Jon Favreau broke down serious walls when he created “The Jungle Book” earlier this year (a movie which soared past over $1 billion dollars at the box office), and it’s only getting better according to Disney. It’s been confirmed that Favreau is now helming” The Lion King” for live-action status. It’s hard to imagine that anyone reading this isn’t familiar with “The Lion King”, which was released in 1994. The Lion King, which won Oscars for its music, and itself has a lifetime box office gross of nearly a billion dollars. The film also spawned an incredibly successful Broadway show, which has now been running for almost two decades. Lovers of the classic Elton John-created songs can rest easy, as Disney and Favreau plan to include them in this new live-action take on the material.

James Earl Jones return as the voice of Mufasa?

What is looming as interest is whether or not James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Mufasa, the father of Simba the lion cub. As almost all of the original cast is still pretty active in the craft, so it would be pretty far-fetched to imagine that quite a few familiar faces wouldn’t return to the set–seeing as how Disney still has close ties with more than a few of them. What’s even more interesting, is that because we are set to receive a sequel to The Jungle Book, we can certainly expect a fast-tracked sequel to “The Lion King”. It would be unclear. However, what the story would be, as Disney made both of its sequels straight to home-video releases in the 90’s-00’s.

“The Lion King” has no current production date, and is in development.
