In recent news, the Disney movie The Lion King is getting a reboot and will be directed by Jon Favreau. Donald Glover and James Earl Jones have already been casted as Simba and Mufasa, and Favreau has someone in mind for the voice of Nala: Beyonce.
Today, Variety reported Favreau is aiming to get Queen Bey to play the part of Nala. Beyonce has had to basically clear her schedule of performances because of her pregnancy, but does this mean she could do a movie instead? “The studio and director will do whatever it takes to accommodate her schedule,” Variety stated in the report.
Of course, nothing is set in stone, but Beyonce and/or Disney fans are giddy over the probability Bey could play a big movie role in a Disney classic.
