Beyonce Shares Striking ‘Lion King’ Promo

Published: Tuesday 2nd Jul 2019 by Sam

‘The Lion King’ charges into theaters on July 19th and is fast shaping to be one of the biggest movies in recent years.

Beyond being one of Disney‘s most successful franchises, the live-action incarnation of the flick is especially anticipated thanks to the starring roles of Beyonce and Donald Glover, who play Nala and Simba respectively.

With the release date fast approaching, Queen Bey has signalled her excitement by sharing a promo snap of her face to face with her counterpart. Check out the pic above.

The 23-time Grammy winner is confirmed to play an integral role in both the film and its music, with director Jon Favreau confirming she has recorded an original song too.

A refresher on his words below…

In an interview with Fandango, Favreau said of the new material the Bey created:

“It doesn’t replace anything. We have all the original songs, but there’s a song that [Beyonce] performed and wrote in the spirit of the production along with working with Lebo M., who’s part of it with Hans Zimmer. They were all collaborating with her and helping to bring this new piece of music into a film where there’s already a very established musical personality to the piece. So it was nice of them to have them working with her to allow the new song to feel organically a part of the new production.”

And while folks will have to wait a few weeks for the film, ‘The Lion King’ soundtrack arrives on July 11th. Translation? New Beyonce is around the corner!

      • Jasmine1999 July 2, 2019

        Lol you wish Beyonce lover..let’s see what excuse you come up with when this does wonderful box office numbers

  2. Lol July 2, 2019

    It’s her and her character. How is this striking?

  3. LUCKI July 2, 2019

    Beyoncé always gets an original song in remakes/already established films lol. I’m interested to hear it…

  4. Dc July 2, 2019

    Nala didn’t even have big role

    • The Disrespectful Poet July 2, 2019

      Which is where the surprises come in. They allegedly expanded her role.

      • SMH July 2, 2019

        Hope she got some acting lessons.

  5. Clarkson July 2, 2019

    Meh. Same hair, same makeup.
    Her beauty is over rated.
    She is a boring woman with zero personality. The role of nala should have gone to someone with a fun interesting personality like adele or even Rihanna. Rihanna has a sultry speaking voice full of personality.

    • Dc July 2, 2019

      They used her name to sell movie lol

      • SMH July 2, 2019

        Um no, this movie would sell without her name. She’s just bandwagon hopping.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED July 2, 2019

      Lol I agree Rihanna could’ve played the Warhog lmao 😂

      Lol rihSCEDULED fans get more delusional everyday… If a skunk could talk it would sound like Rihsceduled speaking voice

      Beys speaking voice is sultry husky and dynamic it’s one of a kind. And similar enough to the original Nala voice actor Moira Kelly.

      Rihsceduled would better suit Nala as a child, I’m interested in hearing simba and nalas child voice in this remake also

      • SMH July 2, 2019

        Stop please. Beyonce sounds just as illiterate talking as you do on your posts.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED July 2, 2019

      And beauty wise the twins WRECKED And did major damage to bey physically… But pre 2017 bey looked way better than rihscedule.

      And Beys prime 03-08 beauty completely annihilates rihs looks whom isnt even naturally beautiful like bey

      • ??? July 2, 2019

        lmaoooooo keep dreaming fatso, roach looks just as basic as your fat ass’s. And don’t bring Queen Riri into this she’s made MILLIONS off of her natural fenty beauty, and she can buy and sell that basic looking roach you stan and make her ass work in the adidas fitting room, so stop with your pork dreams piggy lmfaooooo 😂 😂😂 😂

    • Deyzz July 2, 2019

  6. DIABETES UNBOTHERED July 2, 2019

    • ??? July 2, 2019

      • Jasmine1999 July 2, 2019

        Oooooooh ok so that’ll be your excuse to hate when this movie does wonders at box office, you’ll cling to a doing from the soundtrack not going platinum. You’re pathetic you Bey loving lunatic
