Disney wants Beyoncé to appear as Nala in their new live-action remake of 'The Lion King'.
The film’s director Jon Favreau, who is also an actor himself and famously appeared as Monica's mega rich boyfriend in season three of 'Friends', has reportedly approached the singer about doing the voice for the part of Nala, according to Variety magazine.
However, it's understood that Beyoncé, who is pregnant with twins, has yet to make up her mind about taking on the smallish role of Nala, who is Simba's childhood friend and future wife.
It's also being reported that the rapper Donald Glover will be the voice of Simba, but this has yet to be confirmed. While James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Simba's father.
