If you watched The Lion King as a kid, the fight scene at the end is probably etched into your memory. But what if this animated battle were reenacted by…kittens?

YouTube user Pasdidée got two kittens to duke it out in this cute-yet-upsetting recreation of the iconic scene, complete with slow-motion paw slaps. Compared with a clip from the original movie, it’s surprisingly accurate.

When he’s not playing Simba, Marcel the ginger kitten looks like this. Way too cute!
