Beyoncé is the top choice to play the key voice role in the remake of Disney’s 1994 classic The Lion King movie.
Insiders stress that the Grammy winner has not made a decision regarding the film yet, as the star is pregnant with twins. But since it’s a voice-acting role, sources say the studio and director will do whatever it takes to accommodate her schedule.
Donald Glover is on board to voice Simba and James Earl Jones is reprising his role as Simba’s father, Mufasa.
Favreau is directing with Jeff Nathanson writing. The film is being fast-tracked, even as Favreau begins development on his sequel to the recent hit “The Jungle Book.”
Besides her music, Beyoncé is best known for her acting roles in Dreamgirls, The Pink Panther and Austin Powers In Goldmember. Her last voice role was in the 2013 movie Epic.
