"The Lion King" Director on Working With Beyonce

May 31, 2019

In December 2017, Ben Pearson drove to Playa Vista, California to visit the set of Disney’s The Lion King. Much of the set visit was spent discussing the technical aspects of how the film was coming together, but the talk with director Jon Favreau was a bit more personal. He explained why he wanted to make this movie, what speaks to him about this story, crafting the tone of the movie, how different this is from the animated version, this film’s music, and why he cast Donald Glover and Beyonce in the lead roles. Read the highlights of the interview below.

Working With Beyonce
“She’s busy,” the director laughed when asked about working with one of the world’s biggest superstars. “She has babies, she has albums, she goes on tour, her husband goes on tour. So she’s logistically trickier than some of the other cast members. Half of that role is singing, too, so that definitely made us feel that we had the right choice there. And then she had really prepared. She’s a very hard worker, it’s no surprise that she has had success in so many areas and if you look at Lemonade, you see really understands filmmaking, too, and is very curious and innovative. Once it finally became human scale and it was just us in the studio, she was great and she had even prepared a lot of the stuff ahead of time. This is a process, which is nice, because it really concentrates the time. She doesn’t have to sit in a trailer waiting for a camera to be ready. When it’s her, it’s all about her and I get to focus on her performance and getting to know her and then I get to go off and work with the camera people. So it has informed it and I try to get to know my cast members and have what ultimately ends up in the animation and visuals reflect who they are. Even if it’s not obvious on the surface, it definitely inspires me in the way I conceive it.”

New "The Lion King" Trailer & Nala Poster

How Jon Favreau's The Lion King landed Beyoncé

April 28, 2019

Mufasa isn’t the only reigning royal in these Pride Lands.

The internet collectively bowed down when, in November 2017, Disney confirmed that Beyoncé Knowles-Carter had joined the cast of Jon Favreau’s photo-real virtual-production remake of The Lion King. The music icon plays Nala, the childhood friend of Simba (Donald Glover) who re-encounters the exiled prince in adulthood, now as a fully-grown, powerful, unquestionably indomitable lioness.

So, how did Favreau convince a queen to get in formation with this King?

“I’ve got the Beyhive in my house,” chuckles the director, who wasn’t specifically aware that the singer was in play for the role until he reached out to her on a casting whim. “I’ve seen her live and she’s a unique talent, to say the least,” he says. “And when I finally spoke to her after reaching out, although her persona onstage is bigger than life, she’s very down to earth and is very much dedicated to her family and having a life that is human-scale.”

That, Favreau reasons, helps to explain why Knowles-Carter (as she’s being officially credited in the film) agreed to play Nala, which marks her first feature film role since 2013’s animated Epic (and prior to that, 2009’s Obsessed). “I think that part of it is that she’s got young kids, part of it is that it’s a story that feels good for this phase of her life and her career — it’s a very positive story, it’s a classic that a lot of people feel very emotionally invested in — and I think she just really likes the original very much,” says Favreau. “At the end of the day, she’s also an actor and it’s a great bunch of people to work with and a project that I think she felt was going to be special. And then of course, there are these wonderful musical numbers that she can be involved with, and my God… she really lives up to her reputation as far as the beauty of her voice and her talent.”

With the success of Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, A Star is Born, it’s hard to imagine any other actors portraying the roles of Jack and Ally other than Cooper and Lady Gaga. But at one point in time, Beyonce and Clint Eastwood were the stars of the show.

“There was a moment where that was the best version of the movie and then all of a sudden, Beyonce got pregnant. Do we wait?” Bill Gerber, the film’s producer told The Hollywood Reporter. “She was amazing about all this stuff. She always understood if we were going to take a different direction. And then Clint went off and did another movie.”

Speaking on the first meeting of Beyonce and Eastwood, Gerber explained, “I’m sitting there thinking, ‘I think I’m watching something historic about to happen,’ and then it didn’t. It’s just the movie business.”
The newly released Documentary "Girls Tyme - Making a Child of Destiny (The Andretta Tillman Story)," shares never before seen interviews from key people who influenced Beyoncé and Destiny's Child on their rise to fame. The documentary includes clips of rare unseen performance footage of the Flawless star and the rest of her Girls Tyme crew.

Produced from largely previously unreleased footage and personal interviews, the documentary examines Andretta Tillman's life as the driving force in launching Queen Beyoncé and Destiny's Child's legendary careers, as well as many other Houstonian artists, who also rose to fame under Andretta's management.

"We felt an obligation to show the world the true impact of Andretta's irreplaceable contribution to the success of Queen Bey and her Destiny's Child band mates. We opened the vault of Andretta Tillman's estate to provide the viewer with an understanding that, what you see Beyoncé and Destiny's Child doing on stage today, was rooted in them through Andretta's irreplaceable influence and tutelage, from way back in the early 1990's as young ladies in Girls Tyme. Where they are today, is a direct result of the solid foundation Andretta Tillman taught them." cited Executive Producer of the documentary, Brian "Kenny" Moore (from whose book the documentary evolved).

