The epic tale of a lion prince who comes home to claim his rightful place as the king of the jungle opens in theaters this Thursday, July 18, 2019. However, that don't mean you'll get to see it. It may take a week to get tickets if you haven't purchased any yet because it's pretty much sold out everywhere. The Lion King 2019 original movie soundtrack may be a lot easier to obtain, though. It was released July 11 and features new and original songs like Circle of Life and Can You Feel The Love Tonight from the classic 1994 Disney movie. Beyonce and music legend, Elton John, teamed up to work on the soundtrack, which features a host of artists and tracks from the two of them.
In addition, The Guardian reports that Beyonce revealed she is releasing her new album/tribute, The Lion King: The Gift, this Friday, July 19, 2019. Bey said the new project features several new American and African artists among the album's fourteen songs, including four new solo songs, with collabs with her baby girl Blu, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams, Childish Gambino and more. By the way, her beautiful new single Spirit and a remake of Can You Feel The Love Tonight with Danny Glover, Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner appear on both albums.
Last Thursday, the cast and celebrity fans of the iconic film flocked to the big movie world premiere at Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
