Happy Lion King Day! Whether or not you’re a Disney fan, new Beyoncé anything is reason to celebrate. Here’s everything that has us excited this week. 


The Lion King


We’re all dying to see Beyoncé as Nala in the live-action remake of this Disney classic—and we can’t wait for that soundtrack, either. In theaters July 18.


This Irish drama, starring Darragh Mckenzie, Ellie O’Halloran, and Fiona Ashe, is about a mother trying to protect her family when they become homeless. Out in America July 19.


The Lion King: The Gift by Beyoncé


If “Spirit” is any indication, The Gift (a Lion King companion album, not be confused with the film’s soundtrack) is going to be incredible. Out July 19.

“Sick” by Vivian Girls 

Though the trio broke up in 2014, Vivian Girls are back! Their new album, Memory, is coming out this September, but they’ve got a single to tide you over ’til then. “Sick” is available to stream right now. 

“Gone” by Charli XCX and Christine and the Queens


Charli’s collaborated with Troye Sivan, Lizzo, and now, French artist Héloïse Letissier (better known as Christine and the Queens). “Gone” is now streaming.
