On Sunday, July 14th, the premiere for the movie Lion King was held at the Odeon Theatre in London. The cast and producers celebrated the release of the film on the red carpet in company of UK royalty.
Beyoncé, starring as the lead role in the movie as Nala, had the pleasure of finally meeting Meghan Markle and Prince Harry— along with a prince of her own, Jay-Z. As a result, many people a part of the beehive are giving such positive reactions to their encounter and the upcoming movie!
Also prior to the movie coming out, Beyoncé released her new single “Spirit” just a few days ago, which will be featured in the film and the film’s original motion picture soundtrack. She has explained to Genius the message and elements behind the song:
Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation.Beyonce
