The Lion King's new trailer is finally out and people can't get enough of it...

It seems that we're in for an exciting line-up of new film releases for 2019 and one of the most anticipated is the live-action remake of The Lion King.  

Details for the Disney classic were first revealed last year after Beyoncé was confirmed to join the all-star cast alongside Donald Glover, Seth Rogan, James Earl Jones and Alfre Woodard.

Now over the weekend, the first teaser trailer for the upcoming film was released and it looks so good. Replicating the scenes from the much-loved 1994 animated film, Simba is looking cuter than ever, earning the trailer 224.6 million views worldwide in just a day. 

The trailer made history as it was the most-watched trailer in 24 hours in Disney history, and fell in the number two spot across all studios behind Avengers: Infinity War, which received 238 million views. 

In case you haven't seen the trailer yet, or you just want to watch it again (no judgement), see it above..
