    Who writes these interview questions? Donald was bored asf by what was asked, and so was I about 4 min in... Sean from Hot Ones has ruined me... I can no longer watch borning celeb interviews where the interviewer doesn't care about the guest haha.

    All the Beyoncé questions struck me as extremely disrespectful. Nauseatingly so. I don’t know squat about Beyoncé. I mean, perhaps I could pick her out of a small lineup, but Glover is wickedly talented, like on the order of creative genius, judging by some of his work. Awful interview 🙄

    Part of the reason I like Glover so much is because of how down to earth he is.

    He was way too upset about the interview. The part of ''this is a script for Atlanta'' reveals it

    This guy absolutely sucked as Simba, completely forgettable performance. And you can barely even hear him in the 'Can you feel the love tonight'. Overrated.

    Am I the only one who is not fascinated by or even interested in Beyonce? I don’t dislike her but she feels so overhyped that it takes away her charm

    I just watched the Lion King remake and I was pretty sad about how poorly Donald Performed. His characterization of Simba was very emotionless. All of his lines felt rushed and empty.

    Its crazy. He was doing the voice of Simba back when Solo was still new. It's crazy how long these things take and how they keep it all a secret until the trailer is released.

    I have to say Beyonce and Gambino sung beautifully. Loved their melodies together. But as far as voice acting went they were definitely not the best actors for the job. Disney should have casted actual voice actors or better actors who can voice better. These two were just lucky they were black.
