Beyonce to Lend Voice to to Disney’s Live Action and CGI ‘Lion King’ Remake
Hakuna matata, Disney fans and BeyHive alike! As was previously rumored in the jungle, Beyonce will lend her voice (roar?) to Disney’s upcoming adaptation of its own 1994 smash, The Lion King.
The music mega-star will voice Nala. Rounding out the cast are Donald Glover (Simba), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa), Billy Eichner (Timon) and many more. The film will also include the voice talents of James Earl Jones, who played Simba’s dad, Mufasa, in the original film—because why mess with perfection?
