As you can hear we have a great audience here in New York City. Thank y'all very much and also there is Texas joining us for our big "Gma" summer road trip, Michael, Lara, ginger, all there and, Lara, you have a special "Pop news." I do, robin. Very special as you're about to see but we're going to begin with news on Houston's own Beyonce. Yes. Had a very big night last night that had us all feeling the love. Check it out. The stars of the new "The lion king" hitting the red carpet in L.A. Last night. Nobody's seen it. None of us have seen it. Beyonce -- well, maybe bhooez. All eyes were on queen bey who arrived with her lion cub blue ivy in matching outfits. She doesn't disappoint. It was really wonderful collaborating with her. A new song called "Spirit." Donald glover who voices adult simba still overwhelm the go to the play this iconic role. It's kind of mind blowing. And Seth rogen as everyone's favorite warthog warning there may be surprises. There is a lot of new comedic material in the film. Beyonce's song you heard a little bit of it called "Spirit" for the soundtrack getting major Oscar buzz and this getting rave reviews, critics calling it visually stunning, beautifully crafted and many who have seen it say be prepared to cry. I think that's true. Yes, my twins went to see it last night. They loved it. So it was incredible. What's not to love. "The lion king" in theaters nationwide July 19th. Oh, by the way, we have some of the stars of "The lion king." What. Including Seth rogen and Billy Eichner joining us on "Good morning America" before the movie opens, so looking forward to that. Then I want to bring back the story we did that got so much reaction. Do you remember, well, first of all we although everything is bigger in Texas. You know firsthand. But this story we did, so much reaction about some folks down here who heard about petco's policy that all leashed pets are welcome into any petco so they decided we'll try this they brought in their pet which just happened to be a 1600-pound steer named Oliver. Oh, wow. His horns barely clearing the aisle, a span of ten feet. Quite a feat getting him in the sliding doors. They thank gosh somebody caught this whole thing on video. It's gone wildly viral. Millions have seen it. Guess what, "Gma" actually has the same policy as petco. I don't know if you know that. We allow all leashed animals on our set. So come on out, Oliver. Champion. Oliver. Wow. He's on his leash. Hi, Oliver. The one and only viral sensation. Is that food? This is Oliver's favorite food? Let me ask you, you decided you would test out that policy. Yes, ma'am. Don'ten scared. Don't be scared. Oh, look at that tongue. He'll take it out of your let me try one more. What if they had said no? Were you concerned. We just wouldn't have went in if they said no. No problem. Were you cracking up when Oliver is in the aisles. Oliver, just go for it. You deserve it. He doesn't like it. Guy, a couple of fun facts about Oliver. These horns weigh -- Careful. They weigh 100 pounds. Wow. Look at that. That will get you. Each? Do you think he wants some of Michael's mom's cake. He won't eat cake. This is his -- You are going to give him some of my mom's cake? I don't want to test it out on Oliver. How old is Oliver. Is he a teenager? A middle-aged fella. Did he enjoy his petco experience. Yes, ma'am. Are you going back. If they want us back we'll probably go back. I see petco's new marketing right here. We have to thank our new mascot
