'The Lion King' official trailer is finally here and it will give you all the 'Hakuna Matata' feels

The official full-length trailer for "The Lion King," re-imagined in live-action, was released Wednesday morning and it will give you all the "Hakuna Matata" feels.

The trailer opens with Simba's uncle, Scar, and transitions to James Earl Jones as Mufasa telling Simba about what it's like to be king. All of your favorite characters of the Disney hit are back in a live-action version and there's no doubt the movie will break records for Disney.

The caption of the video reads: "Disney's The Lion King opens in theaters July 19, 2019. Watch the new trailer now. Director Jon Favreau’s all-new 'The Lion King' journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother — and former heir to the throne — has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon. Utilizing pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way, Disney’s 'The Lion King' roars into theaters on July 19, 2019."
