US singer Beyoncé is to take a lead role in the remake of Disney's The Lion King.
She will voice the role of lioness Nala, next to lead character Simba, played by Donald Glover.
Beyoncé used Facebook to confirm her long-rumoured involvement in the project.
Her other co-stars include Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar and Seth Rogan as Pumba the warthog.
James Earl Jones will play Mufasa, as he did in the 1994 original.
It is scheduled for release in July 2019.
