Stopping by 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert', the comedian voicing Zazu in the live-action film recalls feeling intimidated by the future presence of the 'Halo' singer during the photoshoot.

AceShowbiz - Busy Beyonce Knowles had to be Photoshopped into "The Lion King (2019)" cast photo.

The singer's castmate John Oliver revealed the magic that went in to including the "Halo" singer when the film's stars got together for a group shot to promote the new film, which broke box office records over the weekend (July 20-21).

"She wasn't there," he said during a recent appearance on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert". "I think almost everyone else was there. I remember Chiwetel (Ejiofor), we were setting up the shot and Chiwetel was sitting up in the front and he said, 'You need to be careful where your foot is'."

"I looked down, and there was just this piece of tape on the floor with Beyonce's name written on it. I literally, it was like an electrical reaction, I went, 'Oh f**k!...' Just the future presence of Beyonce was so intimidating."

"If you look at my face in there, I look really intimidated. And that's because what I'm doing is imagining that I am about to be put into a photo with Beyonce, and that was nerve-wracking enough."
