Just a few weeks ago, the first full-length trailer for Christopher and Jonathan Nolan’s epic conclusion to their Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, took the Internet by storm. If you weren’t convinced of its upcoming awesomeness already, then I have faith that you were blown away by the trailer.
With the trailer in the hands of the viewing public, we can no doubt look forward to plenty of mash-ups and parodies in the coming months, ahead of The Dark Knight Rises’ release, and one in particular has been gaining deserved attention since it was put up just before the year ended a few days ago. Its name?
The Lion King Rises.
It takes the audio of The Dark Knight Rises’ trailer and puts it over the visuals of The Lion King, and it is uncanny how well it works. You can’t help but be entertained. The moment Rafiki utters the word, “Rise,” is simply perfect.
The Dark Knight Rises will be with us in cinemas on 20th July this year, which is a date I cannot wait for, as I’m sure you’ll all agree. Until then, here’s the great new mash-up trailer for your viewing pleasure, and you can catch up on all our coverage of everything Batman-related right here.
With thanks to THR for the heads up.
