The Lion King Trailer Comparison

On the path unwinding…

The first official teaser trailer for the live-action remake of The Lion King is here, and we’ve compared some of its most iconic images to the 1994 classic. Below we’ve compiled shots, both from the new trailer and from the original’s The Circle of Life opening sequence. Though much has changed, and the classic sequence is considerably longer than the barely over a minute worth of new footage, many of the instantly memorable images remain.

Take a look. For more on The Lion King live-action remake, check out the first poster for the film and the full voice cast that was announced last year. In case anyone forgot how great the original was, check out where we placed it on our list of the 25 best Disney animated movies.
