Disney Releases Character Posters for ‘The Lion King’


July 19 is just around the corner and Disney is making its final marketing calls for the upcoming retelling of the classic film The Lion King.

Disney’s “The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau (“The Jungle Book”), journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born.

With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Part of their marketing is a series of posters featuring individual characters. Here’s a look:
