Sir Elton John, Sir Tim Rice, and Beyoncé Plan on Collaborating on a Song in ‘The Lion King’


In an interview with The Sun, Sir Elton John confirmed that he was planning on collaborating with Sir Tim Rice and Beyoncé on a song for the upcoming live-action The Lion King film! Sir Elton John and Sir Tim Rice worked together on the 1994 original animated The Lion King film. In the interview, Sir Elton John said:

"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 and I and her can cook up something."
