People Are Freaking Out Over What The “Lion King” Remake Looks Like Side-By-Side With The Original

A trailer for the new Lion King (AKA the “live-action” Lion King, despite the fact that it’s also animated) just dropped and people are freaking out.

Like, really freaking out.

Of course, it helps that this newest version of The Lion King has an all-star cast of celebs perfectly suited to their roles (especially Beyoncé).

Full-grown adults who grew up watching the original Lion King are fully prepared to brave theaters full of small children to watch the Disney masterpiece all over again.

And superfans are ready to do what it takes to remove any unlucky child who gets in between them and Simba.

Scar would be proud.
