What better way for The Lion King to enter the next phase of the Circle of Life than to get a live action adaptation.
Recently, Disney has been reimagining its animated classics like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty to cater to more contemporary audiences. A live action remake of Beauty And The Beast starring Emma Watson will premiere in 2017!
Following the success of Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book which earned nearly a billion dollars in the worldwide box office, a sequel is currently in the works. He's also set to direct the live action remake of the 1994 classic we grew up watching.
Although its release date has yet to be announced, the live action adaptation of The Lion King is surely going to be a hit.
