‘Lion King’ and Beyond: 7 Classic Films Reimagined… With Migos
Need a call casting!
Disney revealed the cast of The Lion King‘s live-action reboot last week, and despite its star-studded lineup, Migos frontman Quavo took issue with the picks to play the hyenas. No disrespect to Eric Andre or Florence Kasumba, but Quavo feels that he, Takeoff and Offset could do a stellar job. And considering the nature of the hyenas—a close-knit band of friends that through thick and thin would do whatever it takes to get ahead—it’s tough to not imagine the Migos taking a crack at it, their locks hanging over slivered eyes as they peer across the safari at Pride Rock, plotting.
The Lion King visions are too good to be relegated to The Circle of Life, though. So MASS APPEAL flipped a mini script on that Disney gem, along with six other classic films, all reimagined with the Migos playing prominent roles.
