Disney fans rejoice! The studio officially released the first trailer for the new The Lion King on November 22nd, and it genuinely looks epic. (For those who aren’t aware, Disney is remaking the 1994 animated classic in hyper-realistic 3D—set to come out in 2019 and voiced by the likes of Donald Glover, Billy Eichner, and Beyoncé).
The minute-and-a-half-long teaser shows the sun rising over Pride Rock, overlaid with the voice of Mufasa sagely saying, “A king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, the sun will set on my time here…and will rise with you as the new king.” It then reveals a shot of 3D baby Simba..and yes, we’re crying.
And while Twitter is already obsessed with the teaser, many users are making the exact same comment. As in, they don’t want to see Mufasa die in 3D.
We get it. We, too, are dreading that moment. But we can get through this together, guys (and we’ll bring extra tissues).
