Nala – Lupita Nyong’o
I’ll keep this one short, as the entire world seems to be in agreement on this one. Nyong’o not only sounds a great deal like Moira Kelly but is practically born for the role. Her calming demeanor that can shift into intensity when needed is exactly what Nala needs. In her key scene, we need Simba and the audience to not only fall in love with her, but listen to her. Nyong’o would command the speech Nala gives Simba about going back to the Pride Lands. Out of all of my suggestions, this is the one that I’m most confident will actually happen.
