Beyoncé’s work with Disney may have only begun with her voicing Nala in the live-action version of The Lion King that came out last year. The Sun is reporting that Beyoncé allegedly is in talks with the House of Mouse to sign a $100 (£78.79) million deal to work on three major projects.
One of the films would be Black Panther 2; The Sun claims Bey would be part of the film’s soundtrack.
A source said, ‘Beyoncé has become a major player for Disney and is the perfect fit for their brand.’ It added that ‘as part of the deal, they are also trying to get her team to agree to have Beyoncé voicing some of the new documentaries coming to Disney Plus. After the success of having Meghan Markle voicing the film Elephant on the platform, they have projects coming up which align perfectly with Beyoncé’s brand. The negotiations are still ongoing but it’s the final details that are being thrashed out now.’
Beyoncé most recently graced Disney with her presence on ABC’s Disney Family Singalong special in April. During the special meant to honour those on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic, Bey shared a message to families before singing ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ from Pinocchio.
‘I’m proud and honoured to be part of the Disney family and to help present the Disney song singalong in partnership with Feeding America,’ Beyoncé prefaced the song. ‘I’d like to dedicate this song to all of the healthcare workers who have been working tirelessly to keep us healthy and safe. We greatly appreciate you.’
