Ever since Disney announced the cast for the live-action remake of The Lion King we've been buzzing with excitement. 

It sees Beyonce taking on the role of Nala, while James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Mufasa. Meanwhile, Seth Rogen has also joined the cast, as he plays Pumbaa. It is due for release in 2019, and production is well underway. 

According to New York Daily News, Beyonce and Elton John are in the studio working away on the music for the film. 

They say 'Elton is working with Disney on this new ‘Lion King’ project. They have reached an agreement to present some reworked versions of the classic hits and perhaps some new work.'

The same source added '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 he will get a one off licensing deal followed by a cut in royalties from all aspects of the work.'

The Lion King live-action remake is due out on July 19th 2019.
