The Queen B is now part of one of my favorite movies and I'm beaming! Beyonce was cast as the voice of lioness Nala, Simba's friend and lover which will be played by Donald Glover.
Fans were rumoring about this for a while and Beyonce confirmed rumors on her Facebook. Needless to day, the beehive was all over it! Below full cast and some reactions to Bey's new role!
The film is scheduled for release July 2019.

I am glad the Lion King is being rebooted so we can remember Scar can only be President for so long before Beyoncé shows up & fixes it— Aparna Nancherla (@aparnapkin) November 2, 2017
