Hakuna Matata and Circle of Life may have to take a back seat on this one, as the new soundtrack of The Lion King is already legendary, just by it’s creators.
Sir Elton John has confirmed that he is working on the soundtrack of the upcoming remake of The Lion King with Beyoncé.
Speaking during a recent interview, he said he was heading back into the studio to help create a new end credits song for the 2019 film that will star Beyonce, Donald Glover and Seth Rogen.
The 70-year-old said: ‘They need to have a new end credits song. There’s going to be four of our songs in the film, from the original: Can You Feel The Love Tonight, Hakuna Matata, I Just Can’t Wait To Be King and Circle of Life. ‘And then there will be an end, closing song, and we’ve been speaking to Beyoncé’s people and hopefully Tim [Rice] and I and her can cook up something. It will be great to work with her. So we will see.”
Sir Elton worked on the soundtrack for the original 1994 Disney film, so it’s only fitting he’s lending his voice to the upcoming remake.
