Lion King live-action movie to be directed by Jon Favreau

It’s no secret that The Lion King is one of Disney’s all-time greatest animated film ever to be released. So it’s not surprising that Disney has decided to recreate the movie into a live-action film adaptation. They already knocked it out of the park with the release of The Jungle Book earlier this year, so Disney choosing Jon Favreau to helm this masterpiece as well is an awesome decision. Favreau even confirmed the news in a tweet he sent earlier today:

In the past few years, Jon Favreau has been tied to other Disney hits, such as the Marvel franchise, and has also released the critically acclaimed film Chef. Favreau has got the acting chops, and the directing chops – he’s pure chicken-chopped salad. This means he’s got all the goodies in one bowl, and I have no doubt in my mind that he’s going to make this remake/reboot another hit for Disney as well. I can’t wait for it!
