If you thought the hyenas were creepy in the original Lion King film, now they have a cult-like chant that will make you want to hide under your covers. 'The Lion King Rises' trailer continues to add to the hype of the newest Batman installment, and makes one never want to watch the Lion King by themselves ever again.
