It means “No worries!”
Unless you’ve been living under a rock these days, you’ve heard the news, you’ve seen the trailer and you are counting down the seconds until The Lion King remake hits theaters.
Now, let’s be real – recreating a Disney classic is no easy feat, especially one that took home the Oscar and still has us tearing up from what was undoubtedly the saddest death in movie history (we’ll never forgive you, Scar). But it only took one minute and 32 seconds for us to jump on board with this remake, and the numbers prove it:
To our 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! pic.twitter.com/iEPrmFKaEM

The star-studded cast doesn’t hurt either – Donald Glover as Simba, Queen B (Beyoncé, duh) as Nala, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and James Earl Jones back and better than ever, reprising his role as Mufasa.
Are we emotionally prepared to go through this again? Probably not. Will we still buy tickets on opening night? You bet. The new film isn’t out until July 2019, so for now, this quick teaser will have to do. And we won’t judge if you watch it a few dozen times either…
