This article contains spoilers for The Lion King, if you've never seen it, if that's possible.

The Lion King is the latest Disney movie to get the live action treatment, and it definitely seems true to form.

The first trailer - released to coincide with Thanksgiving in the United States - features James Earl Jones narrating over the famous scene of a young Simba being held aloft over the kingdom. As expected, this looks fantastic and will probably make a ton of movie because Favreau knows how to perfectly craft these fresh CGI Disney updates.

The teaser recreates the opening scene from the original Lion King nearly beat for beat with Rafiki lifting baby Simba on Pride Rock, showing the youngster off to the rest of the animal kingdom.

The Lion King hits theaters next July. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, John Oliver and Keeygan Michael and and James Earl.

The Lion King was directed by Jon Favreau, who took control of the live-action and computer-generated version of Disney's The Jungle Book.

The trailer opens with a voice over from Mufasa as he speaks to Simba.

The original Lion King made more than $968 million at the box office and won multiple Academy Awards, in addition to a pair of Grammy Awards for its soundtrack.

The trailer ends with the first look at Mufasa, who is seen roaring at an unseen enemy, perhaps his evil brother Scar. Tell us your thoughts in the comments down below!

The Lion King remake is scheduled for a July 19, 2019 release and will feature an original song by Beyonce and four songs by Elton John from the original film.
