Beyoncé Is Reportedly The Top Choice To Play Nala In The Live-Action Remake Of "The Lion King"

A certain queen may be on her way to Pride Rock.

According to Variety, director Jon Favreau really wants Beyoncé to play the role of Nala in the upcoming remake of the 1994 animated film The Lion King.

The publication also said that insiders have stressed the fact that Favreau would be more than willing to accommodate her schedule.

But whether Beyoncé wants to actually play Nala or not is still in question, considering the singer hasn't spoken on the matter yet.

So far, the highly anticipated film has filled a few roles, like that of Simba, who will be played by Donald Glover.

I just can’t wait to be king. #Simba

Favreau also announced that James Earl Jones, who voiced Mufasa in the original, would also be lending his talents to the remake.

Looking forward to working with this legend. #Mufasa

The live-action remake doesn't have a release date, but we'll be waiting with bated breath.


Favreau's publicist declined to comment on the circulating reports.
