The Full-Length ‘Lion King’ Trailer Gives Fans A Peek At That Iconic "Hakuna Matata" Scene

Disney just dropped in to remind us that they own our wallets this year. Just a few weeks after the Aladdin trailer dropped and the Dumbo live-action remake hit theaters, Disney has released the first official full-length trailer for The Lion King coming out this July. And let me tell ya, my Disney-loving a** cried the entire way through the full-length Lion King trailer.

This trailer is giving us everything, people. It’s giving us first looks at a longer list of characters. It’s giving us the first clips of Chiwetel Ejiofor voicing Scar. It’s giving us the first clips of James Earl Jones voicing Mufasa again!! It’s giving us the first look at baby and grown Simba and Nala (although it unfortunately is not giving us Beyoncé or Donald Glover’s voices yet). And on top of all of this amazingness (don’t doubt that hearing Jones as Mufasa again will make you emotional), the first look at the iconic Timon and Pumbaa has finally arrived.

Voiced by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen, Timon and Pumbaa make their long-awaited debut in the form of the iconic "Hakuna Matata" scene where Simba grows from lion cub to fully grown in one shot.

The internet: When will Disney stop making live-action remakes?! Give us something original!!

Disney: Asante. Sana. Squash. Banana.

The internet: Powerful stuff.

JUST LOOK AT THIS TRAILER IN ALL OF ITS GLORY.

The trailer shows fans Scar for the first time in all of his insidious glory, and it also shows a clip of the stampede scene (mercifully, Mufasa is not shown), as well as the scene where Mufasa and Simba sit at the very top of Pride Rock and Mufasa tells Simba that everything the light touches is their kingdom.

As for Timon and Pumbaa, there’s the "Hakuna Matata" scene, and then at the very end, there’s a clip of Timon and Pumbaa bopping around and singing "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."

Of course, Twitter is excited as hell for this entire trailer, but Timon and Pumbaa’s debut has people especially excited.
