Listen to Beyonce sing Spirit on the new Lion King 2019 soundtrack

Listening: Beyoncé Is Back With The Sublime ‘Spirit’ Of ‘The Lion King’ Donald Glover on Working With Beyoncé in ‘Lion King,’ Playing Simba

When Simba goes into exile, he relies on two newfound friends - Seth Rogen (Sausage Party, Neighbors) lends his comedic chops to naïve warthog Pumbaa, and Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, American Horror Story) joins the cast as know-it-all meerkat, Timon. Speaking about the remake, the director had earlier said in an interview, "The more we looked at it, the more we challenged the story". You can see the post below.

However, there have been mixed reactions from fans about the song. His splendid singing voice is briefly teased but sadly underused in a scene that will likely delight and disappoint longtime fans in equal measure. They say that the lively song doesn't match up with the characters' more toned-down demeanor. "This is like a powerhouse that they can't even make anymore", Variety quoted the actor as saying at the star-studded World Premiere of "The Lion King". With just a week to go until general audiences can partake in the Circle of Life for themselves, The Lion King is revving its promotional engines and getting ready to stoke the fires of fandom into a feeding frenzy. I am so blessed to know people like Donald and Jon man.

Detecting the gravitational wave background using one of these pulsar timing arrays takes patience and plenty of monitored stars. So this type of black hole shouldn't exist but it does - making the behemoth, mysterious cosmic phenomena even more intriguing.

With the full tracklist out, one surprise is that Elton John, who wrote many songs from the original film, has co-written a new song that will be featured in the movie. Described as a "love letter to Africa", the track list and info on featured artists will be coming soon.

Maybe this might be a sign for Disney to quit with the remakes and start making new movies again? The soundtrack has been composed by Hans Zimmer. The Guardian review concludes, "Basically, this new Lion King sticks very closely to the original version, and in that sense, it's, of course, watchable and enjoyable".
