The live action of “The Lion King” is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. With the release scheduled for July 18th, fans are yet to watch a trailer that shows Beyoncé’s participation in it as the lioness Nala.
However, people involved in the project is giving a taste of what is to come! Billy Eichner, who acts as Timon, says he saw a rough scene with the pop star and was impressed.
Donald Glover – aka Childish Gambino – plays Simba, Nala’s romantic partner. “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” is a classic recorded by Elton John for the 1994 version of the movie.
“And I’ve heard her sing ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight?’ with Donald Glover and I’m telling you, it’s f—ing good”, he said to Ira Madison III on Crooked Media’s Keep It podcast. “And that was never my favorite song to be totally honest… I liked it when Elton John sang it. I love Elton John. I don’t want to give too much away about that, they do not want us talking about it. I will just say that honestly, it made me cry, and I was not expecting that”.
