Beyoncé is busy honey! It looks like when Queen Bey voiced Nala in the live-action version of The Lion King last year, it was just the beginning of a very lucrative deal with Disney. The Sun is reporting that Beyoncé reportedly is in talks with the House of Mouse to sign a $100 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.” They 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.” This would make sense, especially after the success of the film Elephant, which featued Meghan Markle voicing on the platform. According to the source, Disney has projects coming up which would 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, she shared a message to families before singing “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio. The special was to honor those on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic.
“I’m proud and honored 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.”
