Somebody Compared The Lion King 2019 To The 1994 Animation Side By Side

1994 was a big year. Nelson Mandela became the President of South Africa, The Channel Tunnel between England and France opened after six years of construction. And, of course, Disney released The Lion King, which eventually became the highest-grossing animated film ever (now, 4th).

During the NFL’s traditional Thanksgiving primetime game in the US., the company released the first teaser trailer of the Lion King 2019 remake, scheduled to come out next summer, and everyone’s losing their minds.

A lot of fans were incredibly happy to hear it’s narrated by James Earl Jones, who plays king Mufasa in both the 1994 Disney’s Lion King original and next year’s film. But arguably the most impressive thing about the teaser is how amazing the visuals look, not to mention everyone’s excitement in meeting the Lion King characters, such as Nala and Simba, once more.

Judging by the above - so much more character and facial expression in the original animation.
