Twitter Responds To Beyonce Being Cast As Nala In ‘The Lion King’ Reboot
Beyonce broke the internet (again) yesterday when Disney announced that she had been cast as Nala in their upcoming live action version of The Lion King. The game-changing diva is reportedly taking home a whopping $25 million check for her services, which has got to be some kind of record for voice acting. The film, which is scheduled to be released in 2019, boasts an all-star cast including Donald Glover, James Earl Jones, Alfre Woodard, Seth Rogan and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
The Lemonade hitmaker is currently off-cycle, but she’s still keeping busy with side-projects like this and her fund-raising feature on J Balvin & Willy William’s “Mi Gente.” The Latin smash recently peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100. She also lent her voice to a still-unreleased remix of Naughty Boy’s “Runnin’.” While we wait for new music and more info on The Lion King, check out the hilarious and extremely excited reactions to Queen Bey’s latest endeavor on social media below.
