For many, it was the film that defined their childhood, but since more than 20 years since the original cartoon came in, it has been given a CGI makeover, giving a more realistic approach to the characters.

After seeing that much of fur, we expect to hear David Attenborough’s dulcet tones describing the scene, but no, it isn’t real. It’s just a film.

The trailer for Lion King came out during the Oscars last night and with a release date of July 19, fans won’t have to wait long to see the film in full glory.

This isn’t the first time a Disney classic has been remade, it follows a trend of the films being remade for modern audiences, including The Jungle Book, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast also on the cards.


But we don’t doubt that Lion King is highly anticipated by fans, as it was just last year that the original cartoon version was voted as the best-animated film of all time.

Lion King taught us all Hakuna Matata, dealing with sadness, and a lot more life lessons.

Most of you will know by now that the film sees a young lion named Simba as he grows up to be the King of Pride Lands, helped by Pumbaa and Timon. His Uncle Scar tried to stand in Simba’s way. However, in a twist, it’s revealed that Scar isn’t Simba’s uncle or the brother of Mufasa.

Talking with Hello Giggles, producer Don Halm revealed, “The way lions operate in the wild… when the male lion gets old, another rogue lion comes and kills the head of the pride.”

“What that does is it causes the female lions to go into heat [to reproduce], and then the new younger lion kills the king and then he kills all the babies. Now he’s the new lion that’s running the pride.”

He added: “There was always this thing about well, how do you have these two [male] lions? Occasionally there are prides that do have two male lions, in an interesting dynamic because they’re not equals [since they don’t have the same parents].

“One lion will always kind of be off in the shadows. We were trying to use those animal truths to underpin the story so we sort of figured Scar and Mufasa couldn’t really be from the same gene pool.”
