Jon Favreau and The Lion King

Disney and Jon Favreau to Reimagine The Lion King

By Nicole Nalty

It’s the Circle of Life! After bringing the technologically groundbreaking The Jungle Book to life earlier this year, Disney and Jon Favreau are teaming up again to reimagine another classic Disney animated adventure: The Lion King.

The Lion King is one of the biggest animated films of all time and is beloved around the world. From the soundtrack and the musical production to experiences in Disney parks, The Lion King has continued to be a global phenomenon since its release in 1994. While we don’t have a release date for this film just yet, here’s what we do know: The film will feature music from the 1994 animated movie, and with Jon Favreau at the helm, we’re sure our favorite characters will be brought to life just as beautifully as were the many animals of The Jungle Book.
