Prior to this, the music aspect of the film has been pretty underwraps.
The song was featured in the brand new teaser trailer. It was originally performed by Elton John. He actually won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for the track in 1995.
Check out the new teaser below.
Well now, we have the full tracklist. One surprise is that Elton John, who wrote many songs from the original film, has co-written a new song that will be featured in the movie.
