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.
