These Photos Of The Lion King Actors Meeting Their CGI Characters Are Groundbreaking

As if we weren’t excited enough about the live-action remake of the classic movie!

Disney’s latest live-action film has been receiving a lot of buzz as of late including a record-breaking trailer that dropped in November of last year. Some would argue that the film is already on track to be the king of the box office! Adding to the enthusiasm amongst millennials and gen-Zs alike, a handful of promo photos for the all-new Lion King movie were released to the internet – and to be honest, now we can’t stop thinking about how amazing it’s going to be to witness Beyoncé embodying a literal Queen of the jungle.

The photos showcase member of the star-studded cast – such as Donald Glover, Seth Rogan, John Oliver, and Billy Eichner – against a black background facing the photorealistic animated character in which they’ll be bringing to life.

Check out the photos below!

The Lion King hits theaters on July 19 and will feature a reworked soundtrack by Hans Zimmer, Elton John, and undoubtedly, Beyoncé with plans of an early album release date of July 11.

Not only are we looking forward to a modern spin on a classic tale as well as singing to a reworked roster of beloved songs, but for the greater good, Disney has also announced its Protect The Pride campaign. The major studio aims to raise awareness about the protection of Africa’s lion population and received a little help from a handle of actors working on the project.
