Is Beyoncé Joining the New Cast of the 'Lion King'

Disney is working on rebooting another classic...and this time around it's Lion King.

Donald Glover has already signed on as Simba, and James Earl Jones is returning to play Mufasa like he did in the original. Now for Nala? Rumor has it that director, Jon Favreau, really wants Beyoncé to voice the female lead.


Since it's a voice role, there's a lot of flexibility and production wouldn't be affected by Beyoncé's pregnancy. Sources say that she's seriously considering it.
