Disney has released a new trailer for The Lion King which gives fans their first glimpse of villain Scar.

The live-action retelling of the tale - starring Donald Glover as Simba and Beyoncé as Nala and directed by Jon Favreau - is due to be released in July.

The teaser opens with Simba and Nala wandering into a boneyard. Scar (Chiwetel Ejiofor) confronts the cubs and says: "Life's not fair is it my little friend?

"While some are born to feast, others spend their lives in the dark. Begging for scraps."

Simba's father Mufasa (James Earl Jones) is seen showing his son his kingdom.

Earl Jones, who also voiced Mufasa in the 1994 Disney classic, says: "Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance.

"While others search for what they can take, a true king searches for what he can give.

"You must take your place in the circle of life."

The trailer also shows part of the stampede which leads to Mustafa losing his life, and shows Scar snarling at Simba to run away and never return.
