For Beyoncé fans who just couldn’t wait to hear the star’s portrayal of Nala in “The Lion King” — be prepared. Disney just dropped a new trailer for its live-action version of the classic animated flick and it features her voice for the very first time.
The 30-second long trailer heavily showcases the performer’s take on the beloved character, opening with a shot of the mountains and a computer-generated Nala speaking to Donald Glover’s Simba.
The movie is projected to dominate at the box office when it premieres July 19 with its star-studded cast. Comedians Keegan-Michael Key, John Oliver and Eric Andre are also featured in the film. Alfre Woodard voices Sarabi, Simba’s mom, and James Earl Jones reprises his role as Mufasa.
