Lion King: Beyonce & Glover Sing 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight' in New TV Spot
A TV spot for Disney’s Lion King reboot features a snippet of the long-awaited cover of Elton John’s “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” that reportedly made Billy Eichner cry. In the latest sneak peek at the “live-action” (really CGI) remake, Beyoncé and Donald Glover deliver a chills-inducing duet that is likely to get even skeptics on board.
At the very least, it’ll get the song stuck in their heads: After three repeat viewings of the clip, I found myself quietly singing the classic as I wrote this post. The TV spot also contains some O.G. Mufasa narration by James Earl Jones, imparting leonine fatherly wisdom like, “Look at the stars—the great kings look down on us from those stars. And so will I.”
