Circle of Life Sequence from Disney’s New Live Action ‘Lion King’ Previewed at #D23Expo

D23 Expo

Guests of this year’s Disney Movie Panel at the D23 Expo were treated to a special preview of the Circle of Life sequence. Let’s just say it’s nothing sort of incredible!

Director Jon Favreau came out to introduce the footage at “Disney, Marvel Studios & Lucasfilm – Live Action at The Walt Disney Studios” panel at the D23 Expo, and everyone who say it just can’t get over how amazing it was. People in the audience were oohing and aahing throughout, and we’ll just go right ahead and say it: everyone wept.

Here are the highlights:

  • Everyone cheered when the first saw Rafiki
  • Baby Simba was absolutely adorable
  • It was basically a shot-for-shot version of the animated version
  • The animals looked like real animals
  • Simba sneezed and it was so cute

Ahhhhh!!! I can’t wait for this one to hit theaters!
