First look at Disney's new The Lion King

We have been given our first look at Disney's new version of The Lion King.

Star Wars and Atlanta star Donald Glover and music megastar Beyonce lead a big-name cast including Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar and John Oliver as Zazu and the return of James Earl Jones as Mufasta.

The trailer includes recreations of some iconic shots, such as Simba, Timon and Pumba by moonlight, Rafiki painting in his tree, the stampede in the gorge and the Lion King himself atop Pride Rock.

Some people are raising questions over Ejiofor's voice which they say is not menacing enough - I have to say it didn't bother me at all - but my younger self did get a thrill at hearing the return of James Earl Jones.

So, sit back, take a look and let me know what you think.
