25 years later and the words to Hakuna Matata are still stuck in our heads.

This summer, the highly anticipated remake to Disney classic The Lion King hits theatres.

The Lion King stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce as Nala, John Oliver as Zazu, John Kani as Rafiki and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar. James Earl Jones reprises the magnificent role of Mufasa while Billy Eichner voices Timon and Vancouver’s own Seth Rogen voices Pumbaa.


While the original film was traditionally animated, the new one is neither computer animated nor live-action. Director Jon Favreau has described it as not fitting either mold it didn’t use real cameras, real animals or even capture any real performances. The film is considered a photo realistic computer animation.

The Lion King hits theatres on July 19 and will also be available on Disney+. You can watch the trailer to the movie below:
