Digital Artist Creates Video Comparing The Lion King 2019 To The Original 1994 Animation Side By Side


Way back in 1994, Disney released The Lion King, which eventually became the highest-grossing animated film ever (it's now the 4th highest grossing).

During the NFL’s traditional Thanksgiving primetime game in the US., Disney released the first teaser trailer of its remake, scheduled to come out in July 2019, and everyone’s losing their minds.

A lot of fans were incredibly happy to hear it’s narrated by James Earl Jones, who plays king Mufasa in both the 1994 original and next year’s film. But arguably the most impressive thing about the teaser is how amazing the visuals look.

To show how much technology has advanced over the past 24 years, digital artist Sowick has even created a video, comparing shots from the two releases side by side. Scroll down till the end to see the video comparison.
