IT'S THE CIRCLE OF LIFE.

Welcome to #TrailerChest, where we're taking a sneak peek at the brand new trailer for THE LION KING!!!!!!!

100 days from today (10 April), the world will bear witness to a live-action remake of perhaps the most beloved Disney film in history.

On Wednesday, Disney dropped the very first trailer for the star-studded remake of The Lion King, and it hits all the right notes. We see Chiwetel Ejiofor scaring us all as Scar, we hear the legendary voice of James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa, and we even get a brief look at Timon and Pumba'a.

Plot's it all about? It's The Lion King, mate. It's The Lion King only it's real. With real (CGI) lions, meerkats, hyenas and warthogs.

Starring: DONALD GLOVER. BEYONCÉ. CHIWETEL EJIOFOR. JAMES EARL JONES. ALFRE WOODARD. SETH ROGEN. JOHN OLIVER. BILLY EICHNER. KEEGAN MICHAEL KEY.
