Will Beyonce Star in Disney's "Aida"?

Here’s some good news if you love Elton John‘s "Aida" musical — as well as Beyonce Knowles

According to Jim Hill Media, Disney seems to be wooing Ms. Knowles back to the musical pool. They’d like the "Dreamgirls" star to anchor their big-budget movie version of Elton John’s "Aida," which is based on the opera of the same name by Verdi. (Got all that?)

The project might not be getting underway immediately, but it does look like it’s going to happen. Disney actually optioned an old "Aida" storybook (once upon a time) because they were hoping to make an animated movie out of it. (JHM even has the unused character pics to prove it!)

I’ve never seen the show, but I’d happily sit down to see "Aida." And if you have to ask why, I recommend you go check out some pics of Beyonce Knowles. Like this one…
