‘The Lion King’ Director Wants Beyoncé For Nala
If Jon Favreau has his way, Beyoncé will be the voice of Nala in Disney’s remake of The Lion King.
According to Variety, she’s the director’s top pick, but the Queen Bey hasn’t committed to the project due to her pregnancy.
Insiders stress that the Grammy winner has not made a decision regarding the role yet, as the star is pregnant with twins. But since it’s a voice-acting role, sources say the studio and director will do whatever it takes to accommodate her schedule. The songstress announced her pregnancy in early February and dropped out as a Coachella headliner by month’s end. Lady Gaga will replace the “Single Ladies” singer at the desert music and arts festival next month.
Donald Glover is on board to voice Simba and James Earl Jones is reprising his role as Simba’s father, Mufasa.
I’m going to cross my fingers on this one. I think it would be dope to have Bey on this project.
How about you?
