OMG it’s finally here!
The first trailer for the live-action adaptation of ‘The Lion King and it has us HYPED – with good reason.
Not only does it look absurdly realistic (that ‘Circle of Life’ scene gave us chills), it also features a star-studded cast in Donald Glover (Simba), Beyonce (Nala) and more.
Seeing as their childhoods basically just came to life, netizens naturally went nuts and gave some hilariously relatable reactions.
It was bad enough when it was animated

TBH, we don’t really care if it’s literally a rehash
