The Lion King is an adaptation of the original animated story that came out for the first time in 1994, and although more than two decades have passed, it is still one of the highest grossing animated films in history. In honor of the 25th anniversary of the film, the new version of Moviesjoy The Lion King will hit theaters in the summer of 2019, specifically on July 19.
The remake’s plot is expected to remain largely the same as the original 1994 film which follows young lion cub Simba, son of King Mufasa, who witnesses his father’s death in a terrible stampede, secretly caused by Mufasa’s scheming brother Scar. Believing the death to be his fault, Simba flees for a carefree existence living with meerkat Timon and warthog Pumbaa, but finds himself called back to his destiny when Scar’s rule turns sour.
There is at least one new character an elephant shrew, played by Amy Sedaris, has been added to the story, and a couple of the hyenas (played by Florence Kasuma, Keegan Michael-Key and Eric Andre) have had their names changed.
Although it may be that the characters present a new appearance, the most important aspects of the original version will not be lost. Disney revealed that the songs of the original moviesjoy 2019 film will be included in the next version, so surely many expect to hear – and sing – the classic Hakuna Matata melody. Meanwhile, the animals of the African savannah will become more realistic with the help of a green screen game and the latest technology.
