Disney are hammering out the live-action remakes this year and we're absolutely lapping up the nostalgia with some of our childhood faves being brought back to life on the big screen... But it seems we aren't the only ones who (wait for it)... JUST CAN'T WAIT TO BE KIIIIING!

Re-igniting our love for one of the most popular animated movies of our lifetime (in fact the highest grossing traditionally animated film of all time if you wanna get really technical), Build-A-Bear Workshop has released an incredibly adorable Lion King range... Probably targeted at children, but hey, they can get to the back of the queue while I snap up mine.


The toys pay homage to the traditional animated classic, featuring all of our favourite characters with price points varying from £21.50 to £27. The collection debuts just weeks before the re-imagined Lion King hits cinemas (19th July - not long to go guys!) and includes characters Simba, Nala, Pumbaa and adult versions of Simba and Nala if you really wanna complete the circle of life.


If that wasn't enough to take you all the way back to being 5-years-old, there's also the signature Build-A-Bear option to add sound to your toy, including the famous 'Circle of Life' chant 'Nants' Ingonyama', 'I just can't wait to be King' or your own voice recording. My heart is melting just telling you about it...

The collection is available in stores nationwide now, but most importantly (not that you don't need a stuffed toy declaring your love for the Disney hit) - don't forget to book your tickets to The Lion King at ODEON using your TOTUM discount.
