The remake of the movie will feature Beyonce and Childish Gambino (Donald Glover). John is reportedly hoping to get Bey to contribute to the soundtrack of the new movie as well. We think a Childish Gambino track in the movie would be pretty spectacular, but no word if he’ll be involved.
According to Complete Music Update:
According to Metro, the musician said: “They need to have a new end credits song. 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. We’ve been speaking to Beyoncé’s people and hopefully Tim [Rice] and I and her can cook up something”.
John is also preparing for a farewell tour set for later this year.
