    Figured I'd get a thread going for this since it's building and should be out in just about 2 years.

    We're looking at yet another live-action, reimagining of a Disney animation classic. Directed by Jon Favreau, who brought us the same deal with The Jungle Book in 2016. To all of our joy, this will remain a musical.



    *Edited for full cast release on 11/1.

    Anyways, list off your current judgment, further potential casting or just your excitement for it!

    Oliver is annoying so him playing Zazu makes sense.

    I don't understand why this is being labeled "live-action". Remember the Disney movie "Dinosaur" where they shot in real locations and then CG'd the dinosaurs? That wasn't considered live action right?

    Same. Especially since there won't be any humans in this film. It will be 100% CGI characters.

    Great, another thing that will stop Donald Glover from making more Atlanta.

    Yep, no idea how this is live action when it doesn't have any humans in. Do they motion capture the faces of the voice actors as they speak or something like that? No idea.

    I'm very cautious about this remake. It's one of my favourite Disney films. Thankfully Favreau did a brilliant job with Jungle Book so at least it has that going for it.

    the lion king is one of my favorite disney movies, and I'm a huge disney nerd so to say I'm excited is an understatement.

    I get more excited each time they announce a new cast member!

    I will be most excited when they quit messing around and announce Jeremy Irons as Scar.

    Didn't even consider Jackman, but that's great casting!

  19. Damn! I wanna see that footage
  20. Davjs


    Dang, Jackman is a good pick but I still can't believe they didn't get Irons back. Having all that new casting with OG Mufasa and Scar would have been perfect.

    dang, she was pretty perfect. Have they not announced the hyenas yet? If not, get a trio like the Sunny guys or Workaholic guys.

    I could easily see Charlie Day as a hyena
