Disney's "The Lion King" remake roars to life with new trailer

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION With stunning scenery of Africa and some talking wildlife, Disney has dropped its first full length trailer for its realistic-looking remake of "The Lion King", offering a glimpse of the highly anticipated film 100 days ahead of its theatrical release.

The new movie, made with computer-generated imagery, follows the plot of the Oscar winning 1994 animation about lion cub Simba, who flees his kingdom after his villainous uncle Scar connives to take his father Mufasa's place as king.

It boasts a voice cast that includes music star Beyonce and actors Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Seth Rogen and James Earl Jones, who voiced Mufasa in the 1994 version.

Under 2 minutes long, it shows off the Pride Rock setting, with glimpses of Simba's childhood friend and love interest Nala as well as new pals Timon and Pumbaa.

As well as Scar, Mufasa's voice is also heard in the trailer.

The new trailer, which follows a first look of the film in November, garnered nearly 1.5 million views in the first two hours after it was posted on Disney's Twitter feed.
