This comes as no surprise with the line up of celebs set to star in the film. The remake stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce as Nala, Seth Rogan as Pumba, Billy Eichner as Timon, John Oliver as Zazu and John Kani as Rafiki.
Disney is bringing our fantasies to life returning James Earl Jones as the voice of Mufasa, which was his role in the original film.
"To the entire pride: Thank you for helping the teaser trailer for #TheLionKing become the most viewed Disney trailer debut ever as it reached a record breaking 224.6 million global views in 24 hours!" Disney tweeted.
This isn’t the first live action remake in the works from Disney. Childhood favourites Dumbo, Aladdin and Mulan are also making their way to the big screen.
You can check out the incred trailer above! We are SO. EXCITED.
