A brand new trailer for the new adaptation of The Lion King has landed...

The problem with some remakes of iconic films is that they can stray from the beloved original's plotline. Thankfully, that doesn't look to be the case with the 2019 version of The Lion King. 

The teaser trailer was released last year and now the first full trailer for the highly anticipated film has landed and we can't stop watching it. Directed by Jon Favreau, the "live action" film stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala and James Earl Jones reprising his role as the inimitable Mufasa. 

A debate is raging on the internet as to whether or not the film is actually "live action" or an update on the animated original but honestly, we don't really care — the visuals look insanely good and we've already got Hakuna Matata in our heads on repeat. 

See it below...

Now, find out who has been cast as Princess Ariel in the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.
