It ain't no passing craze.

The full trailer for Disney's live-action remake of The Lion King is here, and the nostalgia is very real.

Walt Disney Studios shared the 1.49 clip on Twitter with the caption: "In 100 days, the king arrives. Watch the brand new trailer for #TheLionKing now."

Just yes.

While most of the footage in the trailer has been recycled from the first offering back in November, there's a few new snippets - including the talking animals.

Set for release on the 19th July, Disney's Lion King has attracted an all-star cast including Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce (major) as Nala, Seth Rogen as Pumba, and Billy Eichner as Timon.

As in the first trailer, we see the opening scenes of the story, where Rafiki (John Kani) presents Simba (Donald Glover) to the Pride Lands. The clip is narrated by James Earl Jones, who is reprising his original role of Mufasa.

Elton John and Tim Rice will also return to remaster the original music from the 1994 film. The remake is set to be released next summer. Word on the street is that Beyonce and Elton are teaming up for the end credits.

As you can imagine, the trailer has social media (and GLAMOUR HQ) in a full-on frenzy over the upcoming release.

I’m mentally unprepared to see Mufasa die again. I don’t think I can get over the loss for the second time 😫 #TheLionKing2019 #LionKingTrailer
