I am... Nala Fierce

Excitement for this week's Lion King release is at an all-time high. I'm not saying that Beyoncé's role as Nala is the only reason why, but it might be the most important.

Case in point, a Twitter user has renamed themselves "ariel & the beyoncé cinematic universe," nodding to Queen Bey's role as Queen of the Jungle and her protegé, Halle Bailey, recently being tapped to play Ariel in the live-action remake of the Little Mermaid. That same user posted a thread of tweets that Photoshopped Nala onto all six of Beyoncé's studio albums, and now I can't unsee it.

Dangerously in Love has been aptly renamed Dangerously in the Jungle, and Nala takes a subtler approach to diamonds with a simple headpiece. I personally think this one should have been Pridefully In Love. Get it? Like a lion pride?

Nala's sophomore album is Hunt Day, but I think "Kitty Kat" is still on the tracklist.

I Am… Nala Fierce. Period.

There are four letters in the name Nala, which is the number that reappears in Beyoncé's life all the time. Coincidence? I think not.

"I know when you were little cubs, you dreamt of being in my huuuuunnnt," or whatever Nala said on "***Flawless."

And last, but absolutely not least, is Nala's version of Lemonade, where she fearlessly tells Simba: "This is your final warning, you know I give you life. You try this shit again, you gon lose your lioness."

I need the SoundCloud links immediately.

It makes the whole uncanny valley thing even more uncanny

Early critiques of The Lion King have already noted the uncanny valley aspect of the computer-generated animals, and they are not wrong. It's hugely distracting—and the addition of an A-list cast voicing those animals makes it even worse.

We talk to the stars and creator about the show's iconic first season

Veronica Mars is a show that's had more than nine lives over the course of its 15-year run. What began as a teen drama about a young girl-turned-private investigator digging into the mystery of her best friend's murder, has evolved into a universe filled with complex characters, twisting story lines, and a cult following more than happy to go along for the extended ride.

Winchester's Black students got jokes

"If everyone stayed exactly the same, life would be tedious and predictable... like the third season of a Netflix show." That's just one of the not-at-all-subtle winks to its network in the Dear White People Season 3 trailer.
