CALLING DISNEY. THIS IS IMPORTANT.
With the cast of the upcoming Lion King remake getting better by the day -- Beyonce was announced to be voicing Nala last week -- it's hard to imagine how it could still be improved. Then on Sunday, Quavo perfected it with one tweet.
"3 Hyenas Lions King call us @Disney," the Migos rapper tweeted.
OK, look, powers that be. We don't ask for much, but if we could have Quavo, Offset and Takeoff join this already star-studded franchise, well, not to be dramatic but our lives would be complete.
They wouldn't be the only musicians on the bill either. In addition to Beyonce, Donald Glover is set to voice Simba. Other cast members include James Earl Jones as Mufasa and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar.
Additionally, Alfre Woodard (Sarabi), John Oliver (Zazu), John Kani (Rafiki), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa), Billy Eichner (Timon), Eric Andre (Azizi), Florence Kasumba (Shenzi) and Keegan-Michael Key (Kamari) also star. JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph will play young Simba and Young Nala, respectively.
