When Favreau was asked about how thrilled he was when Bey joined the cast, he said, "understanding who she is and what she represents to so many people and the fact that she's collaborating with me on this, really helps differentiate it from previous productions. It helps give this production its own personality, because she's such an important figure and her musical interpretation is seen as something that people welcome." He also addressed the mysterious new song that Beyoncé sings in the movie, sharing that "it doesn't replace anything." The new Lion King will include all the original songs, but Bey's new track is one "she performed and wrote in the spirit of the production." Make no mistake though: Favreau assures us that the new record feels "organically a part of the new production." See more »

Life's - not fair - is it my little friend? While some are born to feast - others spend their lives in the dark... begging for scraps. The way I see it you and I are exactly the same, we both want to find a way out.

The Disney logo has a hand-drawn animated design and resembles the 1960s Disney logo, the same design used in Jon Favreau's previous Disney film The Jungle Book (2016). See more »
Visually it was well done but..... As far as the emotion goes it was not there. They tried to make it a drama. But with no emotion in the characters. I was VERY disappointed. One of my favorite movies of all time ruined here. I don't think the actors were in the same room reading their parts. I think everyone went home with their part read the lines into a recorder attached the recording emailed them back to the studio someone pieced it all together and said here you go Lion King 2019
