(WXYZ) — Disney released a brand new trailer for its live action remake of "The Lion King."

Nearly 25 years after the first movie appeared on the big screen, the remake will be in theatres July 19, 2019.

Stars slated to appear in the remake are Beyonce, Donald Glover, James Earl Jones and more.

The 2019 edition of "The Lion King" will employ CGI-like technology to create live action, opposed to traditional animation, which was used in the original in 1994.

The original "Lion King" movie earned nearly $1 billion, after several re-releases.
