"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.”

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.”

'Star Is Born' Producer on Why Beyonce, Clint Eastwood Remake Never Happened

November 11, 2018

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.”

Amazon Releases Destiny's Child Documentary

February 23, 2018

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.

Tim Rice joins Elton John & Beyonce for Lion King soundtrack

February 11, 2018

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 to Sing With Beyoncé in Lion King

November 20, 2017

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 Joins ‘Lion King’ Remake

November 2, 2017

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.

Beyonce Auditioned For 'Josie and the Pussycats'

September 28, 2017

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.

Q: When you were voicing your character, did you still go to the studio glamorously dressed? —Joyce O., Buffalo

A: Absolutely! I had to become Queen Tara, and she’s glamorous and strong. I’ve always wanted to play a queen. And she’s more than that; she’s fierce and powerful.

Q: If you had to describe yourself in four words, what would they be? —Anne E., Pawtucket, R.I.

A: Let’s see … loyal, ambitious, adventurous, and loving.

Q: Did becoming a mother make you closer to your mom? —Monica B., Lawrence, Kan.

A: We’ve always been close, but now I really appreciate everything she’s taught me, and I pass her life lessons along to my daughter . She’s a great mother and grandmother.

Q: Which artist would you like to perform a duet with? —Kathy W., Seaford, N.Y.

Q: What’s your favorite food on tour? —Tim R., Aledo, Tex.

A: Since I dance onstage for two hours every day, sometimes I can have my favorite—pizza!

Online Extra: What’s her greatest accomplishment?

“My greatest accomplishment is giving birth to my beautiful daughter,” she says.
A vocalist, songwriter, fashion designer, model, actress and a tabloid icon, Beyonce is one of the busiest and most financially successful artists in the world, found near the top of every list accounting for power and influence among celebrities and artists, hence having an audience with her is a challenging endeavour, so I was delighted to have a 20 minute interview.

The rendezvous was set for 4.30pm at the Corinthia Hotel, in London, one of Beyonce’s stops on her Mrs. Carter show world tour. On my way to the conference room from the hotel’s lobby, I encounter security guards at every door. At one room, I see a crew busily unpacking photography equipment from a mountain of boxes and hauling it into the conference room, where they have literally built a photo studio, as if we were going to do a fashion shoot. You see, Beyonce doesn’t allow anyone to take her photo other than her own photographers.

Entering the room, I am greeted by her representatives with a ticket for her concert tonight, an elegant handbag that contained Beyonce’s brand perfume and served a Pepsi drink -Beyonce has $50 million dollar promotion deal with Pepsi. I am also reminded that once I entered the room, I woudn’t be able to leave it. I acquiesce contently- a decision that I soon regret.

I endure waiting over 90 frustrating minutes for Beyonce. The chilled Pepsi fails to quench my discomfiture, so her people, who keep promising that she is on her way, try vainly to numb my displeasure with more potent drinks, including high quality wine. Finally, someone says that she has just got out of her chair, and is heading to the lift, which sound promising. Read more...
Beyoncé, one of the most widely recognized and highly respected women in pop culture, has created an original song, "RISE UP" for the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios motion picture, EPIC, for which she also voices one of the lead characters. The song, performed by Beyoncé, is written by Beyoncé and Sia and produced by Hit-Boy and Chase N. Cashe. The track will be released by Columbia Records.

EPIC is a 3D CG adventure comedy that reveals a fantastical world unlike any other. From the creators of ICE AGE and RIO, EPIC tells the story of an ongoing battle between the forces of good, who keep the natural world alive, and the forces of evil, who wish to destroy it. When a teenage girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she teams up with an elite band of warriors and a crew of comical, larger-than-life figures, to save their world...and ours.

Beyoncé voices the leader of this magical world -- Queen Tara. Beautiful, agile and strong, Tara isn't just the Leafmen's Queen; she's the life force of the forest, which she presides over with respect, compassion and humor.

Other members of voice cast are Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Christophe Waltz, Aziz Ansari, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis and rock legend Steven Tyler.

EPIC charges into theaters nationwide on May 24, 2013 and internationally beginning May 16, 2013.


Now on her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, Beyonce is on top of the music world, and the singer/actress is also taking on the role of Queen Tara in the upcoming animated film, "EPIC."

In an interview with ABC News' Amy Robach on the London leg of her tour, Beyonce talked about her latest role, married life and how shocked she was at the outcry over her recent trip to Cuba. Read more...
A brand new trailer for the movie "Epic" featuring Beyonce as Queen Tara was just released. Watch it below and visit the gallery to see a photo of the singer recording the voice for the character in the studio.



