The latest ‘Lion King’ trailer introduces us to Scar, Timon and Pumbaa

The upcoming live-action remake of “The Lion King” is 100 days away from hitting theaters and Disney is celebrating it by giving fans another look at the flick. On Wednesday (April 10), the House of Mouse unleashed the second official trailer for the Jon Favreau-directed film.

The almost-two-minute clip begins with lion cubs Simba and Nala wandering into the elephant graveyard after Mufasa gave Simba specific orders not to go into that area. As the footage plays, the viewer hears Simba’s uncle Scar begin his speech about “life not being fair.” As the voiceover plays, we finally get to see Scar (who was missing from the first trailer) in all his dark glory as well as his somewhat loyal but overall idiotic hyena henchmen.

As if seeing Scar and the hyenas weren’t enough, we finally get to see Timon, Pumbaa, and that heart-wrenching stampede scene that resulted in Mufasa’s death and gallons of tears (yeah, we still get choked up about it).

But it’s not all sad and depressing scenes. The clip also includes Simba’s growing up sequence while in the care of Timon and Pumbaa and Nala and Simba meeting for the first time as adult lions.

There’s also a special little treat at the end of the trailer with Timon and Pumbaa giving us a snippet of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”

Classic.

Disney’s “The Lion King” will star Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, John Oliver as Zazu, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumbaa, and Eric Andre and Keegan-Michael Key as the hyenas. Beyoncé, Elton John, and Hans Zimmer will reportedly contribute to the film’s soundtrack.

“The Lion King” will roar its way to theaters on July 19.

Watch: Stranger Things season three trailer includes sun, fun, and a Demogorgon

It’s time to put your favorite cassette into your sibling’s stolen Walkman because we’re about to take a trip back to Hawkins, Indiana. On Wednesday (March 20), Netflix released the first full trailer for the upcoming season of their smash hit, “Stranger Things.”

The teaser finds the crew celebrating their freedom from school and evil, at least for the time being. The three-minute-clip includes a look at how Max and Eleven have been integrated into the group. How Eleven and Max’s friendship has grown. The impact of having girls in the group has on the once strong-friendship (especially for Will and Dustin). How Dustin and Steve’s brother figure connection has evolved since the end of season two. And how Joyce and Hopper’s budding relationship is going.

But because this is “Stranger Things,” don’t expect the big bad of the season to be jealousy. Halfway through the clip, the carefree aura of summer vacation switches as Hopper tells an unknown person (we’re led to believe it’s either Joyce of Eleven) how he still wants them to feel like Hawkins is still their home. As Hopper’s voice is heard, a clip of a man with a gun in a funhouse plays. We also can’t forget our introduction to an evolved and freaky-looking Demogorgon.

As the tagline for this season says, “one summer can change everything.”

“Stranger Things” returns to Netflix on July 4.

The toys are back in the first full trailer for ‘Toy Story 4’

The toys are back in the first full trailer for “Toy Story 4.” On Tuesday (March 19), the first official trailer for the upcoming Disney flick debuted on Good Morning America. The two-and-half-minute clip gives us a better look at the storyline for the movie; something that has been kept under lock and key since the first teaser was unveiled in November.

The trailer begins with Woody introducing the toy squad to Bonnie’s newest creation/toy, a self-aware Spork named Forky. Knowing that he was only made for “soup, salad, maybe chili and then the trash,” the utensil decides to escape. Since he is currently Bonnie’s favorite toy, Woody sets out to bring back the Spork, no matter what.

Along the way, he finds Bo Peep —who went missing— in an office. When Woody and Forky sneak in, they are attacked by some toys that look like they may have come from our darkest nightmares. After being saved by Bo Peep (in her new attire), she introduces Woody to a new world where he no longer needs to belong to one child, but a slew of children.

“Who needs a kid’s room when you can have all of this,” Bo Peep tells Woody as she introduces him to the film’s carnival setting.

While taking a look at this new potential world of lost toys, it makes Woody begin to wonder if maybe this might be the best option for him.

“I was made to help a child. I don’t remember it being his hard.”

While this is all happening, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the toys set out to save their missing friends and bring them back to an upset Bonnie.

Watch the new trailer for “Toy Story 4” above.

Tom Hanks and Tim Allen return to their iconic roles of Woody and Buzz Lightyear. Joan Cusack returns as Jessie and Annie Potts as Bo Peep. New to the cast is Keanu Reeves in an unspecified role.

“Toy Story 4” will fly into theaters on June 21.

 

Listen: Natalie Portman gets ‘Wrapped Up’ in final ‘Vox Lux’ trailer

We’ve seen Natalie Portman fully become troubled pop star Celeste in the past “Vox Lux” trailers, but now, we finally get the opportunity to hear the award-winning actress’ vocals. On Wednesday (Nov. 28), the final trailer for the upcoming film was unleashed.

At the beginning of the two-minute video, Celeste tells her adoring audience that she was going to “take it back to where it all began.” As promised, the clip goes back in time to that fateful day that changed everything for Celeste and her sister Eleanor as they took the stage to perform at a vigil following a school shooting. Teenage Celeste takes the stage to perform a song her and her sister wrote called “Wrapped Up.”

As the viewer gets a quick look at her life as a teenager encountering several struggles, it soon returns to present day.

Like her teenage self, the viewer watches all the battles adult Celeste encounters like trying to remain relevant, raising her daughter, and the struggles of stardom.

“Wrapped Up,” like all the other songs featured in the film, was written by Sia and sung by Portman.

“Vox Lux” was written and directed by Bradley Corbet. Joining Portman are Stacy Martin as Celeste’s sister; Jude Law as Celeste’s manager; Jennifer Ehle as her no-nonsense publicist; and Willem Dafoe as the film’s narrator.

“Vox Lux” is due out on Dec. 7 in New York and Los Angeles while its wide theatrical release will happen a week later on Dec. 14. “Wrapped Up” will be available for download beginning Dec. 7 while the “Vox Lux” soundtrack will be available beginning on Dec. 14.

Watch: Disney releases first live action ‘Lion King’ trailer

“Everything the light touches is our kingdom.”

If that opening line did not send chills down, your spine, then the first look at Disney’s upcoming live action remake of “The Lion King” may do the trick. On Thursday (Nov. 22), the House of Mouse unleashed the first trailer for their upcoming Jon Favreau-directed film.

Making its debut during the Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins football game, the minute-and-a-half teaser introduces the viewer to several important characters from the film including Simba, Rafiki, and of course Mufasa.

The newly released clip is a shot-by-shot recreation of the animated film’s 1994 trailer and even includes the movie’s iconic Elton John and Tim Rice-penned song, “The Circle of Life.”

If watching all the animals from the Pride Lands gather to witness lion cub Simba’s debut wasn’t enough to get you to say “aw,” wait until Mufasa’s spirit returns to adult lion Simba, urging him to “remember.”

Missing from the clip is the film’s protagonist and worst uncle ever, Scar, but we’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot of him as more trailers make their way online.

Disney’s “The Lion King” will star Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, John Oliver as Zazu, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumbaa, and Eric Andre and Keegan-Michael Key as the hyenas.

“The Lion King” will roar its way to theaters on July 19, 2019.

“The Lion King” live action remake comes on the heels of Disney’s other successful live action remakes including “Cinderella,” “The Jungle Book,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and the yet-to-be-released “Aladdin” remake which will hit theaters in May of 2019.
