Disney Just Announced a Live-Action Remake of 'The Lion King'

A live-action remake of the classic animated film The Lion King is in the works, according to Disney!

The upcoming movie will follow the story line of the original flick and feature songs from the production!

The Lion King will be directed by Jon Favreau, who helped bring The Jungle Book‘s recent reimagination to life and will feature a real child actor while bringing the jungle to life through cutting edge CG technology.

The Lion King builds on Disney’s success of reimagining its classics for a contemporary audience with films like Maleficent, Cinderella and The Jungle Book. The upcoming Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson as Belle, is already one of the most anticipated movies of 2017. Like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King will include songs from the animated film,” the company said on their website.
