‘The Lion King’ trailer is here and AAAHHHHH we can’t wait to see it in live-action

After the long wait, we finally have our first look for the upcoming live-action adaptation of The Lion King, one of the Disney animated classics that truly made an impact in our lives and still makes us cry every time we watch it.

The cast of The Lion King surely won’t disappoint, especially when you have someone as legendary as James Earl Jones, Beyoncé who have proven us many times how badass she is, and the talented Donald Glover who will play Simba.

No one is ever prepared for what the remake will make us feel, but one thing is for sure—we can’t wait to see the king!

People online couldn’t contain their excitement but we all have to wait until July 19 to see the film.

The new trailer compared to the same iconic scenes from the 1994 original film is giving us all the feels!

Some who weren’t even interested in the remake changed their minds the moment they saw the teaser trailer and heard James Earl Jones’ voice as Mufasa. *GOOSEBUMPS*

Seeing how cute lil Simba is makes us wanna cry, tbh.

But realizing we’ll witness Scar accomplish his evil plans again…boy, this is gonna hurt like hell but we all know we’re ready for it anyway.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Kids who haven’t seen the 1994 animated film have no idea what they are signing up for.

I mean, we’re excited and all, but we might need a support group to get through the trauma of reliving some of the heartbreaking scenes in The Lion King.

Beyoncé hive hearing their Queen B would probably be like:

Us who have watched the original The Lion King as kids and grew up to witness its live-action adaptation will join kids of today who probably have no idea how this Disney movie changed our lives.

We can’t wait to scream “AAAHHHH SAVENYAAAAA ~” (even though it’s actually “Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba Sithi uhm ingonyama” and we grew up having our own lyrics) as the Circle of Life starts playing when Rafiki introduces our new king!
