Beyoncé might provide the voice of Simba’s girlfriend Nala in the new “Lion King”. She’s director Jon Favreau’s top pick, and she’s considering it. But remember, she’s pregnant with twins.
Obviously, since it’s a voice role, there’s a lot more flexibility . . . and Disney and the director want her badly enough that they’ll do whatever’s necessary to work around her pregnancy.
Donald Glover is playing Simba, and James Earl Jones is returning to play his father Mufasa, just like he did in the 1994 original.
