The almost 2-minute clip opens with a Scar (Chiwetel Ejiofor) voiceover, where he utters, "Life's not fair, is it?" - a line Jeremy Irons' Scar told a mouse in the animated film before hesitantly letting it go.
Jon Favreau earlier directed the live action version of The Jungle Book and received a lot of acclaim for it.
The Lion King is one of the many live-action remakes of Disney's classic films after Beauty and the Beast, the recently released Dumbo and the upcoming Aladdin. Maybe I'm the audience for this after all.
In addition to Rogen, Eichner and Ejiofor, the primary cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala and James Earl Jones as Mufasa. Scar, Mufasa's brother-and former heir to the throne-has plans of his own. Nevertheless, the animation is stunning, and given the nostalgia factor, I wouldn't be surprised if The Lion King ends up as the highest grossing film of 2019.
"Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance", Mufasa - a role James Earl Jones reprises, 25 years later - tells the young Simba as the two gaze out over their animal kingdom from Pride Rock.
