    I love Donald Glover in anything but I miss the energy he had from community days. He seems a little burnt out more than chilled and I hope he's okay.

    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 <3

    And my honest opinion: Having grown up with the original as a perennial classic, this obvious economic exploit actually did justice to both the source material and the contemporary capabilities of animation, to create a thoroughly enjoyable nostalgic reimagining that feels authentic to our world now. ! I feel blessed that I've experienced the zeitgeist of both versions and appreciate both for what they are and how they are individually iconic cinematic masterpieces =)

    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
