After the massive success of the live-action remake of The Jungle Book, Disney has commissioned director Jon Favreau to re-create that same magic with another beloved movie: The Lion King.

That's right, The Lion King, arguably every '90s kid's favorite animated movie, will be getting the "live-action" treatment. The news was confirmed by Disney in a press release.


With that said, there is at least one good reason to be optimistic about the forthcoming film. According to Disney, there will be original songs from the animated film in the remake.

This is not unlike what Disney is doing with other remakes, such as Beauty and the Beast, which debuts next year.

No official release date has been set for the film.
