Can you feel the excitement?
Another trailer for The Lion King has been released, this time featuring Beyoncé and Donald Glover’s duet of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” their remake of Elton John’s classic ballad from the original 1994 film.
“Can you feel the love tonight / The peace the evening brings / The world for once in perfect harmony / With all its living things,” they sing in the 30-second clip.
Queen Bey voices Nala and Glover takes on the role of Simba in Jon Favreau’s live-action reboot of the animated classic. The star-studded cast also includes Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar), Billy Eichner (Timon), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa), and Alfre Woodard (Sarabi).
The new promo also features narration from James Earl Jones, who reprises his role as Mufasa. “Look at the stars, the great kings look down on us from those stars. And so will I,” he says.
The soundtrack is also expected to include contributions from Elton John, who is recording a new end credits song and reworking his songs from the original film including “Circle of Life,” “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King,” and “Hakuna Matata.”
The Lion King opens in theaters July 19.
