Chance The Rapper Plays A Bush Baby In "The Lion King"
Keep your eyes out for Chance's Disney debut!
By now, you already know Disney's remake of The Lion King is filled with stars.
Donald Glover plays Simba, Beyoncé plays Nala, Seth Rogen plays Pumbaa, Billy Eichner plays Timon, and the iconic James Earl Jones reprises his role as Mufasa.
Following the film's premiere earlier this week, Chance the Rapper also revealed he was secretly a part of the recording process, having signed on as a consultant per Jon Favreau's request.
Chance's addition to the film is even sweeter considering he's been a huge fan of the franchise his entire life.
"For about a year I would go to [The Lion King] studio and see early animations, scenes, music direction or assemblies and they’d always be out of this world amazing."
"One day I’m there Jon [Favreau] asked me to do some singing stuff, another day he asks me to do some lines. Its all a blur, but I’ll tell u its one of the best blurs of my whole life," he shared.
In case you were wondering what the hell a bush baby is...
As a huge Chance the Rapper fan, I now have yet another reason to go see The Lion King when it hits theaters on July 19.
