By the sounds of it, Blue Ivy Carter is a Lion King fan and at a recent premiere for the films newest version she couldnt help narrating the storyline to Donald Glovers son.

The Childish Gambino star took two-year-old Legend – who he has with partner Michelle White – to the premiere of his latest film, in which he voices Simba, and the youngster was very interested in what Beyonce and Jay-Zs seven-year-old daughter had to say about the film.

Donald – who stars opposite Beyonce as Nala in the movie – said of Legend: He was so done, but he met [Blue Ivy], she was behind us. So, [Blue Ivy] was narrating the movie.

[Blue Ivy] was like, “Scar, hes lying,” the This Is America star continues. And my son was like, “What? Who is that?”
