Bey & Elton have something “cooking” in the studio. Back in November, it was reported on the possibility of Beyonce and Elton John helming new songs for Disney’s classic, Lion King.
The rumours can now be put to rest since Elton has confirmed that he and Bey are in fact cooking something up in the studio for the film’s remake.
The original four songs will without a doubt be in the movie, such as “Hakuna Matata,” “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King,” “Circle of Life,” and “Can You Feel The Love ?” Elton told The Sun UK, adding:
“And then there will be an end, closing song, and we’ve been speaking to
Beyonce’s people and hopefully Tim [Rice] and I and her can cook up something.”
He explained how the song will be out in 2019, “and it will be great to work with her.”
Other stars involved in the film are Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Eric Andre, James Earl Jones, Keegan-Micahel Key and more. Elton even told the publication that he’s seen “a little bit of the opening of it, which is amazing.”
The remake hits theatres on July 19, 2019. When the film was officially announced, Migos tweeted at Disney saying “3 Hyenas Lions King. Call us @Disney.”
