The Lion King: New TV Spot teases Beyoncé, Donald Glover duet on 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight'
Lion King's TV Spot depicts Beyoncé and Donald Glover croon to 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight's chorus a capella
A new TV spot montage of Disney's Lion King remake features a duet number by Beyoncé and Donald Glover, who croon to 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight'. The video depicts the two performers (who also voice Nala and Simba's characters in the film), singing the song's chorus a capella.
The track continues on to the third verse — "The peace the evening brings / The world for once in perfect harmony / With all its living things." While the song plays, CGI graphics of Lion King characters such as Rafiki (voiced by John Kani), Mufasa (James Earl Jones), a young Simba (JD McCrary), Pumbaa (Seth Rogen) and Timon (Billy Eichner) appear on-screen.
