The trailer begins with Simba and Nara treading into Uncle Scar’s region and Scar looks upon them. It says ‘Life is not fair while some are born to feast, others spend their lives in the dark begging for scraps.’ Scar tries to attack Simba with his troupe hyenas behind him. Mufasa teaches Simba the laws of the jungle and the true nature of the things while magnificent species appear close to him.
In the background, Mufasa voice plays in the background, “While others search for what they can take, a true king searches for what he can give.”
