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.

The cast for The Lion King live action movie is incredible. Teaser trailer is out now too. #TheLionKing pic.twitter.com/A2r4mabwW3

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.

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*


Me last year: “I have no interest in a live action lion king

Me: “I can’t believe Disney is gonna make The Lion King as a live action. they should leave classics alone. How. Dare. They.”

Disney: *releases trailer*

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.

I'm going to see The Lion King with a support group.

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!

Joking aside, here’s what the Lion King “Circle of Life” song translates to. pic.twitter.com/SOO38AdFvi
