Aside from Glover (Simba) and Beyoncé (Nala), the film boasts of an impressive lineup of favourite actors including Alfre Woodard, Chiwetel Ejiofor and James Earl Jones, who reprises his voice role from the 1994 animated film as Mufasa, Simba’s dad.

Lauded by many as a classic, the original film detailed Simba’s childhood, which was marred by the loss of his father at the hands of his treacherous uncle Scar. After fleeing from his family, Simba returns as an adult to avenge his father’s death by duking it out with his uncle.

The film drops July 19. Check out the posters below:
