Recommended Posts

Link to our thread on The Lion King (1994).

Links to our Disney-live-action-films-based-on-animated-films threads on Enchanted (2007), Alice in Wonderland (2010), The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010), Maleficent (2014), Cinderella (2015), The Jungle Book (2016), Alice through the Looking Glass (2016), Pete's Dragon (2016), Beauty and the Beast (2017), The Chronicles of Prydain (in development), Cruella (in development), Dumbo (in development), Enchanted 2 (in development), The Jungle Book 2 (in development), Genies (in development), The Little Mermaid (in development), Maleficent 2 (in development), Mulan (in development), Night on Bald Mountain (in development), Peter Pan (in development), Pinocchio (in development), Prince Charming (in development), The Sword in the Stone (in development), Tink (in development) and Winnie the Pooh (in development). We don't seem to have any threads on 101 Dalmatians (1996) or 102 Dalmatians (2000). Has Disney made any *other* live-action films based on their cartoons?

Jon Favreau To Direct Reimagining Of ‘The Lion King’ For Disney
No release date yet, or screenwriter and cast details, but it’s safe to assume that will be along very soon. Read the full press release below.
We can officially confirm that The Walt Disney Studios and director Jon Favreau are putting a new reimagining of The Lion King on the fast track to production. The project follows the technologically groundbreaking smash hit The Jungle Book, directed by Favreau, which debuted in April and has earned $965.8 million worldwide.
The Lion King builds on Disney’s success of reimagining its classics for a contemporary audience with films like Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book. The upcoming Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson as Belle, is already one of the most anticipated movies of 2017. Like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King will include songs from the animated film. Disney and Favreau are also in development on a sequel to The Jungle Book. No release date has been announced for either film. . . .

Watching this was a listless, joyless, slog that reminded me, among other things, how much I didn't care for the underlying material in the first place.
