Migos are throwing in their names to be part of Disney’s live-action remake of The Lion King.
On Sunday, member Quavo Scorsese said that he wanted the group to get the parts of the three hyenas in the movie: Shenzi, Banzai and Ed.
The rapper tweeted out an image of the cast list that has been making the rounds of the internet before tweeting at Disney to “call us.”

However, one of the hyenas has already been cast, with Florence Kasumba set to play Shenzi, a role that originally went to Whoopi Goldberg.
In the meantime, Migos is working on a different movie, one that Quavo is writing the script for.
“I’m a ’90s baby and all my favorite movies got all my dope artists in ’em,” Quavo explained during a recent interview before going on to list the different movies that he was drawing on for inspiration. “Juice, Menace II Society, all the Snoop Dogg movies, Master P movies, I Got the Hook-Up, Baller Blockin,’ the Big Tymers movie. That’s what we’re doing right now. We’re looking into the script.”
While that project doesn’t sound at all like Disney’s Lion King, it could be absolutely amazing to have Migos as part of the cast. We’ll just have to wait and see what the final cast looks like.
