Beyonce Eyed For ‘Lion King’ Remake

Published: Friday 31st Mar 2017 by Sam

Beyonce is a proven draw – both on the charts and at the box office.

Indeed, beyond her otherworldly success as an artist, Queen Bey has made quite the mark on the big screen in films such as ‘Dreamgirls’ and  ‘The Pink Panther.’

Such is her pull the director of the ‘Lion King’ live-action remake is reportedly committed to securing her for the film.

Details below…

Variety revealed that Bey is director Jon Favreau‘s top choice to voice the role of Nala.

The star, who is heavily pregnant with twins, has not made a concrete decision just yet, but all involved are said to making whatever accommodations necessary to ensure she’s on-board.

Should the 35-year-old sign on, she’d be in revered company.

Donald Glover is confirmed to voice Simba, while James Earl Jones will reprise his role of his father Mufasa.

Originally released in 1994, the ‘Lion King’ is one of the highest-grossing animated films of all time – amassing $968.5 million worldwide.

The news comes as no surprise given Disney’s blockbuster success with live-action adaptations of late. Case in point titles such as ‘Alice in Wonderland’ (2010), ‘Maleficent’ (2014), ‘Cinderella’ (2015), and, most recently, ‘Beauty and the Beast.’

      Bey can barely put together a sentence or write her own songs.

      • What a Jock! March 31, 2017

        What a way to ruin a classic. Beyonce wants to be taken seriously as an actress. That’s why she moved to LA. Bless her heart.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) March 31, 2017

      This is not about RIHANNA no-existent vocals sis….Wrong post.

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 March 31, 2017

      Stay mad….. Beyoncé is coming to slay with the twins strapped to her back!

    • Tokyo Vanity fan (formerly new) March 31, 2017

      Don’t worry Rihanna will be the first choice if they somehow write a goat into the story.

      • Baddiebeymyfav April 1, 2017


    • Amethyst March 31, 2017

      Since Hollywood is actively involving LGBTQ characters, I think Beyonce should play a transgender female Lion. Beyonce’s voice sounds like Amiyah Scott.

  2. DanYiel Iman March 31, 2017

    That’s would be awesome ??, she has the sound that would suit a lion ?…

    • Koochie Cat March 31, 2017

      Absolutely delusional. Beyonce doesn’t have any qualities like Nala. Clearly you haven’t seen the Lion King.

  3. MusicLife March 31, 2017

    No thank you. I don’t want a remake period but definitely not without seasoned actors. Meaning no big name celebs in music or sports to play or voice roles just to bring in attention. This story doesn’t need that if we have to remake it at all.

    • JOHNVIDAL March 31, 2017

      All these remakes are pointless I agree. The magic is not the same when it is not new. But hey they just want to make some money at the box office. None of these new live action versions are making any impact. Impact is made when something is NEW, apart from great of course.

  4. Mariah Carey March 31, 2017

    I think I’d make an amazing Scar

    • JOHNVIDAL March 31, 2017

      LOL Yaaas Mariah!

  5. Mother March 31, 2017

    I’m not here for this at all. Her speaking voice is deep as hell chile ? Mess

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 March 31, 2017

      Just like your face and your life! Stay mad!

  6. TrellBeyLike March 31, 2017

    Of course her haters gonna hate lol but this is dope! She would be great. Its funny how these seasoned professionals are calling for bey while u peasants stay mad. Boss up.

  7. Suicide Blonde is 35 March 31, 2017


    • JOHNVIDAL March 31, 2017

      Now that´s where stans from different fan bases start the delusions. Beyonce is not responsible for those numbers. She has been in a few successful films that would have been successful without her too. There´s a big differece. And this goes for any other singer who tries acting (most of the times). Same way the new version of The Lion King will be a big success with or without her lending her voice.

  8. BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 March 31, 2017

    Haha….. The girls are mad! You thought just because Beyoncé pregnant she isn’t making moves behind the scenes. Quiet as its kept Beyoncé listening to new music & her team plotting her next sold out tour. These twins are gonna be strapped on her back to her work just like Blue. Go Yonce!

