The Lion King is about to take over the box office — and has already dominated the Internet.
The highly-anticipated live-action remake of the 1994 classic film is in theaters next Friday and Disney hasn’t held back in sharing some of the more iconic clips from the movie.

The film also stars Shahadi Wright Joseph as Young Nala), JD McCrary as Young SImba, Florence Kasumba Shenzi the hyena, Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, John Oliver as Zazu, Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari and Eric André as Azizi — the other hyenas.
The Lion King is expected to be the movie of the summer after Aladdin opened to higher opening weekend numbers than expected.
Aladdin clocked in with a $113 million opening weekend, bumping up the projections for the highly-anticipated Lion King that also stars James Earl Jones as Mufasa.
Projections for The Lion King now have it at a $180-$200 million debut over the July 19 weekend, according to Box Office magazine.
In early April, and in honor of 100 days until the movie is set to hit theaters, Disney dropped its first full-length trailer that made fans of the original animated classic emotional.
