See the first trailer for live-action Lion King movie

Donald Glover as Simba

While everyone in America is sitting on the couch processing their huge meal, the first trailer for Disney's CGI remake of The Lion King dropped during the Dallas Cowboys (bleh) and Washington Redskins (bleh) game. You've got Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and James Earl Jones (Star Wars) voicing Nala and Mufasa, respectively, while Chiwetel Ejiofor is set to take on the role of the villainous Scar.

It is one of ten movies Disney reportedly has scheduled to release in 2019 which could make it the studio's biggest year to date.

The Lion King is the latest in a string of live-action reboots of iconic Disney films, following 2017's smash success Beauty and the Beast and 2015's Cinderella.

The trailer features a speech from King Mufasa explaining to Simba the limits of the kingdom as well as his destiny to be king. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival.

The upcoming computer-animated film was directed by Jon Favreau, produced by Walt Disney Pictures and written by Jeff Nathanson. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile.
