Beyoncé Sings Beloved Song in New "Lion King" Movie

Beyoncé will sing “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?” in the new live-action remake of  “The Lion King”. 

First recorded by Elton John in 1993, the famous song is getting re-recorded by one of the most influential music stars of this generation.

Comedian and actor, Billy Eichner (who plays Timon in the movie), confirmed Queen B’s musical contribution to the film. He also revealed details of how the song will be played on a recent episode of “Watch What Happens Live” on Bravo.

“Timon and Pumbaa start singing ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight?’ and then it segues into Beyoncé and Donald Glover singing it,” Eichner said.

Beyoncé will be taking on the role of Nala with her co-star/co-singer, David Glover, by her side in the role of Simba.

The remake of “The Lion King” will be directed by Jon Favreau. Favreau also directed “The Jungle Book” and the upcoming Star Wars TV series, “The Mandalorian”.

Other voice actors featured in the upcoming movie include James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, John Kani as Rafiki, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, John Oliver as Zazu, Eric Andre as Azizi, Florence Kasumba as Shenzi, and Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari.

“The Lion King” premieres in theaters on Friday, July 19th, 2019.
