I realize that during the Grammys earlier this year is that Beyonce, the queen of our time, placed a spell on all of us in the middle of her Offering to the Goddess performance when she gazed into the camera like “Love Me..Join Tidal… I COMMAND YOU!!” But that shit don’t work on me, because I don’t drink the damn lemonade. I prefer my ice to caress whiskey and honestly, I don’t even need the ice. So go hypnotize someone else, sistah!
Still, the spell worked on a few people (like Adele, who damn near somersaulted on stage to present Queen Bey with her Grammy on a bended knee). And director Jon Favreau is also ready to hand over stacks of cash for her to voice Nala in an upcoming live-action remake of The Lion King.
Mufasa lives! Or, rather, Mufasa will live AGAIN, until that catty queen Scar engineers his tragic death in a live-action film, The Lion King.
Director Jon Favreau, fresh off his live-action The Jungle Book, is giving Simba, Pumbaa, Rafiki, and those angel-dusted hyenas the similar treatment (there are no original ideas in Hollywood). Jon revealed the voice-casting of Donald Glover as Simba, and Mufasa himself, James Earl Jones, via Twitter this week.
