What’s better than Elton John returning to rework classic Lion King songs for the film’s soundtrack? Beyoncé joining him.

A source told New York Daily News:

“The songs will be thread into the storyline. It is unthinkable when you have Beyoncé involved not to have her sing some of those iconic hits — and that means huge sales to a new generation. The deal is a huge one and will earn him millions at many stages. Obviously [Elton John] will get a one off licensing deal followed by a cut in royalties from all aspects of the work.”

Fingers are so tightly crossed that we’ll get an amazing rendition of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” performed by Beyoncé and the endlessly talented Donald Glover, who is playing Simba in the live action.
