Get a First-Look at The Lion King Live Action Main Characters!

HOLY WOW. The new The Lion King live-action trailer just dropped and we're getting a first look at the main characters. Are you even ready for this? I don't think you are.

It's been a long-time coming. I feel like I've waited half my life for this when reality it's only been a couple of years since we first heard the news about a live-action The Lion King. I wasn't worried. In fact, I was thrilled because Jon Favreau, the genius behind bringing The Jungle Book live-action to the big screen, is the director of Disney's new live-action The Lion King. If we're being honest with ourselves, The Jungle Book was an absolute masterpiece.

As far as The Lion King goes. It has a special place in my Disney-loving heart. The nostalgia of the music gets me every single time. Plus, it's my husband and mother-in-law's favorite Disney movie which I love. We have every intention on taking her to the theater to see this film brought to life once again.
