A new TV spot for Jon Favreau’s The Lion King has given fans a first look at Beyoncé’s version of Nala. The 30-second visual features the iconic artist’s voice work for the character, where she can be heard speaking to Simba (voiced by Donald Glover) about returning to Pride Rock to reclaim his throne. “Come home,” she tells Simba, ending the teaser with a reveal of Billy Eichner’s Timon and Seth Rogen’s Pumbaa.

The upcoming remake features a star-studded cast, including Chiwetel Umeadi Ejiofor as Scar, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver as Zazu, Eric Andre, Keegan Michael-Key and Marvel’s Florence Kasumba as Scar’s hyena henchmen Azizi, Kamari and Shenzi, along with James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa.

Watch the full clip above. Disney’s The Lion King premieres July 19.
