The recent footage doesn't reveal much about the upcoming feature, however, it does look somewhat similar to its original animation adaptation of the 1994 classic The Lion King.

The recent Oscar TV spot also highlights the ensemble cast of the reboot which includes Donald Glover, James Earl Jones, Seth Rogen, John Oliver, and more.

The first teaser for the classic animation reboot released on November was also a near recreation of the 1994 animated movie’s opening scene which set the record of 224.6 million views in its first 24 hours of release.
