Most have heard the legendary voice of James Earl Jones at some time or another.

He was the voice of Mufasa in “The Lion King.”

He voiced Darth Vader in the “Star Wars” films and numerous projects.

Disney D23 gave him a spotlight during their Black History Month feature.

However, fans thought the tweet sounded more like a condolence message!

“I almost had a d--- heart attack,” one fan wrote.

“I thought you were announcing his death,” another added.

“Don’t ever do that again,” another fan wrote. “Scared the s--- out of me.”

“Nearly dropped my f---ing phone,” another added.
