The rap trio Migos has already won over music critics and incited us all to replay their tracks on iTunes to catch their unique (and at times indiscernable) ad libs.

Now, the Atlanta hip-hop group wants to put its stamp on children’s movies, namely the highly-anticipated “Lion King” remake.

On Sunday, Migos member Quavo posted his plea for the trio to make their Hollywood debut in the upcoming live-action remake, which already has an all-star cast including Beyoncé, Donald Glover, Alfree Woodard and Keegan-Michael Key.

Quavo simply told Disney to “call us” about the group playing the three hyenas. Just minor details that Key, comedian Eric Andre and actress Florence Kasumba have already been cast as hyenas in the new film, slated to premiere July 19, 2019.

The group’s fans were on board for the possible last minute casting. 

Twitter users offered numerous examples of how the group’s signature phraseology would fit right into the “Lion King” script.

As with all social media campaigns, Migos didn’t quite have everyone on board for the possibility of the group members playing the original hyenas Bonzai, Shenzi and Ed.
