Disney wants to continue working with Beyonce and she is on the verge of securing another bag. Who wouldn’t want to work with Queen for an extended period?
After Queen Bey contributed to the success of The Lion King live-action remake, sources told The Sun that Disney is offering the megastar big bucks to be a part of original films in the future. Beyonce portrayed Nala in the classic redo that has grossed over $1 billion in ticket sales worldwide since its July 17 release date, according to CNBC. The Sun reports that Disney hopes to give the “Lemonade” singer/songwriter “free reign” on future projects.
Beyonce also created and produced the 14-song soundtrack for the film, Lion King: The Gift, that featured Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, and her daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
Details of the Disney deal have yet to be released, but the report said talks were “on-going,” and knowing how Bey does business, there is sure to be some millions involved.
In April Beyonce Knowles-Carter dropped her Homecoming documentary with Netlfix that gave a behind the scenes look at her history-making 2018 Coachella performance. After its success, Netlfix reportedly offered the 37-year-old mother of three a $60 million deal for more content.
Blue Ivy’s momma joins her husband Jay-Z in the movie-venture game as it was announced last week that Hov will be producing a forthcoming crime thriller for Netflix titled The Harder they Fall.
