Disney’s reimagining of their 1994 animated classic The Lion King is set to hit theaters later this month, and in anticipation of the film’s release, the studio has unveiled a brand new batch of photos.
But these aren’t your ordinary photos. Since the film touts some of the most advanced photorealistic technology to date, it matches the cast with the respective characters they are voicing. Check out the images below.
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.
Based on the 1994 animated film of the same name, pioneering filmmaking techniques have been used to bring the iconic characters to the big screen in a whole new way. In addition to the new posters, Disney has also released a special preview of the upcoming film that highlights all of the visual effects that are used to bring these animals to life. You can check out all of the posters and the video below.
Disney has released the first teaser trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, the sequel to the hugely successful Maleficent. Angelina Jolie returns to play the titular scorned winged sorceress who cursed Princess Aurora to be put under eternal sleep that can only be dispelled by a kiss. But unlike the traditional live-action adaptations, the film took a much different approach by having the film take place from Maleficent’s perspective and exploring why she was bitter towards the kingdom and the young princess.
Now she’s back, along with Elle Fanning, who reprises her role as Princess Aurora. Joining them will be Michelle Pfeiffer as a new character created for this film. Check out the new trailer and six new images from the film below.
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.
