Jon Favreau directing new LION KING for Disney

After directing the hugely successful Jungle Book adaptation, Jon Favreau will now remake the Disney animated classic The Lion King for a new generation of moviegoers.

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.

Disney and Favreau are also in development on a sequel to The Jungle Book. No release date has been announced for either film.
