A new TV spot has been released for Jon Favreau’s The Lion King. The focus of this video is Timon and Pumbaa, voiced by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogan, respectively. We get a small glimpse at “Hakuna Matata,” and at the end, Timon even jokes about leaving the audience wanting more. Are you excited for this film?
The Lion King will be in theaters on July 19.
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
The all-star voice cast for the film includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce Knowles as Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Billy Eichner as Timon, John Oliver was Zazu, and Seth Rogen as Pumbaa.
