Beyoncé considered for a key role in Disney’s Lion King remake

Beyoncé could play a key part in the live-action remake of Disney’s The Lion King.

The singer is reportedly wanted for the role of Nala.

According to Variety, she is director Jon Favreau’s top choice for the part.

And he is so keen on booking the star, he is said to be willing to do ‘whatever it takes’ to get Queen Bey on board.

So far the Grammy winner, who cancelled her Coachella headline gig because she is pregnant, has not committed to the role.

It wouldn’t be the first on-screen animated role for Beyoncé either. Her last appearance was in 2013 animated movie Epic, where she voiced Queen Tara, the queen of the forest.

So far, the Lion King remake has cast two leading men. Donald Glover will voice Simba, and James Earl Jones is taking on the role of Simba’s father Mufasa, which he originated in 1994.

Although no release date has been set, the Lion King remake is being fast-tracked, despite Favreau working on the sequel to his Jungle Book remake.

Originally released in 1994, The Lion King is often describes as Disney’s best-known movies; it is also one of the highest-grossing animated films of all time. It has spawned two sequels as well as a long-running hit musical which still holds eight sit-down production across the world; a ninth company is touring North America, and a World Tour will launch next year.
