Lion King is such a big part of our childhood. So many of us have seen it more times than we can count and probably know the whole movie by heart. I certainly know a couple of people who can retell you the entire movie scene by scene and can quote it whenever prompted. Taking that into consideration it’s both an exciting and scary time for every Lion King fan. On one hand we’re all excited about a remake with this new glorious cast, on the other hand we can’t help but compare with the original and nitpick the hell out of it. Ultimately we’re all hoping for something awesome though. So what should we actually expect?
With Donald Glover playing Simba we can be sure that the Hakuna Matata song will sound freaking phenomenal. I wonder if he’ll add a bit of that Childish Gambino vibe to it. But hey, it’s the super talented Donald Glover playing our favorite character, we’ve got nothing to worry about.
Honestly the whole cast looks incredible. Beyonce is playing Nala – how perfect is that? With Donald Glover and Beyonce in the lead we’re pretty sure the soundtrack will be impeccable. We can only hope and pray that it’ll prompt them to collaborate on a song or an album outside of Lion King.
Comedian Eric Andre is gonna play Ed the Hyena which is such a good choice and we’re pretty sure that will be the funniest thing ever. Chiwetel Ejiofor is playing Scar, which will be interesting, we’re not used to him playing a bad guy but we have no doubt he’ll do an amazing job.
