Since the trailer dropped #LionKing has been at the top of the trends on Twitter;
Dr John Kani says his daughter asked why he didn’t take a pic with Beyonce when they were recording for Lion King. His reply was, “she didn’t ask for it”. Respect

Crazy!!! Look at the difference between the original 1994 Lion King and this one coming in 2019. We’ve come a long way with animations and graphics. Too bad Mufasa still drops. 😩 pic.twitter.com/cjhzk0Xh15

The Lion King is cute and all but there is no release that will excite me more than G.O.T

I think Disney should have cast Migos as the three Hyenas in ‘The Lion King’ movie. pic.twitter.com/4YgmEFIUIp
