews that introduce more of the world and Simba's story.
