Per Disney’s official press release:

Disney’s The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book), journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Of course, the BeyHive was awaiting one particular soundbite and that was from Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter herself.

On the early evening of June 3, it finally happened.

In a new sneak peek, Adult Nala (Knowles-Carter) tries to convince Adult Simba (Donald Glover) to finally take his place as the one true king.

When Beyoncé says “come home,” you come home.

Of course, I’ll be perched in the seat, waiting for Bey to say “you touched my cub?!” in the film. Hey...it’s Disney. Dreams can come true, right? Right?!

Disney’s The Lion King pounces into theaters on July 19.
