Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover To Star in New ‘Lion King’ Movie As Simba

Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover is taking his game to the next level. With his own show ‘Atlanta’ on FX breaking records, and a second season on the way, the multi-talented Glover was just tapped for the big screen, live action revival of Lion King.

Writer/director/actor Jon Favreau took to Twitter Friday to reveal that Glover has been cast as Simba, and James Earl Jones would play Mufasa.

This will be epic.
