Nala Speaks in a New "Lion King" TV spot

Walt Disney Pictures has just released a new TV spot that offers a first listen to Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as the voice of Nala. Check it out in the player below!

The Lion King journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Directed by Jon Favreau, The Lion King boasts an ensemble voice cast that also includes Donald Glover as adult Simba, James Earl Jones as Mufasa (reprising his iconic performance from Disney’s 1994 animated classic), Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, JD McCrary as Young Simba, Shahadi Wright Joseph as Young Nala, John Kani as Rafiki, John Oliver as Zazu, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, and Billy Eichner as Timon.

The Lion King hits the big screen July 19.
