For $25 million.
Beyonce is reportedly in final negotiations to voice Nala in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of The Lion King.
No wonder Beyonce has ~allegedly~ hired six new nannies. Mama is getting back to work! The BeyHive is buzzing that Queen Bey is set to receive upwards of $25 million to lend her voice to the John Favreau-directed film. It is also believed Beyonce will executive produce the soundtrack which will feature several Afro-Tribal inspired original songs from the pop star. Singers who contributed music to the original are also being tapped for the soundtrack.
The chatter comes from a report by @TheBeyHiveTeam on Twitter. They have accurately reported on Beyonce’s professional plans in the past.
“We are excited to confirm that director Jon Favreau is getting his wish! Beyonce is currently in final negotiations to play Nala in Disney’s upcoming live action reboot of Lion King! Disney has reportedly agreed to pay a whopping $25 million to secure Beyonce’s involvement with the project,” their statement reads. “We can exclusively report from a source that one major clause in Beyonce’s contract is to be the curator & producer of the soundtrack which will include several new and original African inspired & tribal recordings by the singer, as well as classic Lion King favorites. A full promotional push including interviews, music videos, and a release to all psychical retailers and streaming platforms is expected. The soundtrack will be released worldwide through Parkwood Entertainment & Columbia Records (SONY).”