Beyonce proved a huge draw for HBO on Saturday night.

The intimate documentary about the singer, Beyonce: Life is But a Dream, pulled 1.8 million viewers during its inaugural outing at 9 p.m. ET. It's the largest audience for a HBO doc since Nielsen revised its method of measuring viewership in 2004.

The only other documentary to approach Beyonce's haul was previous record-setter When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts. The Spike Lee miniseries about the devastation caused to New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina earned 1.7 million viewers in 2006.

Life is But a Dream's handsome haul pulled three times the ratings of recent first-runs for HBO's Sunday series Girls.
Lights, Camera, Beyoncé!

The day has finally come for fans to take an intimate sneak peek inside the life of one of the world’s most successful superstars. Beyoncé’s highly anticipated HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream, debuts today, and we can. not. wait.
In Touch sat down for a Q&A session with Ed Burke, the film's co-director, who dished about the singer’s family, privacy and performances. So what does he really think of Queen B? Find out below.

IT: What kind of guidelines or boundaries did Beyoncé give you for this film?
EB: “It was a really open creative process. We co-directed it together and she was really hands on. It was very strange— it was two years in the making, but it was the last two weeks is where it really landed. It was so fast, we did it without an interview first, which is very challenging to do. We then did our interview post pregnancy when she was in a completely different place and it balanced out everything.

IT: How has motherhood changed her?
EB: “I would say she’s happier. She seems to be more grounded — and I know they always say ‘kids are the best thing for you,’ but I got to say, it’s true in this case.”

IT: And what about Jay Z?
EB: “Well they are an amazing family. They’re very private about their personal life but he is an amazing father and husband and he actually makes me think about my relationship with my wife —that’s how good he is. It’s the most surprising thing in the whole documentary that he let some of that stuff go. He’s in there doing some beautiful things as a husband and as a father.” Read more...
HBO: What made you decide to make a documentary?

BEYONCÉ: I decided to make a documentary for a number of reasons.

First of all, I just wanted to cut through the noise. We live in a celebrity-obsessed culture where there's a lot of information traveling and a lot of talk, but if you really take a look you'll see that for the most part, it's not me doing the talking. Making a documentary was a chance to show who I am and what I really care about.

And it was a new experience for me and an opportunity to examine my thoughts and emotions in a new way, to examine how I look at the world and the people around me, especially during a time when my spirit was put to the test. I was starting a business, launching a record and keeping a big secret inside of me, and it was a way to maintain my sanity, to keep my grip on the world.  I learned so much about myself in making this film, and that is what art is for me, an exploration of self.

HBO: How did you begin or approach the process? Did you have an idea in advance of what you wanted the story to be? Or did you discover themes and storylines along the way? 

BEYONCÉ: I don't think you'll find one documentary director who'll say that he or she knew right from the start what the film is going to be like in the end. Unlike fiction films, documentaries are really created in the edit process. All I knew going into this was that I wanted to share my point of view on life... I wouldn't have released a film just for the sake of self-documentation,  I wanted it to express what I believe to be true about life - that it's not random, that everything has a reason and that we need to be conscious of life's little clues and how the dots all connect or we miss out.  Read more...
Last summer it took six weeks for Beyoncé’s management team to convince skeptical HBO officials to sit down and watch the pop star’s new self-made documentary “Life Is but a Dream.”

But once they did, the film, airing Feb. 16, topped the network’s “must have” list.

“I have no clue why this works,” HBO’s President of Programming Michael Lombardo told the Daily News. “If someone said to me, ‘Why is this on HBO?’ I can’t say why — this isn’t a traditional documentary and this isn’t a traditional music special because there something undeniably moving and honest about it.”

Lombardo said that the film arrived at HBO nearly complete and needed only minor edits and titles added, all of which were handled by Beyoncé’s team.

Initially, he did not go out of his way to accommodate Beyoncé — after all, HBO has long been known for airing critically acclaimed documentaries and blockbuster music specials.

They receive and reject hundreds of pitches a year — many times from A-list stars.

“I knew who Beyoncé was, but I wasn’t really a fan. If you had asked me to name more than one of her songs at that point I couldn’t,” Lombardo admitted.

But as he does for most potential HBO programming candidates, he asked Beyoncé’s team to send over a copy of her film for him to preview.

They refused and instead insisted that they personally hand deliver a copy and watch it with him in HBO’s Los Angeles screening room. Read more...
