Disney revealed the Lion King live action trailer a few hours ago to the world and its amazingly good. The trailer unexpectedly aired during the Cowboys/Redskins football game blowing people’s minds away.
The live action trailer showcases one of the most icon scenes from the Lion King franchise when Rafiki, the baboon presents the future king cub to his people which is pretty awesome and adorable. Not forgetting Hans Zimmer’s epic score and James Earl Jones’ steady narration as he reprises his role as Mufasa.
