Live Action ‘Lion King’ in the Works

It’s the Circle of Life… again- that’s right The Lion King is the latest story to get a reboot. And this time, its going to be live action, well sort of.

It will mimic the style of The Jungle Book reboot so it will look live action but will actually be the magic of cutting-edge technology and a greenscreen set.

Jon Favreau, who will be directing the reboot, posted this gem on his instagram.

Excited for my next project
