:lol: come out haters. Come out.

How is it a waste when the movie has not been made? Yes she is not a great actress, but the original Lion King was focused on Simba. Not Nala

I'm not a hater - I just don't want Beyoncé anywhere near this movie.

I know Wayne had no interest in the movie to begin with lol

Beyoncé is African-American excellence, the cream of the crop, it had her name all over it. 'The Princess and the Frog' should've been her all along, even if Anika did a good job, the movie deserved the attention and quality only a star like Beyoncé can deliver.

Right, why is Rolling so butthurt? They probably will introduce some large-sized mammals and they'll need an act to have that role, there's still hope for this project.

Yes, she's box-office gold. 'The Fighting Temptations' was Oscar worthy, while 'Epic' received worldwide attention.

Yes, the impact is undeniable, no wonder you remember them after so many years.

That's not how the film industry works, at all. You have to look at the money spent on the project and its revenue. There are films that rank in the top 100 of the highest grossing that made next to no money.

Yikes, it´s just a voice role :lol: .

I´d have preferred someone like Lupita because her speaking tone is softer and a little less huskier than Beyoncé´s but she´s still a pretty dope choice.

Dying for a Gambino+Beyoncé collabo in the film´s OST.

Gambino and Beyonce would kill me. Napa is not that big of a role, and it's not as important...

I hope Whoopi returns

Doesn't really matter. Point is, you're claiming Beyonce would've saved that film, despite her being a box-office nobody.

She should stick to singing! And just ba cause it's a voice role doesn't mean she should be cast, her speaking voice is boring as hell and shows next to no emotion. No thanks!

Speaking of Anika Noni Rose, she'd be well suited, she's a great actress!

The worst thing will be when the 'Hive' claim the inevitable success of this film will have all been down to Beyonce.

We have never claimed that with the successful films she has had. I thought you left. Btw, she has had more success at box office than flops. Unlike the woman in your avatar.

Storyteller,

I agree that Bey has not shown any emotion in her voice. If she is in the film, I hope she opens up a bit more. If not, I will read her from A to Z.

You need to grow up. You've brought Celena Dion and Janet Jackson into this because Wayne and I have said something you disagree with. Purposely trying to create stan wars because you cannot partake in a mature conversation.

Janet has had 3 #1 films in the US and another at #2, which is pretty decent considering all those films are horrible.

That's subjective. I'm guessing you didn't watch 'Lemonade', she recited poetry beautifully.

And she has some experience voicing characters beyond 'Epic'.

I will do what I want. I brought up Celine because Wayne has been throwing darts at us for a while, and no one says anything. So I did. I mentioned Janet to piss you off because I don't know why you are even talking to me. :D

I did not forget the stunt you pulled, and the "power" you tried to display. Btw, A #1 movie does not have to bring in $50 million.
