We're in a day and age where live-action remakes of our favourite childhood movies is trendy AF, and we couldn't be more grateful.
The next epic classic on the list? The Lion King.
When Beauty and the Beast was announced, we were worried that an iconic film could be ruined. BUT, as it turned out, Emma Watson's interpretation of Belle, and Disney's skillz turned it into absolutely perfection. So we have very high hopes about what they'll do with The Lion King.
ESPECIALLY WHEN THIS HAPPENED!!!
Variety reports that Beyoncé freaking Knowles/Carter is director Jon Favreau's first choice to play Nala - the queen.
Donald Glover is already on board to play Simba, so like, how perfect would this casting be?! All we can hope for is that Bey will also jump on board.
