20 'The Lion King' Quotes That Prove It's the Best Disney Movie

Disney's The Lion King is the most recent animated film to get the live-action treatment.

At first, we were a bit hesitant. But then when we heard Beyoncé and Donald Glover were involved, all our worries were cast aside. The rest of the cast taking on these iconic roles is also incredibly talented, but put Queen Bey in anything, and we'll watch it. (Speaking of, we can't wait for Homecoming to make its way to Netflix.)

Other than the incredible list of actors who are involved in this flick, there are so many reasons to be excited for this live-action remake. We know many are often worried these remakes will tarnish the original's image, but we couldn't disagree more. These live-actions breathe new life into beloved classics.

With a movie like The Lion King being given this treatment, it also won't stray too far from what we've already seen on screen, seeing as getting real animals to portray these characters wouldn't really work out all too well for anyone involved.

To celebrate the release of the first full-length live-action trailer, we've rounded up some quotes from The Lion King that prove it really is one of the best Disney movies of all time.

Watch the trailer below, then find a quote that inspires you to unleash your inner lion!
