Justin Timberlake, one of the most famous pop musicians of the last thirty years has supposedly joined on to be a part of a Disney musical. This has come as a shock to many as for more than a decade this artist has done whatever he can to differ himself from the Disney channel. It seems that as Disney continues to grow as the main publishing house of the cinema, even Justin Timberlake can’t get away from their grasps.
This marks the first time since Justin Timberlake has been a part of the Mickey Mouse Club that he will have worked alongside Disney. These as of right now are simply speculations with no real proof pointing towards the actor/musician being a part of a Disney Musical. It would make sense for him to take on this role though as for years his acting career has been put on hold, this mainly being due to a lack of good roles being offered to the star.
Justin isn’t the first from the Mickey Mouse Club to return back to Disney. Both Brittney Spears and Christina Aguilera have returned to the network to do songs in movies. Disney is the company behind dozens of beloved stars; they continue to make new stars with the likes of Demi Lovato or Nick Jonas.
Even though in all definition every single one of the films directly released by Disney is a musical. The difference between this film and others is the fact that this will be a live-action musical. There have been rumors that Disney could be making a live-action edition of Frozen due to its immense global success, this would make perfect sense as it’s already almost been two years since the film was released. If this is the case, then it’s more then likely that we will see Justin in the role of the brunette prince.
Unfortunately, this film is shrouded in mystery, and if rumors are correct, it will continue to be shrouded in mystery. This new musical is slated to be one of the largest to be released in Disney’s history. There is also a chance that Justin Timberlake could be joining on for Mary Poppins 2. That casting announcement, if correct will be made soon.
The likely-hood of Justin Timberlake returning to Disney is high. His career has been slightly put on hold for a number of years, with only one album in between that brought him back into the spotlight. Mr. Timberlake is looking for a new start, a new method to which his career could rise to the popularity it once was. Hopefully, fans of this star will be lucky enough to see what this lovely & kind hearted man can do on-screen once again.
