In addition to starring in Disney’s upcoming live-adaptation of The Lion King, Beyonce is reportedly working with Elton John on updated versions of songs from the original film. Updated songs for an updated, live-adaption of the movie? “They have reached an agreement to present some reworked versions of the classic hits and perhaps some new work,” a source tells the New York Daily News. “The songs will be thread into the storyline. It is unthinkable when you have Beyonce involved not to have her sing some of those iconic hits — and that means huge sales to a new generation.” Beyonce has already signed on to voice the character of Nala, opposite Donald Glover’s Simba. The film is set to premiere on July 19, 2019.
