Director of the upcoming movie, Jon Fravreau, has his sights set on Queen Bey for one of the film’s main characters.

Nala is Simba’s closest childhood friend in the film and is one of the lead roles in the Disney favourite.

Beyoncé is yet to respond to the offer due to her pregnancy taking priority over any future commitments.

But sources close to Disney have said they are willing to do ‘whatever it takes’ to get her on board.

They may have to work around her hectic schedule in order to ensure she’s a part of the future hit.


The ‘Formation’ singer is expecting twins with her husband Jay-Z.

The Hollywood couple’s family is ‘growing by two’, with daughter Blue Ivy, 5, becoming a big sister this June.

Beyoncé holds the record for the most ‘likes’ on Instagram following her announcement about pregnancy number two.

The 1994 classic film is the latest Disney animation to join the list of live-action remakes.
