Most of us can cast our minds back to the innocence of childhood. Even more of us can probably remember when that innocence was shattered, when we fell hopelessly in love/lust with a cartoon character.

This is a safe, non-judgemental space to air our past and present animated crushes, and it's time we curated a list of Twitter's Top 20 cartoon heart-throbs.

From obvious choices like General Li Shang, Prince Eric and Danny Phantom to more obscure preferences (*cough* Shrek *cough*)…this list will give you a good laugh, if nothing else. Try to keep your heartrate steady.

Brand new posters for Disney's live-action The Lion King have been released, building the anticipation even further for the film's release in just 49 days.

The images depict all of the beloved main characters with credits to their voice actors, and we can't contain our excitement.

Young Simba and young Nala, played by JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph are looking especially adorable, not to mention Billy Eichner as the iconic comedic character Timon.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter was noticeably absent from The Lion King official trailers, so we're especially happy to get a closer look of what Nala looks like.

The 37-year-old singer stars alongside Donald Glover, who plays the lead role of Simba, and recorded a duet of Can You Feel The Love Tonight? with the musical actor.

During an appearance on Crooked Media's Keep It podcast, Billy Eichner teased Beyoncé's performance, saying:

"She’s definitely in the movie because I’ve seen a rough cut. And I’ve heard her sing Can You Feel the Love Tonight? with Donald Glover and I’m telling you, it’s f**cking good."

The new film uses cutting-edge technology to create the live-action characters, which look incredibly life-like. 

The highly-anticipated movie is directed by Jon Favreau with a script from Jeff Nathanson, who previously wrote Catch Me If You Can starring Leonardo DiCaprio for Steven Spielberg. 

Opening in cinemas on July 19, the cast is also led by James Earl Jones as the original Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogan voicing Pumpaa and John Oliver as Zazu.

The original 1994 animated film was a box office smash, with an initial worldwide gross of 766 million dollars.

Those 50 days of waiting can't go by quick enough. The countdown for The Circle of Life is ON.

Disney's live-action reboot of The Lion King may well break box office records, judging by the insane level of excitement built up around it.

The flick nailed an all-star cast featuring the original Mufasa himself (James Earl Jones), Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, Donald Glover (AKA Childish Gambino), Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Oliver, John Kani, Eric Andre, Keegan Michael-Key and…

Who are we forgetting?

Oh yes… BEYONCÉ KNOWLES-CARTER as Nala. We're slain.

Naturally, there's an ecstatic amount of nostalgia, especially from us 90s kids out there. Thankfully, during last night's Oscars ceremony, Disney released an extended The Lion King trailer and we died.

How can we possibly wait until July 2019 to see Jon Favreau's epic Pride Lands tale, based on Shakespeare's Hamlet?

More live-action reboots are on the way, following the success of The Jungle Book, which boasts the same director as The Lion King. Dumbo, directed by Tim Burton will arrive in theatres this March, followed by Guy Ritchie's Aladdin in May.

Just like The Jungle Book, Favreau's Lion King uses CGI to bring an entirely animal cast to life in an incredibly realistic-looking format.

Donald Glover, This Is America musical legend, stars as Simba, the orphaned lion cub who returns to Pride Rock to take his place as king.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter plays Simba's love interest, Nala, while Chiwetel Ejiofor plays the villainous scar. Seth Rogen and Billy Eicher were cast as Pumbaa and Timon, Simba's beloved comic relief companions

We honestly won't be able to see this in cinema, we'd have to be restrained due to the sheer excitement of it all. Cannot cope.
