As soon as the full cast of the 2019 Lion King remake was release by Disney on Wednesday, everyone got that much more excited about returning to the Sahara. Donald Glover and Beyoncé alone are gracing us with their star-studded presence in everyone’s favorite childhood flick.
Besides those two household names joining the roster, the cast list has some pretty iconic talent showcased. Seth Rogen is playing Pumba, Billy Eichner will be the new Timon, John Oliver will certainly make a brilliant Zazu, and of course, the legendary James Earl Jones will return as Mufasa. However, even though the cast list has been confirmed, Quavo was feeling a bit of FOMO and decided to call out Disney on Twitter proposing that Migos fill the rolls of the Hyenas.
The three sidekicks to Scar’s malevolence (Shenzi, Azizi, and Kamari) spend the majority of the film howling anytime Scar decides to rustle some shit up. Unfortunately enough for Migos, the parts of the Hyenas have already gone to Florence Kasumba, Eric André, and Keegan-Michael Key. It wasn’t long however before Twitter started popping off demanding that the trio join the roster.
