In the words of Scar: Be prepared. It’s time to hear Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as the voice of Nala in “The Lion King.”
The superstar on Monday shared the first footage in which you can hear her voice the beloved character in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake.
In the clip, Nala tells Simba (Donald Glover) that it’s time for him to take his place as king.
“We need you,” she says. “Come home.”
Beyoncé voices the adult version of the lion, while Shahadi Wright Joseph voices the cub version of the character that originated in the 1994 animated film.
“The Lion King,” directed by Jon Favreau, hits theaters July 19.
