The live-action “Lion King” doesn’t hit theaters for well over a year but the excitement is already starting to build. We previously reported that Beyoncé would be voicing the role of Nala in the remake. Today, we are hearing that Elton John will also be returning to work on a new closing song for the movie with Beyoncé and theater legend, Tim Rice.
Elton John told the “The Sun:”
“They need to have a new end credits song. There’s going to be four of our songs in the film, from the original: Can You Feel The Love Tonight? Hakuna Matata, I Just Can’t Wait To Be King and Circle of Life. And then there will be an end, closing song, and we’ve been speaking to Beyonce’s people and hopefully Tim and I and her can cook up something.”
Elton John’s “The Lion King” soundtrack is arguably one of the most popular movie soundtracks of all time. I’m super excited to see what he, Beyoncé, and Tim Rice come up with for the live-action remake of the iconic movie.
The live-action version of “The Lion King” arrives in theaters July 19, 2019.
