Disney Sucked Me In With The Lion King Trailer
I'm usually not a sucker for Disney movies, but the trailer for The Lion King looks pretty amazing.
When I was watching football on Thanksgiving and the trailer came on, I was mesmerized. I tried to fight it, but the CGI of the animals, James Earl Jones' voice, and that music hooked me. I almost held my 3 year old up over my head, but I couldn't scoop him up fast enough. So I grabbed a forkful of mashed potatoes and held it towards the television. The Lion King is going to be the biggest Disney production of all time, I have no doubt in my mind. Disney can't screw this up and I don't believe they will.
The Lion King Official Tease trailer - which debuted yesterday - has already been viewed almost 11 million times in about 24 hours. It's scheduled to hit theaters on July 19th. The movie might do a a billion in the Summer months alone.
