The Lion King Rises

No matter what your stance on the debacle over the seemingly incomprehensible voice of Tom Hardy playing Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, we can all pretty much agree that the second trailer for Christopher Nolan's anticipated conclusion still delivered what audiences wanted. Now that trailer comes to us in a whole new light as Mashable has uncovered a rather awesome trailer mash-up from YouTube user MovieMaestroTen (via SlashFilm) that takes the audio from The Dark Knight Rises trailer and places it over perfectly edited footage from The Lion King to make Disney's epic, The Lion King Rises. Watch below!

Eight years after The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to the limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent.

The Dark Knight Rises is once again directed by Oscar nominated British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight and Inception previously. The script was co-written by Christopher & Jonathan Nolan (The Prestige, The Dark Knight), from a story by Chris Nolan & David S. Goyer (of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight). Warner Bros is bringing The Dark Knight Rises to regular and IMAX theaters everywhere July 20th, 2012 next summer. The Legend Ends…

"Seemingly incomprehensible"?! Come on! It's not that bad

Pebble on Jan 3, 2012


I don't think it's all that bad, but there's a lot of complaints out there that people couldn't understand him at all. That's all I was saying.

Is it just me or the sound in this is way better than it was on DKR trailer? I finally understood everything! This was great.i love the lion king!

I was thinking the same thing...weird. Maybe it was being able to see mouths move (even though they were cartoon mouths) that helped in the case of Bane lines...

I thought the exact same thing! So strange.  Really well done!

I don't know, this looks a bit too dark for disney... why would they even release something like this for kids?? 

kevinoshea on Jan 3, 2012


that just how disney is. Disney teaches children that if you want to get rid of the bad guy or villain, you have to kill them or do something to make this die. Or they try to introduce bad habits to children at young ages without them realizing it, like in Dumbo when he gets drunk and hallucinates haha

Or in Pinnochio with all of that underage drinking.
