“Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase…” A popular 1994 animated movie is making its way back to the big screen as a live-action remake.

Disney released a new trailer for the Lion King, showing a live-action look at the adventures of Simba and Nala.

The trailer is the first time we hear the voices of the impressive cast in their respective roles: Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, Seth Rogan as Pumbaa, Billy Eichner as Timon, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, John Oliver as Zazu, and James Earl Jones, once again voicing his 1994 character, Mufasa.

The Lion King will hit theaters on July 19, 2019.
