New Lion King TV Spot Teases Duet Between Beyonce & Donald Glover
The Last Disney TV Movie The Lion King presents our first duet tease between Beyoncé and Donald Glover. The duo faces the iconic "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" of Elton John and Tim Rice, and fans of both artists are likely to want a lot more. The original song of the animated version is sung by Jason Weaver, hand-picked by John to be Simba's singing voice. Jonathan Taylor Thomas interpreted the character very well for the role of speaker.
The Lion King is back in theaters next month and the 30-second television commercial featuring Beyoncé and Donald Glover's first vocals is surely enough to excite fans . The response to the remake has been divisive in recent months, but Disney fans have become accustomed to it recently and the new music by Glover and Beyoncé has contributed a lot to the success of this project. The recently released Aladdin remake was subject to some of the same criticism, but it was a steady source of box office revenue while gaining positive reviews.
Even with just 30 seconds of tease, it's easy to hear how Beyoncé Knowles and Donald Glover fit together. Two popstars at the top of their game collaborating on a new version of one of Disney's greatest movies to date are basically a recipe for success. One has to wonder why the studio did not come out swinging doors with "Can you feel the love tonight", which could have been because it was not not finished yet. That being said, the hunt for the full version is officially launched.
