Holy freaking moly!

That was our reaction to watching the latest teaser trailer for The Lion King remake – and not just because we are so damn excited for the film to be released.

No, our reaction is based purely on the soundtrack used in the background of the trailer as it gives us our first glimpse at Beyonce and Donald Glover singing a Lion King classic, ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’.

Queen Bey and Donald Glover play the older versions of Nala and Simba in the live action remake of the Disney classic.

In the original film, the song was composed and sung by Elton John when Simba and Nala realise their love for one another.

You can listen to 30 seconds of Beyonce and Glover’s rendition in the video above! And honestly prepare yourselves because it’s spine-tingling!

The teaser also features a classic line from James Earl Jones who plays Mufasa.

“Look at the stars,” his deep, resonating voice says. “The big kings look down on us from those stars. And so will I.”

The Lion King live action remake hits theatres on July 19! And we seriously can’t wait!
