The Circle Of Life Just Got Sweeter: New Lion King Stills Released

The quality of modern day cinematography is goddamn mind blowing. Now I’m not quite one to lose my shit over some pre-release movie hype, but this is different. Generally, my cynical self will see right through the money-making, media-milking ploys of Hollywood but again, this is different. 

The Lion King echoes my most treasured childhood mems, and with such precious undertones, I will most certainly indulge in all the pre-release movie hype I can get my hands on. Cue Disney’s sneaky release of some top-notch movie stills that pull so violently on my heart strings, I need to take a few deep breaths. Please view these stills with discretion – have a few Kleenex handy, maybe take a seat in a comfortable recliner. It’s gonna be a tear-jerker, kids and boy am I ready.

Ahead of Jon Favreau’s remake, set to be released this July, rumours are flying around that it’ll rake in more dollars in the box office than Avengers: Endgame. With all the hysteria over the final instalment to the current Marvel saga, I reckon this is a huge call I’m willing to back. The Lion King has nostalgic value unlike any contemporary movie franchise. 90s babies, rejoice in some quality nostalgia that brings back all the pre-2000 feels.
