New Beyoncé song "Spirit" to appear on Lion King-inspired album

The Lion King TV Spot Reveals Preview of Simba and Scar's Showdown

The Lion King TV Spot Reveals Preview of Simba and Scar's Showdown

Beyonce and her daughter, Blue Ivy, shut down the red carpet at the Lion King premiere at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Tuesday.

Beyonce also duet with another one of the film's stars, Donald Glover, for the remake of Elton John's classic, "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", which is slated for release on July 11. Chance voices the Bush Baby in the movie, a role that came to life since Donald told director Jon Favreau to invite Chance to the studio to assist with some aspects of the remake.

"I just listened to what (Beyonce) had to teach me", Glover said of working with the Grammy Award victor.

"I'm just going to play it super cool", he recalled.

I'm not kidding. They apparently steal the whole show. The track was written and produced alongside Lebo M. and the original The Lion King composer Hans Zimmer. "The music department, we went insane".

Arsenal appoint former midfielder club's technical director
Arsenal's measly £45 million transfer budget has been the source of considerable frustration amongst Gunners fans this year.

"This is sonic cinema", Beyoncé said of the record in a statement. Most voice actors do the job solo. Will Simba heed the noble call and take the throne that is rightfully his, or will he stay in the Hakuna Matata bubble to which he has become so accustomed?

Here's the official synopsis for the movie: Disney's "The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau ("The Jungle Book"), journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born". So for about a year I would go to the LK studio and see early animations, scenes, music direction or assemblies and they'd always be out of this world wonderful.

"The story of us all being connected is a universal truth that we really can't ignore anymore", he said. "Because we're all connected".

The ladies had support from close friends at the event, like singing protegees Chloe and Halle Bailey, and former Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. He also singled out filmmakers of the animated original that were in the audience for special thanks.
