TOP CHOICE: Beyoncé and the character of Nala

BEYONCE MAY be lured back to the big screen to voice the character of Nala in the live-action remake of ‘Lion King’, it has been revealed.

According to Variety, the superstar is the director John Favreau’s first choice to voice the role of Nala alongside Atlanta’s Donald Glover who was recently confirmed to voice Simba.

Beyoncé, while first and foremost known for selling out stadiums worldwide, has a number of film credits to her name including Dreamgirls, Austin Powers in Goldmember and, most recently, Fox animation Epic.

James Earl Jones will reprise the role of Mufasa for the film having voiced the character in the classic 1994 animation.

“Insiders stress that the Grammy winner has not made a decision regarding the film yet, as the star is pregnant with twins. But since it’s a voice-acting role, sources say the studio and director will do whatever it takes to accommodate her schedule,” Variety reported.

Lion King is being lined up for a 2018 release.
