There’s a new poster for Disney’s The Lion King and it’s absolutely everything you want it to be. Even though Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s oh-so-intimate performance may have dominated the 2019 Oscars coverage, when Disney dropped its new teaser for The Lion King during the Oscar broadcast, fans took notice.

Along with the new teaser, Disney also posted a sneak peek of the reminiscently-retro poster. The silhouetted scene featuring Simba and Mufasa side-by-side is something that fans of the original film remember well.

Following Disney’s initial poster post, plenty of Twitter users chimed in. One mama-to-be took note of the movie’s highly-anticipated release date this summer: “My due date is this day but ima skip that and go to my favorite movie.”

Another fan noted its timing during the Academy Awards:

The live-action remake of the Disney classic features an all-star cast, including Beyoncé, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, James Earl Jones, Donald Glover, Keegan-Michael Key, Billy Eichner, Alfre Woodard and John Oliver. Look for The Lion King in theaters on Jul. 19.
