Right on the heels of the too-cute-to-function trailer for Born to be Wild comes the teaser for Disney’s African Cats, in theaters on April 22, otherwise known as Earth Day. And, from the looks of it, the studio has concocted the perfect formula for getting audiences in the theater: Lion cubs + lion cubs mewing + lion cubs nuzzling + lion cubs doing pretty much anything (besides eating human flesh) = a mountain of cash. (Oh, Disney manipulation: Making us think Prince Charming is just seven dwarfs and one poisonous apple away for over 80 years!) See the trailer embedded below. Warning: You may be overcome with the sudden desire to adopt a little lion kitteh. Lion cubs: They’re just like Christian!*

*But probably not, because they most likely will eat you.
