Elton John ‘Hopes’ To Be Involved In The Lion King Live-Action Film
The live-action remake of The Lion King is in production and the man who wrote all those beautiful songs, Elton John, says he “hopes” he will be involved —HOPES???
“It was very exciting, I was a surprise,” Elton said to Entertainment Tonight about the surprise performance he did for Broadway’s The Lion King’s 20th anniversary. “I wasn’t able to be here for the 15th anniversary and it’s been such an important part of my life, it’s opened so many doors for me, and it was just great to see everybody.”
“It seems only yesterday we started it at the kitchen table in Atlanta,” his husband David Furnish said. “It’s been an amazing journey, we’ve learned so much. I’ve learned so much, the foundation has learned so much. It’s a wonderful foundation.”
When asked if he will be participating in the movie, Elton replied, “Yes, I think so. I hope so.”
