The Lion King is one of the most loved classics among animated films.

The best scene in Disney's incredibly photo-realistic remake of The Lion King features a computer-generated beetle rolling a ball of computer-generated dung across a computer-generated African landscape. "The Lion King" would replace "Incredibles 2", which launched a year ago with $182.7 million, as the ninth biggest North American launch of all time. Some forecasts estimate the tentpole will pull in as much as $180 million as it launches in a record 4,725 domestic locations.

The movie also surpassed the local opening day box office of Avengers: Infinity War and claimed the biggest opening yet for a Disney Studio film, with the Motion Picture Distributors' Association of New Zealand revealing it has raked in $1.3 million so far. Directed and produced by Jon Favreau and written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion King of 2019 stars the voices of Donald Glover as Simba and James Earl Jones as Mufasa, whereas the Hindi version of the film stars voices of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan as Mufasa and his son Aryan Khan as Simba. The story is centered on a young lion named Simba assuming his role as the king of the Pride Lands animal kingdom after his father, Mufasa, is murdered.
