The Academy and Grammy Award-winner voices a cocky croc, who has his own plan for surviving dry season.
Common fans might want to tune in with their kids for the latest episode of Disney Junior’s The Lion Guard.
The rapper, producer and actor will guest star on an upcoming episode, “Let Sleeping Crocs Lie,” as an overconfident crocodile named Kiburi, who thinks he knows what’s best after the crocs are stirred from their slumber during dry season. Kiburi will battle Makuu, voiced by Blair Underwood, for leadership and we’re not quite sure how well things will go.
The episode will also feature Common’s Selma co-star David Oyelowo as villainous Scar.
The Lion Guard is Disney Junior’s continuation of The Lion King, which focuses on Simba’s son Kion and his friends who act as the Lion Guard, protecting the Pride Lands.
The Academy Award-winner will appear in six upcoming projects, including Best Day of My Life alongside Sarah Jessica Parker. He’s also preparing for his Imagine Justice charity concert at the Capitol Mall in Sacramento on Aug 21.
“Let Sleep Crocs Lie” airs Friday, August 11 at 8a.m. ET on Disney Channel.
