The marketing campaign for Disney’s upcoming The Lion King has relied a lot more on the visual than the auditory. We haven’t heard much from the cast, at least not directly. Any dialogue heard came from characters that are out of sight.
The marketing campaign for The Lion King has been leaning towards nostalgia by giving us the updated looks of the animated original. Jon Favreau directs this newly updated kinda sorta live-action take on the Walt Disney Animation Studio classic, which sees Simba learning what it takes to be a true king.
Now there is a new trailer out that shows us just how beautiful this film will look and how far the technology has come since Favreau used something similar in The Jungle Book. Check it out below.
Just moments after Disney announced the release date for director Jon Favreau‘s The Lion King, the studio also announced the two actors who will provide the voices of Timon and Pumbaa, the meerkat and warthog duo that help Simba learn about Hakuna Matata.
According to new reports, Billy on the Street host Billy Eichner and This Is The End‘s Seth Rogen will now voice the two. They will be joining the previously announcedDonald Glover, who voices Simba, and James Earl Jones, who once again voices Mufasa. Beyonce Knowlesis in talks to voice Nala. More on the story below.
A new trailer for Epic, an animated film that follows the secret lives of forest beings protecting their sacred land from a force that seeks to destroy it, has been released.
A teenage girl spending time at a relative’s house gets shrunken down to their size and joins the forces of the forest dwellers to help them save the forest world and her world as well. Sure it may sound like a revamped version of Ferngully, but Epic doesn’t look like anything the Blue Sky has done before. The studio also worked on the Ice Age franchise and RIO.
