For many people, the Lion King is a iconic movie and a big part of their childhood. Many of us still remember the fateful moment that Simba told his dad to get up so they could go home, only to realize that his dad was never getting up again. So, when the new 2019 Live Action Remake of the Lion King was announced, it should have been expected that people would be excited about it. So excited, in fact, that the teaser trailer got over 224 million views within the first day.

While there are many people excited to see baby Simba in live-action, or to hear Beyonce as Nala there are also many people less excited for the remake, with headlines such as ‘The Old Lion King Animation is Better” and many people writing about it on twitter. While some tweets write things such as, “I have such mixed feelings about The Lion King remake. My favourite film in the entire world and I’m so concerned the new version is absolutely awful.”, there are also many that say “The Lion King 2019 teaser trailer is out and I can’t wait to cry my lungs out next July.” Whether you love or hate The Lion King it’s a very popular topic, and many of us who are excited by it have already marked our calendar for July 19,2019.
