The Lion King remake is already one of the most hyped films of 2019. The film is set for release in July and many fans can't wait to hear the new take on the iconic soundtrack.

In a recent interview on the show 'Watch What Happens Live', Billy Eichner (who will be playing the role of Timon) shared a bit of insight into how the new version of the film will tackle the iconic song 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight'.

"I play Timon, and Timon and Pumbaa start singing 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight?' and then it segues into Beyoncé (Nala) and Donald Glover (Simba) singing it," he said.

Fans were pretty excited by the news that Beyonce will be singing one of the most popular songs from the film.

"It made me tear up to think Donald and Beyonce will be singing can you feel the love tonight!" one wrote.

"Beyonce covering those classics. It’s gonna be crazy I want her to perform it live at the Oscars or something!" added another.

The countdown is on until we get to see and hear the Lion King in cinemas in July!
