The Lion King is getting a live action remake! There’s not a not known yet, except that Jon Favreau is to direct the movie, as he has directed the live action remake of The Jungle Book. The reimagination of The Lion King follows the example of Cinderella, Maleficent, said The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, which will be released next year.
So, is this a good idea or will our childhood memories be ruined? Can you transfer the emotionality of the animated movie to cgi animals? Or will the movie flop horribly?
