The live action tape of "The Lion King" featured new versions of songs such as "Ready Now", "Hakuna Matata" and "The Endless Cycle", in addition to original songs such as "Never Too Late", which was created for the movie by Elton John and Tim Rice.
Despite this, the musician said he would have liked to go deeper into the film. “I wish they had invited me more to the party, but this time the creative vision of the film and its music was different and they really didn't welcome me or treated me with the same level of respect,” said John.
The new version of "The Lion King" raised $ 185 million in the United States on its first weekend. Months later, it exceeded one billion worldwide at the box office.
