Saturday Night Live has just imagined how the new upcoming live-action Lion King film would be if some of today’s hottest stars auditioned for a few of the roles in the movie. Of course, in real life, it’s already been confirmed that the likes of Donald Glover, Beyoncé, James Earl Jones, Eric Andre, and a slew of other big names have already landed to play pivotal characters.

In this make-believe situation, SNL has Cardi B, Offset, Kit Harrington, Oprah Winfrey, Eminem and more trying to earn their place in the film. They all showcase their skills but it all ends up in fun and games with a lot of disastrous and comical outcomes. Watch the video above and stay tuned with us when more real Lion King news arrives in the coming months.
