Donald Glover Dishes On Recording With Beyonce For ‘The Lion King’

Published: Wednesday 16th May 2018 by Sam

Disney‘s ‘The Lion King’ roars back onto the big screen in 2019 and is already one of the most anticipated releases in recent memory.

One of major reasons is its all-star cast, which is anchored by Donald Glover and Beyonce – who appear as Simba and Nala respectively.

With Glover currently on the press run for current movie ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story,’ he was quizzed about what it’s been like working with Queen Bey.

Find out what he had to say below…

To say we’re anticipating this would be a colossal understatement!

Because besides the inevitable visual slayage to come, the music component has us salivating.

For, this live-action remake will see Bey and co tackle classic songs from the original while contributing new numbers.

Bring it on!

    You can hate or like it’s up to you, but you are not neutral to it. Bye

      You can’t hate or like sorting that is not released yet. I am indifferent to the remake concept so I am neutral to the concept but open to viewing the movie and hearing the music. The original was so classic and Elton John did a super great job on the music.

    I’m curious because Nala was more of a supporting character when she grew up so I wonder how they will make this part more important this time because I’m sure Beyonce didn’t sign up to do a few lines and one or two ensemble songs.

      You never know.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 16, 2018

      Beyonce did “Epic” where she played the Queen of the fairies and she was definitely even less than a supporting character in that. Nala will remain Nala and as we all know, unfortunately female lions are not main characters in lion prides so I’m pretty sure she’ll remain the same supporting character she did in the cartoon. Beyoncé’s not strong enough of an actress to do anything more than that anyway, she sounded so bad in Epic. She knows her acting abilities (or lack of) and plays to them well.

    So its Donald’s interview just mentioning Beyonce and you use her picture as if she did it?

    ???EVERYONE by now should realize that it’s industry practice for celebs to only sing Beyonce’s Freakin praises when quizzed about “working with her”. to say anything less would almost be career s******. Beyonce is a terrible actress & was only brought on for namesake. she will fill box office seats & push the sale of this damn soundtrack. OF COURSE he says “good things”. these mindless industry sheep do it now out of habit. It’s almost REQUIRED and EXPECTED to kiss her overrated ass!

    • gina May 16, 2018

      Its not “career s******” to say anything against that b*tch. Plenty of celebrities don’t kiss her ass and their careers are just fine. She can’t act, and that’s a known fact, and the movie is already destined to pull in major bucks because its already an established franchise, her name MIGHT help push the soundtrack sales (which is debatable because she’s still struggling to sell 2 million pure copies of her own music). He’s not gonna say anything negative because he’s part of the movie in general, has nothing to do with beyonces overrated non-acting ass lol.

      • B2B May 16, 2018

        I love how y’all wanna discuss pure sales when Beyonce is brought up. Your fav will never sell 1 million pure again, but Yonce will!

  5. Achooo! May 16, 2018

    This is a terrible idea

  6. ??? May 16, 2018

    lmao i hope theyre ready to take that L from the critics, everybody knows roach cant act, her pimp camel got her into this movie lmfaooo
