Beyoncé definitely sounds as if she’s perfect for the role of Nala.

If you’re not excited for the live action remake of The Lion King, then we don’t know what to tell you.

We already know the iconic story, but with a cast of Donald Glover, Beyoncé, Chiwetel Ejiofor, James Earl Jones, Seth Rogen, John Oliver, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner and Keegan Michael Key, we just know for a fact this is going to be amazing.

Add that to the fact that it’s being directed by Jon Favreau, who is famous for directing and producing many of the MCU’s best films, and you’ve a recipe for something special.

And if you’re somehow still not excited, then maybe this latest trailer will do the trick.

We finally hear Beyoncé as Nala, and see clips from some of the most iconic scenes from the original movie.

As well as that, we hear Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner as Timon and Pumba. We just can’t wait for their rendition of Hakuna Matata.

Take a look:
