Beyonce The Top Choice For “Lion King”

Beyonce is reportedly director Jon Favreau’s top choice to voice Nala in the upcoming live-action remake of “The Lion King” at Disney Pictures.

Donald Glover is on board to voice Simba and James Earl Jones is reprising his role as Simba’s father Mufasa in the film. Beyonce has reportedly not made a decision regarding the film yet, but with her pregnancy the studio and director will reportedly do whatever it takes to accommodate her schedule.

If she does it, it would mark Beyonce’s first film role since lending her voice to the Fox animated film “Epic”. Favreau is directing from a script by Jeff Nathanson with the film being fast-tracked to be Favreau’s next.
