Why, yes, there is a new Lion King movie on the way. This is an entertaining story with timeless characters and good life lessons. It can feel fresh as it’s retold many times and in many ways.
Jon Favreau is working on a live action version of the original 1994 Disney movie. He aims to make good use of new technologies to enhance the original with this new version.
Synopsis: “THE LION KING is one of the biggest animated films of all time with a lifetime global box office gross of $968.8 million. It won Academy Awards® for the original song “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” (Elton John, Tim Rice) and original score (Hans Zimmer). In 1997, the stage production inspired by the film made its Broadway debut, subsequently winning six Tony® Awards; 19 years later, it remains one of Broadway’s biggest hits.”