  9. Surprise..(DEC 2013) March 31, 2017

    The girls are bitter and angry….Meanwhile RIHANIMAL who can’t sing and sounds like a dying hyena was just cast in an upcoming musical with Adam Driver…

    • OhhNoNotYouAgain March 31, 2017

      Maybe Rihanna Will play One Of The Scar’s Hyenas & Slay The Singing Parts

  10. Koochie Cat March 31, 2017

    Beyonce’s voice is manly. Whos idea is this? Lmao

  11. No March 31, 2017

    She is a horrible actress and the most over rated singer ever.


    LOOOOL!!!!! LMAOOOOOO!!!!! The movie will get a 18+ rating in Russia. They gon think Nala is a transgender. ?

  13. JOHNVIDAL March 31, 2017

    The Lion King is actually the second most successful animated film of all time adjusted by inflation. After Snowhite. Frozen and the likes can´t compare. Plus that soundtrack… Disney´s best imo. Hans Zimmer… I mean, he is a genious for scores (The Drak knight, Inception, Interstellar…). My very favorite composer.

  14. Rima March 31, 2017

    Wow what a way to ruin a classic.

  15. Gizmodjo March 31, 2017

    I actually think she fits right into the movie, role and the cast overall.

    This is a good move.

  16. whiteboi March 31, 2017

    The haters are mad their ugly m***** fave Rihanna didn’t get asked. LOL!

  17. Rima March 31, 2017

    Its just sad that they’ll give such an iconic role to some uneducated manly sounding hoodrat. Beyonce is one of the worst actresses ever. Let me get this petition started real quick.

  18. Suicide Blonde March 31, 2017

    The delusion.

  19. Grape Nutz March 31, 2017

    She sounds illiterate when she speaks. It’s sad that so many idolize this uneducated woman. Find better role models !

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 March 31, 2017

      Stay mad! She will get the part… Now bet that!

  20. OhhNoNotYouAgain March 31, 2017

    The Hate Comments Are HILARIOUS!!! LMFAO You All Are So Mad, It’s Givin’ Me An Ab Workout! I Think Beyoncé Got Inspired From Watchin’ Beauty & The Beast With Blue. Since The Twins Are Comin’, Beyoncé Wants To Entertain The Kids The Best Way Possible.

    • OhhNoNotYouAgain March 31, 2017

      So Basically It’s Not For You Hatin’ Trollups To Like. She’s Doin’ It For her Kids!

  21. Truthteller March 31, 2017

  25. Truthteller March 31, 2017

    Keep trying just like begging for wonder woman, a star is born, thisbfake is just obsessed with fame what a loser, a color struck, divisive, poison peddling, bootyshaking blonde wannabe

    She is the worst artist ever her lyrics are awful

  26. Mark111 /.\ March 31, 2017

    Not on my watch. Her voice acting is horrible and so is her acting. I’m sure she’s for the soundtrack.

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler March 31, 2017

      Your faves voice is horrible. One of the worst vocalist out right now to be completely honest.

      • Truthteller March 31, 2017

        The general public doesnt think so, stay deluded

  27. Queen Of Billboard (Barb) March 31, 2017

    This is a damn joke right?

  28. Amethyst March 31, 2017

    No ma’am. Beyonce sounds like Amiyah Scott.

  29. Amethyst March 31, 2017

    Beyonce sucked in Dream girls too. Glad Jennifer Hudson stole her shine.

  30. King B March 31, 2017

    They are mad! Don’t worry, Beyoncé is most likely gonna reject this, like she did with other things. She already gave one movie role and one festival to Gaga. Maybe she could give this to Rih. Charity queen!

    • Mark111 March 31, 2017

      Rihanna is the better voice actress.

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler March 31, 2017

        Rihanna isnt “better” at anything voice related. She sounds like a bag of goats.

      • .:: Centurion ::. March 31, 2017

        A bag of goats that Hollywood keeps hiring in big budget films unlike that dumb performing arts dropout that sounds like she’s on hormone treatment readying for gender reassignment surgery.

  31. .:: Centurion ::. March 31, 2017

        Pedóphile supporter, behind the scenes bully, Grammyless, #1 Hitless! Those are all the things your fav is. Bye now! I’ve wasted enough time on a peasant! ☺?

      • Queen Of Billboard (Barb) March 31, 2017

        Maybe Bey should do a track with Ed shereen or Taylor swift we all know your fave likes to jump on other artist bandwagon to stay popular.

