If you’re a Disney fanatic, chances are you are eagerly awaiting the release of the 2019 remake of Disney’s The Lion King, which hits theaters July 19.
As much as we loved the 1994 cartoon classic version, we might be even more pumped for this one, due in large part to the star-studded cast of characters playing our favorite friends from the animal kingdom. But probably the most anticipated role is Beyoncé as Nala. Disney just released a new 30-second TV trailer featuring Beyoncé, and the energy shared between her and Donald Glover as Simba does not disappoint!
The new trailer also features our favorite silly duo, Timon and Pumbaa, as voiced by hysterical comedians Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen, respectively, who are both pitch perfect for the roles.
Beyoncé’s fans have already begun reacting on Twitter with lines like, “Why did I start crying when I heard Beyoncé talk, I’ve heard her voice like a million times, it shouldn’t affect me like this,” from @Thesefourwalls7.
We have to agree: Beyoncé has one of the most soothing and recognizable voices in history, and she is a perfect match for the role of strong, calm, yet fierce Nala.
Stave off your anticipation for July 19 by watching the teaser-trailer featuring Beyoncé as Nala as many times as it will take for you to be OK with waiting just a few short weeks for the film’s release.
