The Thought of Migos Being Cast as the Hyenas in 'The Lion King' Remake Is Hilarious
The trio say they're ready for the task, even though the "The Lion King" cast has been locked in. We're here for it anyway.
We're still excited about the news of Beyoncé's confirmation to play Nala in The Lion King 2019 remake.
But yesterday, Quavo of Migos let Disney know that the trio wants to voice the hysterical hyenas and they're ready to go.

This would be beyond lit, right? The internet seems to agree.

@QuavoStuntin @Disney If @Disney pick y’all up and gives you a line that says “wrap it up then” I will lose it— Hoodie Melo (@Hoodie Melo) 1509909002.0
Laughs aside, this is indeed wishful thinking, as Eric André, Keegan-Michael Key and Florence Kasumba have already been locked in to voice Shenzi, Azizi, and Kamari. Maybe Disney can collaborate with Migos and feature them on the soundtrack—a "Bad and Boujee" rendition of "Mufasa Mufasa Mufasa" sounds very promising.
But for now, enjoy the fun.
