Disney dropped its first official trailer of the highly anticipated movie “The Lion King” on Wednesday. The new trailer featured the stunning scenery of Africa and region's wildlife.

The 1994 animated version of the studio’s classic is coming to the back screen this year and the latest trailer has left each viewer breathless.

With its much realistic look, the new movie is not a live action version of the 1994 animate classic; it does use the amazing VFX to bring to life the animal characters in a stunning realistic way.

Jon Favreau, who also directed “The Jungle Book” in 2016, has assembled an all-star voice cast in latest edition of "The Lion King".

The cast includes Donald Glover as Simba and Beyoncé as Nala. James Earl Jones is making a comeback with his role of Mufasa, Simba's father.

The latest trailer is nearly two minutes long and features the glimpses of the Pride Rock, Simba’s childhood friend as well as new pals Timon and Pumbaa.

The trailer also features the first, albeit brief, taste of a musical number.

The summer release will be the third remake of Disney classic this year, following ‘Dumbo’ this month and ‘Aladdin’ in May.

‘The Lion King’ will be released on 19 July, after the 25 years of the original released.
