The first official 'Lion King' trailer, which features Beyonce has dropped - and the BeyHive has lost it!

Back in April, Disney released the movie's second trailer, but Beyonce was nowhere to be seen (or heard), but this one is all about her character, Nala.

Simba, you have to take your place as king," Bey can be heard saying in the clip". "We need you. Come home."

Jon Favreau enlisted the talents of Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce as Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, John Oliver as Zazu, and Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumba for the live-action movie. James Earl Jones is reprising his role as Mufasa from the 1994 classic.

We are yet to hear Donald Glover's voice as the lead character, Simba. Check out the trailer below.

The movie is slated for release in Australia on July 19 before dropping in the US and UK on July 19.
