Disney released the first trailer for the “Lion King” remake over the holiday weekend, and it almost broke a record. The trailer got 224.6 million views within 24 hours.
That’s just short of the 238 million views that the “Avengers: Infinity War” trailer got in its first 24 hours.
The “live-action” CGI remake of “The Lion King” opens July 19th.
It stars the voices of Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, and Beyoncé as Nala.
This new “Lion King” trailer repeats a lot of imagery from the trailer for the 1994 original . . . and someone has already made a video comparing the two side-by-side.
