As a card-carrying member of the BeyHive, I'm totally freaking out right now.
According to Variety, Beyoncé is in talks to voice Nala in Disney's [upcoming] live-action remake of The Lion King.
Queen Bey is reportedly director Jon Favreau's "top choice" for the role -- and Disney is willing to do "whatever it takes" to accommodate her schedule and make it happen.
I really hope Beyonce takes that role for Nala in The Lion King omg.— Kiaya Mcqueen (@KiayaNashell) March 31, 2017
And just saying, while Beyoncé simply voicing Nala's dialogue is amazing, can you imagine how incredible the music/soundtrack is going to sound with her vocals?!

Other members of the cast have already been announced.
Simba will be played by Donald Glover -- and James Earl Jones has confirmed that he will return to reprise his role as Mufasa.
What do you think about all of this?!
Unsure of the idea of a Lion King remake, but it does have Donald Glover, James Earl Jones and maybe even Beyonce so...— Aoife Lannon (@HopefulGinger) March 31, 2017
