ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION With stunning scenery of Africa and some talking wildlife, Disney has dropped its first full length trailer for its realistic-looking remake of "The Lion King", offering a glimpse of the highly anticipated film 100 days ahead of its theatrical release.

It boasts a voice cast that includes music star Beyonce and actors Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Seth Rogen and James Earl Jones, who voiced Mufasa in the 1994 version.
