To be very honest...this trailer isn't very good. Don't get me wrong, I love the Lion King but from this trailer it doesn't look like anything special.

Mother of God. Disney predicted "the dress" fiasco years before it happened. They must have some psychics on their development team.

"He looks blue."
"No, I'd say brownish gold"

Timon and Pumba argued about that dress before it was cool...and it's just wrong in it's every aspect. Come on, guys, why do you do this to me??? :(((

There, right there, the best most wonderful and interesting movie of ALL time! I love it! forgotten movies like this, Lilo and Stitch, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and so many more that I love, some people don't understand that these movies may don't have the best graphics, but it's amazing. It's about the journey  :)

This is literally the worst trailer I've ever seen in my life, it gives away the entire movie, lol. Despite that I bought this trailer on 35mm film, like the ones they played in theaters which is pretty awesome.

God I hate that old Disney trailer narrator. His voice and the stuff he says ruin these trailers for me as they don't do the movies justice. He sounds like an upbeat salesman in a toy commercial. A Disney movie narrator should sound like a storyteller. This guy just sucks all the emotion and wonder out of these movies. And he does it in EVERY single Disney movie trailer.
