Disney is enlisting a superstar cast for the launch of The Lion King remake, which will be hitting theaters during the summer of 2019. Beyoncé and Donald Glover are on board after accepting roles as Nala and Simba, respectively. Quavo is now campaigning for the Migos to become a late addition to the original 1994 animated film.

Nevertheless, considering the trio’s close ties to Donald Glover (and current popularity), there may be a glimmer of hope for Quavo’s dreams yet.
Quavo is an avid film fan. During an interview with Beats 1 last month, the ATL feature-machine revealed he is currently writing a script for an upcoming Migos film.
“I always been watching movies and watching my favorite musician do movies,” Quavo said. “They used to really do that a lot in the ’90s. I’m a ’90s baby and all my favorite movies got all my dope artists in them … Juice, Menace II Society. All the Snoop Dogg movies. Master P movies – I Got the Hook-Up. Baller Blockin, the Big Tymers movie. Even Ice Cube; Cube killed it! That’s what we’re trying to do right now and we’re looking into the script.”
