'Lion King' Live-Action Film's Opening Scene Shown at D23!

'Lion King' Live-Action Film's Opening Scene Shown at D23!

After the massive success of live-action remakes like The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, it was a no-brainer for Disney to next tackle one of their most beloved films to date - 1994 classic The Lion King.

Are you excited for The Lion King?

It remains to be seen whether the live action version of the original film will be able to repeat the enormous huge critical and commercial success The Lion King received. This casting also reveals why Jackman posted this cryptic tweet yesterday.

Tim Tebow hits his first walk-off home run since high school
In 14 games with his new team Tebow has 14 hits - two of which were doubles, two were home runs - and he has driven in nine runs. The Mets are seven games below.500 and sitting in fourth place (out of five) in the National League East standings.

The rumor was denied when TheWrap approached Jackman's representatives, who confirmed the falsified information. He joins Donald Glover as Simba, Billy Eichner as Timon, Seth Rogan as Pumba and John Oliver as Zazu. Jackman has just recently retired his Adamantium Wolverine claws for good, after his swan song Logan hit theaters earlier this year.

Interestingly, the legend James Earl Jones was the voice of Mufasa in the original animated feature also. Variety expressed the singer was Favreau's top choice for the character, but so far there have been no official announcements. Disney has yet to confirm this just yet, but with D23 now underway, we expect them to do so quite soon. He's making Lion King (scheduled for a July 19, 2019 release) in Los Angeles, again using virtual production techniques by reteaming with Jungle Book's Oscar winning VFX supervisor Rob Legato and lead VFX house MPC.
