Beyoncé is “in talks” to sign a $100 million deal with Disney for three new major projects, including the upcoming sequel to “Black Panther.”
Beyoncé has officially become a vital part of the Disney family. It looks like the superstar’s stint as Nala in the 2019 live action remake of The Lion King, as well as helming the film’s official soundtrack, was not a one-time endeavour with the Mouse House. Although she has already been secured for the soundtrack of the upcoming sequel to 2018’s Black Panther, Beyoncé has become “a major player for Disney and is the perfect fit for their brand.” That’s why, according to The Sun’s sources, Disney has offered Bey a £80million deal—approximately $100 million USD—for two more projects along with Black Panther 2.
“As part of the deal,” the source revealed, “they are also trying to get her team to agree to have Beyoncé voicing some of the new documentaries coming to Disney Plus. After the success of having Meghan Markle voicing the film Elephant on the platform, they have projects coming up which align perfectly with Beyoncé’s brand.” While “negotiations are still ongoing,” the source confirms that “the final details that are being thrashed out now.”
Back in April, Bey participated in the ABC’s Disney Family Singalong where she sang “When You Wish Upon A Star” from the Disney film, Pinocchio. During her appearance, she noted that she is “very proud and honoured to be a part of the Disney family.”
