It appears Beyoncé is heading back to the big screen. But unlike The Lion King, we’ll actually get to see—not just hear—the 38-year-old singer in action.
Beyoncé is reportedly in talks with Disney to sign a $100 million deal that encompasses three major projects, according to The Sun. The majority of the details are being kept under wraps, but we do know one of the potential movies is Black Panther 2.
“Beyoncé has become a major player for Disney and is the perfect fit for their brand,” a source told the outlet.
Unfortunately, we don’t know much about the Black Panther sequel. While Ryan Coogler is returning to direct and write the script, Marvel hasn’t officially confirmed any cast members.
In addition to Black Panther 2, Beyoncé will likely do more voiceover work. After the success of Meghan Markle’s Elephant, we wouldn’t be surprised if part of the deal included voicing a Disney+ documentary.
The “Lemonade” singer made her acting debut in 2003 when she appeared in Austin Powers in Goldmember. She most recently voiced Nala in Disney’s The Lion King remake and performed “When You Wish Upon a Star” in ABC’s Disney Family Singalong.
Who run the world? Still Beyoncé it seems.
