The life circle of each Disney animated classic is that it will eventually become a live action movie, and the next one will be "The Lion King".
The shooting of the show directed by Jon Favreau began in the summer of 2017, but the star cast, which includes Donald Glover as Simba and Beyoncé as Nala, seems to still work hard to provide voices for the beloved animated characters.
Favreau shared a photo behind Beyoncé's scenes of some of the film's stars on her Twitter account on Wednesday, mocking what could be the recording of "Hakuna Matata".
In the photo, Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner, who play the iconic duo Timon and Pumba, pose with Glover and Favreau.
All the characters in the film sing the anthem together, so it is not too difficult to assume that this team was deeply in the "carefree" mode.
Rogen and Eichner also shared the photo on their own social media accounts.
Despite Bey's absence in the recording session, we know that Glover, at least, has worked with her, which, understandably, he described as "un-intimidating".
"Just listening to her do it, it's been like, man, this is something really special," Glover told "Entertainment Tonight" in May.
Eichner admitted that he also had trouble staying calm with renowned stars on set.
"It was driving me crazy," said the student of "Difficult People" to E! News. "I mean, the cast is amazing, Seth Rogen and I are Timon and Pumbaa, so we do 'Hakuna Matata' and then we also sing 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight' with Simba and Nala, who will be played by Donald Glover and someone named Beyoncé. "
Oh yeah? We think we have heard about it
"The Lion King", which will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019, is also starring James Earl Jones, John Oliver, JD McCrary, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Alfre Woodard.
