Meet the Kid Playing Young Simba in 'Lion King' Remake!

We already were so excited for the live-action remake of The Lion King and now this video of the film’s Young Simba actor JD McCrary singing is getting us even more excited.

The talented singer appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and said that he has been singing since he was in diapers, plus that he idolizes Michael Jackson.

When asked about playing Simba, JD said, “I feel like me and Simba have a lot of similarities. We can both sing, we both love and look up to our dads, and we both have really scary uncles.”

JD sang the Jackson 5 song “Who’s Loving You” for the audience and you can watch below!
