Beyonce, 37, – who voiced Nala in the live-action Disney film – wore a bespoke crystal chandelier embroidered tuxedo Alexander McQueen dress.

The duo posed up a storm at the star-studded premiere for the movie, which is a remake of the 1994 hit.

Her Destiny’s Child bandmates – Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland – were also out in force to support her  – sending fans wild.

The film boasts a cast that includes the likes of Donald Glover as a young Simba and James Earl Jones.

Elsewhere, British comedian John Oliver will provide the voice of Zazu – who serves as Mufasa’s loyal chief steward – in the live-action remake.

As well as keeping Sir Elton John and Tim Rice’s original songs in the upcoming film – which include Can You Feel The Love Tonight, Be Prepared and I Just Can’t Wait To Be King – the remake will also feature some new tunes.

Beyonce has dropped a new single ahead of the release of her Lion King-curated album – The Lion King: The Gift dropping on July 19th.

The 37-year-old singer has released track Spirit – which features on the movie remake.

Speaking about the album, which she has also produced, Beyonce said in a statement: “This is sonic cinema. This is a new experience of storytelling.

“I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film.

“It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, hip-hop and Afro Beat.

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline.

“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.

“It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”

Beyonce also has a song on Disney’s original soundtrack to the live-action remake of the movie.

The soundtrack will drop on July 11th and feature a version of Sir Elton John’s Can You Feel the Love Tonight by the Halo hitmaker and Donald Glover, who voices Nala’s love interest Simba in the film, which will drop on July 19th.
