I've seen it once but you and I are kind of in the same boat in the sense that it's not a remnant of my childhood that I have this huge nostalgia for. I only really know the most widely celebrated parts that everybody knows.

I have no problem with a Jungle Book style re-make of this. In fact I was kinda guessing that it would happen. It was only a matter of time after The Jungle Book did so well that they started giving Favreau other Disney properties to do CGI remakes. Say what you will, but you can't fault them, because this movie's gonna make a billion dollars without even trying. Jungle Book almost made a billion and it's not even close to as popular as The Lion King.

I don't think fans have anything to worry about with Favreau, he'll do it right. It may not be shot for shot but it will be similar and have the same tone, much like Jungle Book. A potential advantage The Lion King has over The Jungle Book is that the original cast is still alive. I don't know if they're gonna cast the originals but they could, in theory.

And by the way, if you hate it, just ignore it. I wouldn't care if they rebooted Back To The Future and it sucks, I still have the originals, it doesn't matter. If anything, remakes just increase peoples interest in the original. I guarantee you that when this announcement broke, it got tons of people around the world to watch or re-watch The Lion King.

Re: The Lion King to be remade into a live action movie

So, a live action movie in a story where there are no humans and all the animals talk? This just sounds like a CGI disaster waiting to happen.

I honestly have no clue how I managed to miss seeing it all these years, I've seen everything else but The Lion King for some reason But the movie is so ingrained in pop culture that I am fully aware of some of the pivotal scenes and the delightful Hans Zimmer score.

I am just waiting for the inevitable Aladdin announcement though, you just know it's coming. How on earth are they going to replace Robin Williams as the genie?

Am I the only one stunned that the most overexposed man in entertainment, the Rock, isn't attached to this project?

Re: The Lion King to be remade into a live action movie

The Lion King is the best film Disney have ever done, and is in my all-time top 5 (possibly top 3). They better not fuck this up...

Re: The Lion King to be remade into a live action movie

Meh, they're adamant to do every Disney classic. Let them, I still have my memories. Jungle Book was good, but nothing beats the animated ones.

Wouldn't be surprised if Little Mermaid, Dumbo and Bambi got confirmed by decades end.
