Stop everything, because the first trailer for the live-action remake of The Lion King was recently released, and it is EPIC.
If you haven't been keeping up with your Disney remakes, the movie stars Donald Glover as Simba and Beyoncé as Nala.

Baby Simba is so. freaking. cute. in this trailer, and of course, since the teaser's release, Twitter has been losing it's mind and has zero chill over the situation:

New Lion King trailer is amazing. I’m billing @Disney for the therapy I’m going to need. As if watching a cartoon Musfasa dying wasn’t traumatic enough, now I can see the light drain from his eyes in IMAX 3D. #TheLionKing— Jack Whitehall (@jackwhitehall) November 23, 2018
So if you're as amped for this movie as Twitter is, you can watch the trailer here:
