Elton John also lent his voice to the soundtrack for the original song "Never Too Late." The musician, who served as the lyricist for the original film, worked with Beyonce and composer Tim Rice to rework songs from the first soundtrack for the remake.

'Lion King' Cub Donald Glover Goes Full Simba on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Video).
Tuesday marked the big Hollywood premiere of the new "Lion King," and star Donald Glover showed up to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" red-carpet ready. The voice behind Simba guested on the ABC late-night talk show while wearing a snazzy lion onesie. We're guessing he probably did pull a costume change before heading across the street for the big celebration. While with Jimmy Kimmel, the "Community" alum and "Atlanta" star talked about his musical future as Childish Gambino. While hitting all those notes, the duo also discussed Glover's big movie musical number with co-star Beyonce, and that time he met Elton John in Italy.
