Lion King fever has spread around the world for the second time. And it’s all thanks to the reimagined version of the 1994 animated Disney classic.
The new version of the film features more “realistic” looking characters and an almost entirely new cast, with the only returning member being James Earl Jones (Mufasa).
Like the original film, the recent remake has been a massive box office draw. As of press time, it has earned over $1 billion globally since its release on July 17.

While The Lion King remake has been raking in millions of dollars, one man has been raking in millions of views on a video that shows him singing one of the film’s iconic songs.
But the reason why nearly two million people have watched Travis Kinley sing “Circle of Life” isn’t because of his vocal performance. Rather, its because of his unexpected duet partner who joins in midway.
That unexpected duet partner happens to be Travis’ donkey, Nathan. After hearing Travis’ powerful performance, Nathan decided to join in the fun, and began braying along with him!
Travis seemed stunned to hear that his pet donkey was now singing along with him, shooting a look of surprise to the camera. He kept trucking through the song, and Nathan kept on singing too!
The pair’s Lion King-themed duet has swept the internet, and as of this writing, has been viewed 4.7 million times. It has also been shared over 81,000 times.
