Disney’s classic animated musical, The Lion King, is getting a live-action remake, and rumors are swirling that Beyoncé is set to star as Nala.
She is also reportedly going to be signing on to manage the soundtrack for the movie , which will include African-inspired music performed by the star and others. All of this is reportedly included in the whopping $25 million deal.
This has not yet been officially confirmed but was announced by TheBeyhiveTeam , which gets “exclusive” news from the singer’s camp. If it’s true, then Queen Bey can add The Lion King to her other musical performances: Dream Girls, for which she earned a Golden Globe Nomination; and Cadillac Records, which netted her a Grammy for her remake of Etta James‘ “At Last.”
