After Disney officially announced the cast of their upcoming remake of The Lion King, which had Twitter going insane, rap trio Migos shared that they want to voice the film’s infamous hyenas. Quavo, 1/3 of the group, tweeted at Disney this weekend, asking them to call up Migos about starring in the remake.
If Disney were to cast Migos as the hyenas (which they absolutely should), the Atlanta rappers would join a star-studded cast including Beyoncé as Nala, Donald Glover as Simba, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Eric André, John Oliver, Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen and many more.
Clearly, other fans are in agreement that Migos should voice the hyenas, with Twitter account Our Generation Music superimposing Quavo, Offset and Takeoff’s faces onto the hyenas from the original movie with their new song “Motor Sport” playing in the background, as you can see below.
Migos’s first single off their upcoming Culture II, the Nicki Minaj and Cardi B-featuring “Motor Sport,” arrived at the end of October. Culture II will be the followup to Migos’s smash-hit album Culture, which debuted at number 1 in February of this year.
