New Lion King Spot: Hear Beyonce As Nala

"Come home."


Disney has released a new TV spot for The Lion King, and this one for the first trailer showcases Beyonce's character, Nala. The spot is called "Come Home," and it covers the sequence in the movie where Nala convinces Simba (Donald Glover) to return home to save Pride Rock.

"Simba, you have to take your place as king. We need you. Come home."

In addition to teasing out some of the drama when Simba returns home, the new trailer briefly teases the playful and silly comedic duo of Timon and Pumbaa, who are voiced by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen respectively.

This new spot for The Lion King follows the release of lots of character posters that Disney put out last week. You can see the posters in the gallery below; click through to see them all.

James Earl Jones returns in The Lion King as Mufasa, while Chiwetel Ejiofor voices Scar.
