One of Disney's most loved movies 'The Lion King' is set to be re-imagined as a live-action/CG project.
Disney is working with Jon Favreau, the filmmaker who directed the 2016 version of 'The Jungle Book, for the new version of the film. He took to Twitter
to express his excitement.
Excited for my next project 🦁👑— Jon Favreau (@Jon_Favreau) September 28, 2016
Disney said on their website "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."
There will definitely be a lot of fans excited for this one!
