As the release date of the new live action Lion King draws near, Disney is pulling out all the stops when it comes to advertising the movie. It has now released a new trailer featuring Beyonce’s Nala encouraging Simba to come home. You can watch it above.
What Does The New Trailer For The Lion King Show?
The trailer in question is just 30 seconds long but packs in some new content regarding the relationships which these characters have. It mostly contains footage that we have already seen in the previous trailers but there are a few exceptions. The most obvious is Nala’s inclusion as she says that they need Simba and she wants him to come home. In addition, the trailer gives us a few brief looks at the climactic battle between Simba and Scar. It ends with Timon and Pumba announcing that they have arrived.
So it looks like, Beyonce’s Nala will be the one to bring Simba back home.
What Is The Lion King About?
For those of you who missed out on seeing the animated classic, The Lion King tells the story of a young cub named Simba, who is manipulated into fleeing the pride lands he was destined to rule after his uncle Scar murders King Mufasa and convinces the Prince that he is responsible for his father’s death. After meeting two eccentric companions and reuniting with childhood friends Nala, an adult Simba finds himself confronted with the choice of remaining in exile or returning home to end the tyrannical rule of Scar and take his rightful place as King. It is being directed by Jon Fabreau, from a script written by Jeff Nathanson.
The Lion King is all set for release in theatres on 19 July, 2019.
