And a wider deal is reportedly being struck for the 38-year-old to feature on two other huge Disney productions.

A source told The Sun: "Beyoncé has become a major player for Disney and is the perfect fit for their brand. She’s worked on a number of projects for them, including voicing Nala in the reboot of The Lion King, and now they’re keen to secure her for more projects.

"Disney have put forward a deal worth around £80m, which will secure Beyoncé for three major projects, including the Black Panther sequel.

“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.”
