We were already so hyped when the talented, star-studded cast was announced for director Jon Favreau’s upcoming retelling of The Lion King, but our excitement just reached a whole new level.
Last night, Donald Glover and JD McCrary—voices of adult Simba and young Simba, respectively, in Favreau’s upcoming The Lion King—gave a soulful performance of Glover’s song “Terrified” at the Grammys. We have one word: wow. Favreau posted a picture on his Instagram showing off their moment onstage:
Name a more iconic duo, we’ll wait. Those are some big shoes to fill as adult and young Simba, but we have so much faith in these two and their breathtaking vocals!
Seeing how much Glover and McCrary poured their hearts into this performance, we have no doubt that they’re going to make us feel all the emotions when The Lion King hits theaters in the summer of 2019!
