We are all anxiously awaiting the release of the remake of the Disney film, The Lion King and that is in no small part due to the amazing cast of characters we know will step foot (0r at least lend their voices) on the big screen to portray our favorite characters from the much-adored animal kingdom.
From Donald Glover as heroic Simba to John Oliver voicing the incessant Zazu, we know this movie is going to be top-notch. But Beyoncé voicing the strong and oh-so-fierce character of Nala might just be the best thing ever!
Beyoncé is clearly getting into the role and proved it by posting a stunning snapshot of herself all decked out in a lioness-inspired showstopper of an outfit. She looks unbelievable in full-body sequins and a lion’s head chest-piece, complete with a photorealistic face and a full feathered mane.
But you know who else is clearly pumped about her mama’s new role? Blue Ivy! The little star-in-the-making almost shows up her mom’s amazing look by impressing us with her own rendition of “Circle of Life” — and she’s got a pretty fantastic outfit herself. Who knows, maybe Blue Ivy will be in The Lion King on Broadway as young Nala when she gets just a little bit older.
Check out Beyoncé’s gorgeous lioness-inspired look and Blue Ivy’s impressive performance chops in the video.
