“It’s a beautiful, gorgeous movie.
I mean, this is the Oscars, not this is some sort of film festival or something.”
– Michael Moore in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, which is published Wednesday.
The film’s title, “Lion King,” was released in March, and is about a man who discovers that he is the king of the lions.
Moore, who is also a producer on the film, told the publication he was approached by the producers of the film to play a king in the movie.
“And then I started to think, Oh, this sounds like the sort of thing I could do,” he said.
Moore’s performance of the song “I’ll Take You Home” is featured in the film.
The song was written and performed by singer-songwriter Josh Groban.
Moore is an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and his administration, calling it “a dangerous presidency.”
The Oscars have been historically one of the most watched events in Hollywood.
The 2016 ceremony featured the return of the Oscars for the first time in nearly 50 years.
“We want to thank the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for its extraordinary and unrivaled commitment to diversity and inclusion and for supporting the Academy’s mission to provide a platform for the arts and sciences to flourish and advance in the United States of America,” the Academy said in a statement.
“The Academy is proud to be the home to the Oscars and the Academy is excited to have a new home at the Dolby Theatre.”
Moore said he is currently in the middle of writing the song for the film but could not say anything about when it will be finished.
