The cast for the new The Lion King animated movie was announced — and we’re more pumped for the 2019 remake than we’ve ever been before.

Disney revealed Wednesday afternoon the entire cast list on social media, including actor, musician, and producer Donald Glover as Simba and the queen Beyoncé Knowles-Carter herself as Nala.

If that wasn’t enough to get an audience in the theaters, James Earl Jones will be reprising his role from the 1994 original as Mufasa. The cast also includes Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, John Oliver as Zazu, Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, and Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner as Pumbaa and Timon.

“It is a director’s dream to assemble a talented team like this to bring this classic story to life,” director Jon Favreau said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly.
