AUSTIN (KXAN) — Walt Disney Studios released the official trailer for its forthcoming remake of 1994’s “The Lion King.”

The video features glimpses of several pivotal scenes and includes the world’s first verbal introduction to several of the movie’s iconic characters. The movie features Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, John Oliver as Zazu and James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa.

“The Lion King” roars into theaters July 19, 25 years after the animated original broke box office records to become — at the time — the second-highest-grossing film of all-time.
