It's gonna be the mane event, like no movie before... we're talking about
Lion King remake, of course.
The first full-length trailer for the film, which is set for release on July 19, dropped Wednesday on YouTube. It follows a teaser trailer released in November, which focused mainly on baby Simba.
This time we get to see clips from throughout the film, with epic landscapes and some wimoweh-ing from Timon and Pumba that'll have you singing The Lion Sleeps Tonight for the next three weeks.
The Lion King's CGI remake comes hot on the heels of Disney's Dumbo remake and will be closely pipped to the post by its Aladdin remake due out in May. In the meantime, you can watch the full trailer below and spend the rest of the day basking in the gentle glow of '90s nostalgia.
