Donald Glover on Beyoncé, The Lion King & Childish Gambino



  • 6:41 I watched 2019 The Lion King in an arthouse cinema where you can drink alcohol in the theatre, and it was at this point in the film when I fiiinally heard Donald's voice that I actually squealed and exclaimed 'I LOVE DONALD GLOVER!!' - He was phenomenal and just a brilliant and inspired choice for this role

  • i feel like he has split personality. like donald glover and childish gambino are two different people. donald is funny, extroverted, animated. gambino is stone cold. emotionless. forces smiles. its hella crazy

  • This guy seems as energyless as the new movie is. I don’t know why anyone would cast him. He has no excitement. He seems jaded and full of resentment. He seems like he’s being “sweet” cuz he has to be, not because he wants to be or because he genuinely is. He gives me anxiety. It’s like he’s about to snap at any minute.

  • i along with everyone else were excited to hear beyonce as nala but i was even more excited with donald glover as simba

    • I just think that if the original Lion King was rehearsed today, people would complain. It's all about complaining and screaming against everything nowadays, just for the sake of it. Whether it's really good or really bad... Producers, actors, directors, fans shouldn't even bother. I loved it SO MUCH!! Laughed, cried, sang, it was beautiful just as much!!

  • This man, along with Beyonce, ruined the movie. We needed Donald Glover from him and he gave us Childish Gambino as Simba instead. Like he legit sleepwalked through his performance. Beyonce, I don't even want to get started on.

  • When it comes to this movie, I have no problem with the casting. Good singers, great voices. But the animation. I'll just be frank. It looks boring and lifeless. Hopefully mushu in the Mulan remake won't be this flat.
