The upcoming "Us," Jordan Peele's follow-up to hit horror flick "Get Out," is shoring up its cast, adding several young stars to the ensemble.

The most high-profile of the bunch is actress Shahadi Wright Joseph, who will be providing the voice of Young Nala in Disney's upcoming live-action remake of animated classic "The Lion King." Scoring a leading role in a huge Disney flick and a part in the hotly-anticipated follow-up to an Oscar-winning film back-to-back suggests that this young star seems poised to break big.

Also joining "Us" is a pair of twin sisters, Cali Sheldon and Noelle Sheldon. Eagle-eyed TV viewers (or anyone with access to Google and IMDb) may remember the baby Sheldons sharing the role of Emma Geller, the daughter of Ross and Rachel on "Friends," during the hit NBC sitcom's final season. This time, they appear to be playing two different people (though we assume, still twin sisters).

Rounding out the new cast members are actors Evan Alex and Madison Curry. As has been routine with news concerning "Us," nothing has been revealed about any of these characters just yet.

What little we do know about the flick, though, suggests that film fans are in for another huge treat from Peele (and the need for a hug afterward). The film, described as a "nightmare," reportedly follows two couples, one black and one white.

The previously-announced cast -- which is seriously stacked -- includes Lupita Nyong'o, and Winston Duke (playing one of the couples); Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker (playing the other couple); Yahya Abdul-Mateen II ("Aquaman"); and Anna Diop ("24: Legacy").

"Us" is set to scare the pants off of you starting on March 15, 2019.
