Disney are so pleased with Jon Favreau’s live action version of The Jungle Book, they’ve asked him to do the same with The Lion King.
That’s about all we know so far, although Disney has said it’s on the fast-track to production. It is expected to include songs from the original.
It’s the latest of Disney’s animated films to be remade as a live-action.
What do you think? Are Disney doing the right thing in remaking one of their most-beloved animated classics?
