Disney drop official trailer for The Lion King live-action remake and it’s everything you hoped it would be

Be warned, if you’re still not over the trauma that the original Lion King dealt you, you’re not going to be able to deal with this trailer.

15 seconds in and I was a complete mess, mainly owing to that goddam soundtrack in the background.

Similar to the film’s previous teaser trailer, the official trailer recreates a lot of from the original underpinned by James Earl Jones’ narration.

But here we get our first glimpse of Scar, Nala and Zazu but most importantly, we’re treated to a super brief rendition of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and Timon and Pumba are everything I hope they would be and more.

I smell the Box Office burning up.
