Many fans have been anxiously waiting to hear even a snippet of Beyonce and Donald Glover singing together as Nala and Simba for the upcoming live-action adaptation "The Lion King" and that day is finally here.
On Thursday, Disney released a new TV spot from the highly-anticipated remake of 1994 animated classic. Although the clip is only 45 seconds long, it is the first snippet of Beyonce and Glover performing the original film's Academy Award-winning song "Can You Feel the Love Tonight." And unsurprisingly, it sounds absolutely beautiful.
But the music isn't the only surprise in the clip, as the video also presents the first footage of Simba and Nala together. Around 0:32 in the TV spot, the two lions lovingly nuzzle each other while on a grassy mountain.
Based on the footage released so far, the film, which is directed by Jon Favreau, looks like it will be pretty faithful to the original 1994 animated film, with many shots recreated for the update.
Check out the full trailer below, as well as the official synopsis from Disney:
Disney's "The Lion King," directed by Jon Favreau ("The Jungle Book"), journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother -- and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
"The Lion King" roars into theaters on July 19, 2019.
