Beyonce to Join The Lion King?


Earlier this year it was announced that James Earl Jones would be reprising his role as Mufasa in a CGI live-action remake of The Lion King with Donald Glover cast as Simba [click here if you missed that].

Could Beyonce be joining this iconic cast...?


Could be.

According to Variety Beyonce is at the top of director Jon Favreau’s wish list of actors to voice the role of Nala.

So far a decision has not been made.

Every few months her PR people float these fugazi stories to make the public think that Beyonce has a Hollywood career. She can sing and dance well, but when she speaks it's a trainwreck. The can't have Nahla (a princess) going to sounding functionally illiterate.

Hell no! With all the talented Black actresses who need work and are theater trained, he wants Beyonce (who sounds like an old Virginia Slave?) Way to ruin my childhood.

sure way for it to be a flop. this heifer cannot act. her singing is not that good either to me... but since some people like it she should stick to just that. when she speaks........LAWD help us! when she tries to act it sounds like she is reading... seems to me someone close to her would tell her. she should know if she has ever watched herself.

Notice how she's been reduced to only getting voice roles in films. What was her last real starring role, obsessed? Maybe that's why.....

^^^Cadillac Records...She'll only be featured via cgi though, if she can't do voice over work then she's in bad shape!

Like someone said: "it's great to be Jay Z's wife".

let's hope those twins keep her busy and out of the light for a minute. Of course, he wants Beyonce. Because he knows its $$$, not that there's no one better.

Beyonce is old now. ugh!!! How much does she need? There are sooooooooooo many more talented people God created, who DESERVES for their gift to be enjoyed by the world. Beyonce done lasted 12 lifetimes and it's time for her to go.

This role was made for anika noni rose. Beyonce would be great for the soundtrack though.

Beyonce is not old! She just looks old as hell.

And I'm sick of people saying Beyonce is a good dancer. She just has rhythm and dances like any Ol' burlesque stripper. Janet, J.Lo, Ciara, Sevyn Streeters are real dancers.

10:42 ~ Yes, Anika would be perfect for the role! She's so underrated.
