We know you’re eating…watch the new trailer for Disney’s The Lion King anyway

Okay, normally I would snarl at anyone releasing a trailer on Thanksgiving, but today I’m going to table that. (Haha, table. Shut up. I’m full of food. The jokes are what they are today.) Disney just released the trailer for The Lion King and I’m sobbing at my desk. It’s beautiful! I was lucky enough to visit the “set,” and it was pretty darn incredible. So, since I need to get back to eating right now, I’ll just leave this here. If you’re not dying of cute and awe, you are dead inside.

Jon Favreau directs The Lion King and stars include Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, reprising the role he made famous in the 1994 animated classic, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, JD McCrary as young Simba, Shahadi Wright Joseph as young Nala, John Kani as Rafiki, John Oliver as Zazu, Seth Rogan as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.

The Lion King will hit theaters on July 19, 2019.
