So, apparently Disney giving the live-action remake treatment to The Lion King. Yay! But if your first reaction to this news is "why mess with perfection?" the answer is everything can get more perfect with the addition of Beyoncé, blessed be her name.

While Donald Glover is already on board to play Simba, Variety (opens in new tab) reports that Queen Bey is director Jon Favreau's first choice to play Nala.

It appears as though Beyoncé has already been approached by the Disney powers that be, and while she hasn't made a decision yet, the studio will reportedly do "whatever it takes" to accommodate her schedule.

Quick, form a prayer circle and make this happen.
