The teaser trailer opens with the sun rising above the Pride Lands. We then hear the familiar voice of James Earl Jones, who is reprising his role as Mufasa.

“Everything the light touches is our kingdom, but a king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, the sun will set on my time here and will rise with you as the new king,” he says as we get our first look at a young Simba.

Disney fans were overjoyed to see one of the most iconic scenes from the 1994 classic featured in the trailer.

At the end of the teaser trailer, Rafiki proudly holds up Simba in front of the kingdom as Circle of Life plays in the background.

Is anyone else feeling extremely nostalgic?

Donald Glover will voice Simba in the 2019 adaption. Beyoncé will voice Nala, James Earl Jones reprises his role as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as the evil Scar and John Kani will voice Rafiki.

The Lion King will be released on July 19, 2019.

Some of our childhood Disney favourites are being remade into live action films and we can’t wait to see them.

But how much longer must we anticipate the release of these classic movies?

Here are the most recent dates announced for a few of our favourite films.

1. The Lion King

The movie is returning to the big screens on July 19, 2019, and the cast looks incredible.

From the same director of the live action Jungle Book Jon Favreau, the film will star Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce as Naala, and, of course, James Earl Jones as Mufasa.

2. Aladdin

On May 24, 2019, the live-action version of Aladdin will be in cinemas.

Will Smith has confirmed his role as The Genie, quite fittingly, while Mena Massoud will play Aladdin and Naomi Scott will star as Jasmine.

3. Frozen 2

Unfortunately, we have to wait over a year for Frozen to be released on November 27, 2019, but Disney promises it will be worth the wait.

Although nothing is known about the plot of the film, the original main cast has confirmed its return.

4. Toy Story

Toy Story 4 will be in theatres on June 21, 2019. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will be returning to voice their iconic roles as Woody and Buzz.

The sequel will also feature a love story between Woody and Little Bo Peep.

Even though it’s a while longer until their release dates, next year has a great lineup for Disney films.

And we are excited to relive these magical adventures.

It feels like every Disney movie is getting the live-action treatment, and we must admit, we’re pretty happy about it.

We are mega Disney fans so seeing our favourite tales being remade into live-action movies is pretty exciting.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, one of our favourite Disney movies will be transformed into a live-action movie.

Rumour has it, we’ll soon be reunited with our favourite Disney duo as Lilo and Stitch is set to be remade into a live-action movie.

We’ll be returning to Hawaii in the live-action/CG hybrid and we’re intrigued to see how the team will transform the beloved animated tale.

Disney has lined up quite the impressive creative team for the Lilo and Stitch remake with Mike Van Waes working on the script and Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich producing the beloved tale.

The producers are already working on the Aladdin remake so it’s safe to say the live-action Lilo and Stitch won’t disappoint Disney fans.

Lilo and Stitch may not have been a massive box office success, especially when you compare it to films like Frozen and Moana, but it is one of our favourites.

Lilo’s sassy attitude, her deep love for Elvis’ music and her kind-heart make her one of the greatest Disney characters.

There’s no scene we relate to more than the one where Lilo lies down on the ground, listens to her Elvis record and yells, “Leave me alone to die.”

We can’t wait to be reunited with the Elvis-loving, Hawaiin-dancing heroine.
