Beyonce is ‘top choice’ to play Nala in Lion King live-action reboot
Beyonce is the top choice to play Nala in Disney’s live-action reboot of The Lion King. She is pregnant with twins, factoring into her decision. The studio is willing to accommodate her. Donald Glover will voice Simba, and James Earl Jones is reprising his role as Mufasa.
Obviously, since it’s a voice role, there’s a lot more flexibility . . . and Disney and the director want her badly enough that they’ll do whatever’s necessary to work around her.
Will you be waiting for this reboot tea sippers?
