With 100 days to go until the release of the live-action remake of The Lion King, Disney has unveiled a brand new full-length trailer for the movie.

The trailer is quite simply magnificent and offers a dramatic look at the infamous stampede scene which is guaranteed to get you reaching for the nearest box of tissues. We also get a look at Simba, Scar, Nala, and Mufasa in action, whilst Timon and Pumbaa lighten up the tense atmosphere created during the trailer with a teaser of them singing ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’.
