Brand New Clip Of The Lion King Gives Us Our First Look At Timon And Pumbaa

Watch Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen bring the iconic characters of Timon and Pumbaa to life in the latest clip of The Lion King

With only eight days to go until Jon Favreau’s The Lion King hits UK cinemas, Disney has released two brand new clips to get us all even more excited.

The first reviews for the new live-action remake came in yesterday, and despite a few negative reactions, the feeling amongst the majority of critics is that Favreau has created something of a visual masterpiece, with plenty of people praising the incredible visual effects and managing to bring the beloved cartoon characters from the 1994 hit to life.

And if the positive reviews weren’t enough to get us all excited for the remake, then the new clips released by Disney definitely will!

In this clip, we see Timon and Pumbaa meet Simba for the first time and you really get an immediate feel for their chemistry. The early reviews have also been full of praise for the Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen’s performances and judging by this clip, you can see why! Watch the new clip below.

Disney has also released another brand new clip in the run-up to the release of the film, which shows Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Scar leading his young nephew, voiced by JD McRary, to the pit to practise his roar. Fans of the original will no doubt know what comes next…

Thankfully, Disney has left that part out, no one needs to see that at this time on a Thursday.

Check out the second new clip below.

The Lion King hits UK cinemas on July 19 and you can even pre-book your tickets here.
