So, is this what they meant when they sang about the "Circle of Life?"

All that is old will be made new and ironically hilarious again, as in this YouTube clip "The Lion King Rises" which, you guessed it, seamlessly blends audio of the "Dark Knight Rises" trailer with Disney's 1994 classic "The Lion King."

Michael Caine's Alfred delivers his sad lament via the colorful Hornbill Zazu, Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle explains her intentions for aggressive wealth redistribution through the maw of Nala, and, of course, the muffled musings of Bane are now embodied by the evil lion Scar.

This is all the brainchild of the talented editor Brad Hansen, who has a thing for felines as evidenced by his hilarious short film "Perv: The Cat." With a great sense of comic timing, it's not hard to imagine Hansen one day making a movie popular enough to be mashed-up with Batman.

As Bane would say, "Oh aye jusssft cabt bwatche chubee ching."
