In the new ad preview for Disney’s remake of The Lion King, we finally get to hear Beyoncé and Donald Glover. Together, they beautifully harmonize on “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.” Granted, this is just a small snippet of the song but it’s enough to get us counting down the days until the movie’s release.
The 30-second ad preview starts with their harmonies on the Elton John original. They continue through the quick clip while James Earl Jones’ (who reprises his role as Mufasa) famous quote breaks up the music. “Look at the stars… The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars. And so will I.”
The highly-anticipated CGI film is due out on July 19 and we’re learning more about the movie (and its soundtrack) little by little. So far, soundtrack details and its release date are still under wraps.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the remake includes a star-studded cast with Beyoncé playing Nala and Glover playing Simba. Chiwetel Ejiofor plays Scar, Seth Rogen takes on the role of Pumbaa and Billy Eichner plays Timon. Watch the official trailer below and find out more through the official Disney site for the film.
