The first trailer of the Disney live version of The Lion King has been released.

The film, which will be released next summer, has very important names, such as Beyonce, Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Seth Rogan.

In the trailer we see the family opening moments of the story, where Rafiki presents a young Simba to the animals of the Pride Lands.

It was aired during the traditional NFL Thanksgiving primetime game in the United States.

Here is a blow of nostalgia for you:

Fans of the original film were delighted to hear the trailer narrated by James Earl Jones, who plays King Mufasa in both the original film of 1994 and next year.

The trailer suggests that the new movie is following the original story, although with Simba in the trailer, some people are worried about what that means for their father …

It is directed by Jon Favreau, who was behind the successful live action remake of The Jungle Book.

Donald Glover will play Simba, Beyonce will play Nala and Chiwetel Ejiofor to his uncle Scar.

"A director's dream is to assemble a team as talented as this to bring this classic story to life," Jon said.

Last year, Newsbeat spoke with the cast of London's Lion King musical about the new movie.

And Janique Charles, who plays Nala in the West End, had some advice for Beyonce.

The reaction of the fans to the new trailer has been very positive, especially of the young Americans who were watching during football.

The film will debut in July 2019.