  33. Meteorite March 31, 2017

    Christina made a Lion King reference when she and Will Ferrell were on Jimmy Fallon last year. She hit that intro note from the opening credits of the movie

    • truth teller April 1, 2017

  34. Truthteller March 31, 2017

  35. Truthteller March 31, 2017

    Delusions of grandeur

    Such a user parasite thief

    • Queen Of Billboard (Barb) March 31, 2017

  36. MsYonce March 31, 2017

    Lmaooo the Queen got the girls shook and it’s not even official yet. I really hope she takes it. “Rihanna is the better voice actress lmaooooooooo” I think the f*** not. But look at these rats who claim they were finish with this site all back to hate on Bey lol the obsession is real

    • Truthteller March 31, 2017


      Exhibit 750000000001

      • MsYonce March 31, 2017

        Facts are facts and you will deal

  37. MsYonce March 31, 2017

    Anyways I Hope she takes this role she would do amazing. After listening to her reciting those poems on Lemonade I can already tell she’s better at acting and those acting classes she took paid off. On Lemonade she gave us a spoken word performance Hun and it was amazing, she made her voice llight when it needed to be so yes she can do this and y’all can stay mad about it

    • Suicide Blonde March 31, 2017

      Something that she borrowed from Madonna’s book (she’s been low key borrowing from her ever since she dropped the self titled album) but failed miserably, her spoken voice is just a big ?, listen to Madonna reciting a poem and then listen to Beyoncé trying to do the same, it’s actually hilarious, even Lana’s monologue from her ‘Ride’ music video shits in Beyoncé’s try hard attempts at reciting poems.

      • MsYonce March 31, 2017

        I don’t give a damn about Madonna you can go now

      • Francis March 31, 2017

        You’re such a hater, I can’t understand why you still come to this blog, always criticizing most of the artists they post about and I think Beyoncé did something terrible to you, you really hate her. Jesus!

  38. Truthteller March 31, 2017

    shame illiterate hive don’t even know difference between an opinion and a fact


  39. RealNegro March 31, 2017

    Why is Beyonce so polarizing? Who does she have so many haters. I swear we build them up just to tear them down. Jay Z said it best, “Most Kings get their heads cut off.” So sad.

    • truth teller March 31, 2017

      She earned them with her lies, theft, braggadoisous, down talking, poison spewing, colorism…yuck!

      dwhat is there truly to like, her music sucks, her looks, her body everyvody isn’t supercfical and substance is returning to the community

      beyonce and jay zero are trash

      • truth teller March 31, 2017

        Her kamp called people dark b***, mud b*** for over a decade

        noone is obligated to like them

  40. 4u2see March 31, 2017

    Hating on beyonce, how is that going to help someone’s life? I’ll wait…. She just don’t do it for some people. Sorry, I like the lion king and I’m going to check it out it no matter who’s on it. Don’t care, real hair. Good luck!

  41. truth teller March 31, 2017

    Engaging in a critical analysis of the impact and effect of these two ‘artist’ on young impressionalble minds is not hating.

    Beyonce is a net negative to a young impressionable mind

    young minds need to be encourage to go to schooo, be modest for their own sagfety , beyonce is for grown audicences sadly young people have gotten the wrong idea and a skewed value system, because they are impressionalbe

    We all have a responsibilty, including beyonce and she sold hers out for er personal gain while spewing very harmeful messages back into the community and no she gets no respect or adulation from me nor hate this ismhy opinion, my analysi and I can share it

    even this ‘hate’ nonsenxe has had a retarding effect on the community who now don’t even know how to have a discussion, dissect, analyse for fear of being a ‘hater’

    call me what you will you will never stifle my mind

    • stardom April 1, 2017

      You’re such an imbecile.

  42. truth teller April 1, 2017

    Mind control tacxtic exhhibit 230000940052

    When using your own mind, an industry shill bascially bullies through name calling, attempts at shaming

    NO other artist has this energy around them except beyonce and jay zero

    Their onw deeds will be their demise, carry on illustrating the bullying tactics of this brand; sadly our weaker younger minded members have succumbed to this and as a result are not using their full brain capacity

    Folks are supposed to like this, respect this, tolerate this….again, the community is waking jup to the fraud, c***, agents

    carryon please!

  43. One of those tran dayz April 3, 2017

    I don’t think this is true it could possibly be a rumor in my option
