I cannot stay calm! Last night, Beyoncé and Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover (Community anyone?) premiered the iconic "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" song in the new The Lion King teaser. And... it was nothing short of angelic, tbh.
Simba—lion cub and crown prince of the Pride Lands—and Nala—Simba's love interest—are set to become icons again, when the computer-animated remake of Disney's original movie hits theatres July 19.
The rest of the cast includes Seth Rogen as Pumbaa (uh-mazing), Billy Eichner as Timon, John Oliver as Zazu, Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, and John Kani as Rafiki.
Recently, Disney has been going to town on live action remakes of their blockbuster classics. I'm talking about Aladdin (in theaters now), The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, and lots more. So, when Disney announced it was remaking The Lion King in September 2016, the world literally lost it.
Disney released the very first trailer back in November, and after one day, it broke the record for Disney's most-watched trailer!
But it's not just the musical legends of Queen Bey and Childish Gambino (though it's always a plus obvs), that makes this movie a must-watch, it's also the fact our beloved childhood characters are coming back to life.
There's something in my eye, OK?
