Last summer saw Disney‘s live-action version of ‘The Lion King’ make an almighty roar at the box office. With many attributing Beyonce‘s involvement – as Nala – as one of the key drivers for the flick’s billion dollar domination.
It appears the media juggernaut agrees. Because, sources say Disney and Queen Bey are in “advanced talks” for a major partnership deal.
Full story below…
Per a new report, the singer is believed to be hashing out a $100 million, 3-project deal that would include her helming the ‘Black Panther 2’ soundtrack and involvement with new streamer Disney Plus.
Citing a source said to be close to the situation, T.S shared:
“Beyoncé has become a major player for Disney and is the perfect fit for their brand.
She’s worked on a number of projects for them, including voicing Nala in the reboot of The Lion King, and now they’re keen to secure her for more projects.
Disney have put forward a deal worth around $100 million (£80million), which will secure Beyoncé for three major projects, including the Black Panther sequel.
As part of the deal they are also trying to get her team to agree to have Beyoncé voicing some of the new documentaries coming to Disney Plus.
After the success of having Meghan Markle voicing the film Elephant on the platform, they have projects coming up which align perfectly with Beyoncé’s brand.”
Time will tell if this comes to fruition. But we know we’d be more than here for it.
The equity in Beyonce’s brand is undeniable at this point and is an asset in every sense of the term.
As epic as her career has been, it’s even more exciting anticipating what’s to come. Especially if she does indeed curate the ‘Black Panther 2’ soundtrack. A perfect pairing!
