“The Lion King” Celebrates World Premiere With Beyonce, Donald Glover and More

Yesterday on July 9, 2019 in Hollywood was the World Premiere of Disney’s THE LION KING. Stars in attendance included Donald Glover, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, Florence Kasumba, Eric André, Keegan-Michael Key, JD McCrary, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Chance the Rapper and more.

Meanwhile in ATL, I was invited to the press screening to see if the remake lived up to the hype. By far, it did. I brought my kids (a teenager and a millennial) and they were on the edge of their seats the entire time. The diversity was iconic. Perfect for all ages.

The Lion King hits theaters July 19th. Check out the pics from the Hollywood premiere below.
