Due to be released next month on the 19th of July, Nala is voiced by Beyoncé whilst Glover has taken on the role of Simba, two icons playing two icons.
Beyoncé and Donald Glover’s rendition of the classic Can You Feel The Love Tonight is a spine-tingling little piece of nostalgia.
Elton John has been working on the soundtrack for the film once again, alongside the English lyricist and longtime friend Tim Rice who collaborated on the original 1994 Disney classic.
The live action remake will feature four classic songs including Can You Feel The Love Tonight, Hakuna Matata, I Just Can’t Wait To Be King and Circle of Life alongside some fresh new tunes. It also has some other big voice actors on board, with Billy Eichner playing Timon, Seth Rogen playing Pumbaa, Eric Andre as Azizi and John Oliver as Zazu.
Watch the trailer below.
The original Lion King film was released in 1994, making it a clean 25 years between the classic and the remake. Disney has been on somewhat of a live action remake stream lately, also undertaking new versions of The Jungle Book, Dumbo, and more.