"We at Dousic are delighted to have secured a partnership with Amazon to ensure the documentary reaches the masses. We are giving Beyoncé and Destiny's Child fans an up-close look at the excitement, distresses and sacrifices made to elevate the band to stardom, by revealing the hidden part of their story of Andretta's enormous contribution and sacrifice that has not been told, or has hitherto been omitted," said Michael Ferguson, Executive VP of Dousic Media Group.

The documentary features interviews with Gospel great Kathy Taylor, Original Girls Tyme/Destiny's Child members Nina and Niki Taylor. Former Co-manager Kenny Moore, Hip Hop Producer Cory Mo, Former Rap a Lot recording group Flajj, Destiny's Child first choreographer Harlon Bell, and members of Andretta Tillman's family.

The pair created one of the most memorable movie soundtracks ever for The Lion King 25 years ago.

And now Sir Elton John will be returning to the studio with theatre legend Tim Rice — as well as superstar Beyonce — for Disney’s live-action remake.

The Sun revealed last month that Bey had reached out to Elton to ask if they could work on the soundtrack together and now the Rocket Man has confirmed that they intend to collaborate on a new song for the eagerly anticipated movie.

In an exclusive interview, Elton told the Sun: “They need to have a new end credits song.

"There’s going to be four of our songs in the film, from the original: Can You Feel The Love Tonight? Hakuna Matata, I Just Can’t Wait To Be King and Circle of Life.

“And then there will be an end, closing song, and we’ve been speaking to Beyonce’s people and hopefully Tim and I and her can cook up something.

“That’s going out in 2019 as well. And it will be great to work with her. So we will see.”
Billy Eichner might want to start practicing his scales because the Billy on the Street star just revealed he's going to sing with Beyoncé in the 2019 remake of The Lion King.

E! News' Jason Kennedy caught up with Eichner at the 2017 American Music Awards and asked him about being cast in the live-action film.

"I was freaking out," Eichner told the E! News host. "I mean, the cast is amazing. Me and Seth Rogen are Timon and Pumbaa, so we do ‘Hakuna Matata' and then we also sing ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight' with Simba and Nala, who are going to be voiced by Donald Glover and someone who is named Beyoncé."

Even though the comedian and the Lemonade singer will both be featured in the Elton John hit, Eichner wondered if he'll even get to meet the Grammy-winning artist in-person.

"Why would she want to be in the studio with me?" he said.

In addition to Eichner, Beyoncé, Rogen and Glover, the live-action remake will feature James Earl Jones as Mufasa, John Oliver as Zazu and Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari. The film will be directed by Jon Favreau, who also worked on the 2016 remake of The Jungle Book.
Beyoncé — as close as any modern artist to royalty status in American pop music — will play the queen to be of the Pride Lands in Disney’s coming live-action remake of “The Lion King.”

The studio confirmed Tuesday that she will voice the role of Nala, opposite Donald Glover’s Simba, in the classic coming-of-age tale set among the animal kingdom of the African savanna.

The star-studded cast will also include James Earl Jones — reprising his role as Mufasa from the 1994 animated version — Chiwetel Ejiofor in the part of Scar, and a new spin on a vintage odd couple: Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumbaa.

The new “King” will make a play for a box office coronation in July 2019. It will join a string of live-action adaptations (with a healthy dose of state-of-the-art visual effects) that have been reliable hits for Disney in recent years, following “Beauty and the Beast” this year, “The Jungle Book” in 2016 and “Cinderella” in 2015. Jon Favreau, who helmed the recent “Jungle Book,” will direct. Read more...
While the actresses in 2001's cult hit Josie and the Pussycats only sang backing vocals for Letters to Cleo singer Kay Hanley, filmmakers apparently had a number of notable musicians audition for the film -- including Beyoncé Knowles, who would later become one of the biggest stars on the planet.

The revelation came as part of an interview with Billboard, who were speaking with directors Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan as well as star Rachael Leigh Cook and Hanley ahead of a concert Tuesday night in Los Angeles in which Hanley played songs from the Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack for the first time live.

“The list of people who auditioned to be in the movie. The fact that Beyoncé, Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes and Aaliyah came in to audition was crazy,” Elfont said. “I think it was 2000. We read Left Eye twice. She really wanted to play the part. Beyoncé was really quiet and shy. Who knew? It was a comedy and Aaliyah was more serious and thoughtful. We wanted someone who could really play the comedy.”

When the film was in production, Beyoncé would have been well-known as a part of Destiny's Child but wasn't the global phenom that she would later become.

Had she won the role of Valerie Brown -- eventually played in the film by Rosario Dawson -- the band's meteoric rise in the film would likely have turned into a metaphor for Beyoncé herself in the years following the film's release and subsequent box office failure. Read more...
