    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
