Beyonce & Donald Glover Cover Elton John's 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight' in New 'Lion King' Teaser
With the release of the Lion King less than a month away, a new international TV spot for the movie surfaced on Thursday (June 20). The teaser features Beyoncé and Donald Glover, who will play Nala and Simba in the blockbuster flick, singing a duet of Elton John's "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" from the classic 1994 Disney original.
Bey and Glover make for a dynamic combination behind the mic, exuding soothing vocals to the legendary ballad throughout the 30-second teaser. There is no new footage used in the teaser, though Mufasa can be heard narrating the clip. "Look at the stars, the great kings look down on us from those stars. And so will I," he tells Simba.
Billy Eichner was tapped to star as Timon in the Disney remake. During a January appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Eichner admitted that he was brought to tears when he heard Donald Glover and Beyoncé's rendition. "I will just say that honestly, it made me cry and I was not expecting that," he confessed.
