Beyoncé confirmed on Facebook yesterday that she has joined the all-star cast of Disney’s live-action The Lion King. She will take the role of Nala opposite Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) as Simba. Icon James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Musafa, Simba’s father & Alfre Woodard will voice Simba’s Mom Sarabi. Oscar-nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor is the villain, Scar, who killed Simba’s father Mufasa. And comedians Billy Eichner will play meerkat Timon while Seth Rogen voices Pumbaa.
I know right!? I can't wait either!!!
The only bad news? You’ll have to wait almost two years because the film is set for a July 19, 2019 release.
