The Lion King gives fans first look at Beyonce as Nala in new trailer

There were growing concerns that Beyonce wasn’t actually in the new Lion King movie, as it took a while for her to make an appearance in the film’s trailers.

BUT a new teaser for the Disney re-make has just dropped and Beyonce takes centre stage. It’s finally happening, people.

Queen Bey voices the role of Nala in the movie and she’s heard delivering that all important line when Simba goes rogue and runs away from Pride Rock.

‘Simba, you have to take your place as King,’ she says. ‘We need you. Come home.’

And if Beyonce’s voice wasn’t enough to give you goosebumps, then seeing the movie come to life in its new live-action format will definitely have your spine tingling.

It sounds like Bey’s appearance in the movie will have us feeling all the feels, as her co-star Billy Eichner (who plays Timone in the movie) has been teasing just how good she is ahead of Lion King’s release next month.

During his appearance on Crooked Media’s Keep It podcast, Billie teased: ‘She’s definitely in the movie because I’ve seen a rough cut.

‘And I’ve heard her sing Can You Feel the Love Tonight? with Donald Glover and I’m telling you, it’s f**king good.’


‘That was never my favorite song to be totally honest,’ Billie continued. ‘I liked it when Elton John sang it. I love Elton John.

‘I don’t want to give too much away about that, they do not want us talking about it. I will just say that honestly, it made me cry and I was not expecting that.’

B, we’d expect nothing less.

It was previously revealed that Beyonce is executive producer of The Lion King soundtrack and is working on recording an original song with Elton John, who helmed the original animation’s music.

Beyonce stars alongside Donald Glover who has been cast as Simba. Seth Rogen is Pumba in the re-make, while James Earl Jones is reprising his role as Mufasa, the character he voiced in the 1994 original.

The Lion King will be released in cinemas on 19 July.
