When it came to their beauty looks, both ladies wore their hair natural, with Beyoncé slicking her locks back in cornrows and Blue opting for a braided style.
The Malaysian press screening of Jon Favreau's The Lion King live-action remake will be held tomorrow, but reactions by those who were lucky enough to catch the world premiere in the U.S. have already flooded the Twitter-sphere.
First of all, every single person on the red carpet looked wonderful.
From Beyoncé and Donald Glover to Chloe x Halle and Normani, the red carpet was wildly star-studded. Who can forget Blue Ivy appearing to "shush" parents Beyonce and Jay-Z during her appearance at the Grammy Awards a year ago? Blue Ivy also walked the red carpet and attended the 2016 MTV VMAs with her mom.
While it didn't appear that Jay-Z was in attendance, Beyonce's bestie Michelle Williams did show up in support of her Destiny Child's partner and praised Bey. According to those who saw the first press screenings of the movie, The Lion King not only lives up to the high expectations, but might even surpass them.
"Yeah, that was a big deal", Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, told Variety's Marc Malkin at the movie's star-studded world premiere on Tuesday night in Hollywood. While not technically "live-action", early viewers report that the meticulous work on "The Lion King" might be the next best thing. She will also be singing "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", the iconic song from the original 1994 animated movie, with her co-star and the voice of Simba, Donald Glover, 35.
Sporting a brightly patterned button-up shirt and a black suit, Seth Rogen, who voices the amusing and lovable Pumbaa in the film, steps out solo for the world premiere.
