Dumbo might not have gotten great reception and Aladdin isn’t looking any better, but the upcoming live-action adaptation of The Lion King is one people seem genuinely excited about, especially coming from director Jon Favreau. Three years ago, Favreau saw massive commercial and critical success with the similarly animal-themed 2016 live-action remake of The Jungle Book.

The Lion King features the voices of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, Keegan-Michael Key, Beyoncé, John Kani, and James Earl Jones. It is set to hit theaters July 19th.
