History hit its stride in 1994. After six years of construction, the Channel Tunnel between England and France opened. In South Africa, Nelson Mandala became President. Disney also released their animated film The Lion King. The movie was the highest-grossing movie of the company (now 4th). Next summer they will be releasing a live-action version on July 19, 2019. This date marks the 25th anniversary of the animated film!

 

The world was given a teaser trailer of The Lion King remake on Thanksgiving day. During the trailer we are greeted with familiar scenes such as the sun rising over the Savannah. A look at Pride Rock, as well as Rafiki raising Simba above his head.

This scene is one of my personal favorites because you are presented with the future king. Not only that, it is the height of the song “Circle of Life”, giving you goosebumps when Simba is raised before all the animals of the kingdom.

“Everything the light touches is our kingdom. But a king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun.”

Technology has advanced so much over the last 24 years. It’s safe to say that the remake is going to be an amazing film. Comparing the shots side by side reveals how incredible movie makers are when it comes to technology. A YouTuber has even gone so far as to create a side-by-side comparison of the movies. You get a good look at the characters and the landscape during both trailers.

Everyone should remember this is where Rafiki spreads a red juice/powder on Simba’s brow.

Safe to say the imagery of the 2019 remake is going to be beautiful and stay true to the original movie. Fans were also happy to hear that it’s narrated by James Earl Jones, who plays king Mufasa in both the 1994 original and next year’s film.
