A new trailer has arrived for Disney’s upcoming The Lion King, and it manages to be familiar and new in pretty much equal doses.

It’s sort of a live action remake of the Disney’s animated original, as all the characters are CGI… Hmm, does “realer-looking” work for you? Yeah, we’ll keep workshopping that one.

At any rate, it does look quite magnificent, and we get to see some more iconic scenes recreated in Jon Favreau’s newish vision.

The Lion King will feature the voices of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, Keegan-Michael Key, Beyoncé and, of course, James Earl Jones.

Prepare for The Lion King to pounce into Australian cinemas on July 17.
