We’ve finally come full circle… of life.
Disney released a teaser trailer for the remake back in November that broke the record for Disney’s most-watched trailer in a day.
Within the first 24 hours the teaser accumulated an astounding 224.6 million views globally, not that any of us were really that shocked.
