Jennifer Hudson Wants To Star in Disney’s ‘Hercules’ Live Action Remake with Michael B. Jordan & Ariana Grande

Published: Thursday 9th Sep 2021 by Rashad

Longtime fans of Jennifer Hudson know before she traipsed across the ‘American Idol’ stage (and later GRAMMY and Academy Award stages) she first showed off her vocal chops on Disney cruise line productions of ‘Hercules.’

Fast forward a few decades later, the 39-year-old – currently raking in critical acclaim aplenty for her stunning portrayal of Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin in the biopic ‘Respect’ (in theaters now) – is looking to put on another crown by reprising her role as the lead muse, this time for Disney’s recently announced live action remake of the animated ‘Hercules’ (1997).

And though she’s previously made headlines for referencing the forthcoming film, this time she’s mentioning what other A-list stars she wants to bring along for the ride!  Hop inside to hear her wishlist for the movie’s cast – which includes fellow GRAMMY winner Ariana Grande and award-winning actor Michael B. Jordan.

    Can we just start talking about who is going to play the Muses and singing the intro theme song. My line up would be: J HUD, Amber Riley, Jazmine Sullivan, Yolonda Adams, and Lizzo.

    She was horrible as Aretha. That accent and the Effie White singing was throwing me waaaay off.
