Can you feel the love tonight?

A sing-along to “The Lion King” is coming to the Bell House on June 19, so you better brush up on I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” and “The Circle of Life.”

When the Gowanus venue last held a sing-along to a beloved Disney movie — “The Little Mermaid” — the place was packed, and this installment should be similarly full of twentysomethings getting a nostalgia fix.

“We couldnt resist doing another Disney musical, especially one of the most acclaimed and beloved,” said comedian Michael Austin, who hosts the night with Jerm Pollet. “This is for all the people who love The Lion King and dont want to shell out $100 to see it on Broadway!”

The night does Broadway one step better, with a screening of the Academy Award-winning film, complete with subtitles so you can sing along to all of Elton John and Tim Rice’s songs, as well as a costume contest (animal prints are, of course, welcome), a Jeremy Irons, Whoopi Goldberg and Nathan Lane impersonation contest, trivia competition, and themed drinks including the Circle of Life, Scar, the Pride Rock and the Laughing Hyena.

And most of all, don’t forget to party by the motto — hakuna matata!

“The Lion King Sing-Along” at the Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third avenues in Gowanus, (718) 643-6510], June 19 at 8 pm. Tickets $8. For info, visit
