Could Beyoncé Voice Nala in Upcoming Live-Action Version of "The Lion King"?

As if the creation of a live-action version of "The Lion King" — a film originally co-written by screenwriter and MAKER Linda Woolverton in 1994 — was not enough, the voices behind the cast may just be that much more exciting.

With Donald Glover signed on to voice Simba, and James Earl Jones ready to play Mufasa, we are left waiting for just one more important voice: Nala.

And who better to voice the queen of the jungle than Queen Bey herself? Though Beyoncé has yet to confirm the role, she is director Jon Favreau's first pick, "Variety" announced and since Favreau is willing to work around her increasingly busy schedule (since she has twins on the way), we can only hope she can find the time to gift us with her talent.

What do you think? Who would be your top choice to voice Nala in the upcoming remake of "The Lion King"?
