"Happy Birthday, America!" shares Billy Eichner, along with the 30-second teaser.

Billy Eichner is giving America one helluva pre-birthday gift: a new "Lion King" promo.

Eichner, who voices Timon in the upcoming live-action remake of Disney's 1994 animated film, just shared a new teaser on Twitter, noting that it would be aired on television starting July 4.

"Happy Birthday, America!"

In the 30-second clip above, a young and awestruck Simba (voiced by JD McCrary) asks Timon and Pumbaa (voiced by Seth Rogen), "You live here?"

"Well, we live wherever we want," the meerkat responds, as the warthog adds, "We do as we please!"

"If you wanna live with us, you have to eat like us," Timon tells Simba in the next scene, as the lion cub watches the fearless duo devour some "local" cuisine.

Later, an older Simba (voiced by Donald Glover), Nala (voiced by Beyonce) and their unconventional family are faced with the daunting task of "getting past the slobbering guards," which come in the form of three very hungry hyenas.

"All we need to do is find something that's, like, big...and juicy..." Pumbaa trails off, as he quickly notices that all eyes are on him -- the warthog.

"Why's everyone looking at me?" he asks cautiously before the movie's iconic track, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," begins to play in the background.

"The Lion King" hits theaters July 19.
