“The Lion King” coming this week, Seth Rogen just can’t wait for the audiences to see, but the star who voices the hilarious warthog Pumbaa, said that he took a moment at premiere to “personally” apologize to Beyoncé for something.
At Good Morning America, Rogen told that the pressure of sharing a song with the Beyoncé, who voices Nala, was not something I ever expected.
He further added, while laughing,
“I apologized to her personally for having to share credit with me,” Rogen said of the hit song “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from the movie’s soundtrack. “I currently have like the No. 5 song on iTunes, so that’s thrilling,”
“But overall, I loved it, and I think that the song turned out great, and the fact that I didn’t ruin it was just a true pleasure,” Rogen said.
With this highly anticipated movie “the lion King” Seth Rogen also had some royal excitement: on Sunday night at London’s Leicester Square, the European premiere was also attended by the Prince Harry and Meghan, and among others are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The director of the movie, Jon Favreau said that “It was very nice to meet the Duke and Duchess, their royal majesties. It was very exciting,” But Seth Rogen had a different take, by saying that, “It was weird watching a movie with so many royal themes with actual royalty.”
“I kept thinking, ‘Is this connecting with them in a way I don’t understand?'” he laughed.
Both Favreau and Rogen agreed that translates on-screen, is one aspect of the movie that is the “dynamic” interaction between the characters.
“We were really able to kind of create a dynamic amongst each other,” Rogen said. “Jon really encouraged us to try things and to make it feel as naturalistic and kind of conversational as possible.”
