THE LION KING RISES: (Original) Dark Knight Rises Trailer Parody

by Brad Hansen • 3,754,873 views

I synced the audio of the new Dark Knight Rises full trailer with the visuals of The Lion King. Share it if you dig it! Christopher Nolan did, he thought it was "pretty epic" in an Entertainment...

Seeing this made me realize how similar Simba and Bruce Wayne's stories are. Both born into well off/highly received families, suffered a tragic parental loss as a child, internalized that pain and left his homeland/city, lived like paupers and learned valuable life lessons, returned to their homeland/city only to find out things have gotten worse and are in need of help from the gothams/the jungles main son/king as they are referenced, resulting in them defeating evil threats and becoming heroes. Sooo Similar. Oh yeah, Both Simba and Bruce Wayne ultimately hook up with a catwoman... MEOW! Now I'm wondering, Is there a mashup of Hercules and Man of Steel?
the Lion king story was heavily influenced by hamlet.or a least the simba story.
It's weird how well the voices match
Zazoos voice is jokes
This could not have been edited more perfectly.
this is my 3rd comment on this video i have watched it and showed it, to many of my friends, it is totally, totally fucking Epic. 
Thanks for spreading the word! Glad you enjoyed it.
It's almost unnerving how well Catwoman's voice suits Nala
I thought it was the weakest part of the video.
Wait................so who does Morgan Freeman play??
Like the Toy Story one. Both hilarious and perfect.
The part when scar talks, the voice matches the movement of his lips perfectly
A like, favorite, and subscribe, just doesn't cut it.  I feel like I'm breaking the law watching this for free.
That was satisfying to me in ways that you couldn't possibly begin to understand. Well maybe you could, I won't give you guys no credit at all. But god DAMN that was satisfying, I watched it like 7 times.
DAMN!! that was so awesome, it made my frickin hair stand!!!
This video is so bad ass I came back 2 years later to watch it again!!! Awesome childhood movie! Batman and simba FTW!
You crazy bastard! This is amazing.

I'd watch that.
Bane is even more intimidating as a Lion since you can actually see his face.
Great job on this vid. Love your work and edits. 
Masterful editing. Fincher, Scorcese, and Nolan can all learn something from this video. ;)
A goddamn genius has made it
"And i havent" than he flies away LOL
Good the lion king was made for this editing
I just realized I never actually watched The Lion King. Now I really want to.
"YOU have my permission to die"  that was perfect
EPIC all i have to say
+Micheal Miears Indeed, loved the Lion King.
Best trailer ever brought. Nice job.
I may be nitpicking here, but didn't it come out in Spring '94?
Haha I love it! Scar saying Banes line was perfect. Great job.

I try to refrain from making over the top statements but, this might be the greatest parody trailer of all time.

Seriously... Watch this. Internet Ingenuity at its best!!  The Dark Knight Rises trailer re-done to the visuals of the Lion King.  Even Christopher Nolan was impressed by this, calling it "Epic".  It's worth the 2 minutes... Enjoy and share it! This deserves to be seen...

Both had a traumatic event happen to them in their childhood. Both have a famous reputation. Both have advisors with British accents.
This was so incredibly awesome! Keep on doing such great work!
