Disney Star Zendaya To Play Aaliyah In Television Movie

To many parents Zendaya may be known for Disney roles and some may know her better from season 16 of  Dancing With The Stars but if casting directors are correct she will be known soon for her role as the late great Aaliyah Haughton.

Lifetime has green lit the made for television movie Aaliyah: Princess of R&B and the casting of the role of Aaliyah's has kicked off the media buzz.

What do you think about Zendaya portraying Aaliyah? Reportedly she will sing Aaliyah's music as well.

Zendaya dressed as Aaliyah for Dream Halloween last year.

Here's the thing, I can see her as Aaliyah but even if I couldn't the way she sings or mimics Aaliyah's personality will tell all. I just like the fact that I am not too familiar with her to judge her outright beforehand.

We shall see come this fall or maybe not...Aaliyah's family is reportedly not too happy about the Lifetime biopic film. According to family they were never contacted by Lifetime and the movie will never see the day of light. They have no issue with a film being done just not a made for TV film which I totally understand.
