Disney has released its first teaser featuring The Lion King’s iconic song 'Hakuna Matata', allowing fans to hear a snippet of the remake for the first time.

The iconic, classic song from the original 1994 film is shown reprised in 2019 in a new behind-the-scenes clip by Disney.

In the clip, you can see the voices of Timon & Pumba (Seth Rogan & Billy Eichner) recording the song in studio.

The hit music was written by Sir Elton John, while Tim Rice provided the lyrics after finding the "no worries" term in a Swahili phrasebook.

'Hakuna Matata’s' reboot sounds relatively the same, but with modern sound polishing and different singers.
