Jon Favreau is directing the new “The Lion King” live-action reboot and he wants Beyoncé. Although the film does not yet have a release date, Donald Glover and James Earl Jones are attached as Simba and Mufasa. Now, they’re hoping Beyoncé will join the cast and voice the role of Nala, Simba’s childhood friend, wife, and Queen of the Pride Lands. Though Beyoncé just announced she is pregnant with twins, Favreau and the studio are willing to accommodate to her schedule. They are also willing to expand her character to include more songs since Nala is a relatively smaller role.
