The Lion King has Arrived!

So we have Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book movies which have all been revamped and the stories have been modified. In my opinion, 2 out of 3 were hits! Maleficent took me a few tries to appreciate (I really hated the fairies!), but it was visually stunning as all the new movies have been.

Yesterday, however, the Director of The Jungle Book (2016), John Favreau announced that he would be directing a new version of…. drum roll please……..

The Lion King!

The movie is set to be released in 2019. It has also been confirmed that the new film will have some of the original songs in it.

The Lion King is one of my all-time favorite movies, for sure. I’ve literally memorized more than half that movie word -for-word. To be honest, I’m not sure how this movie will be. It’s such a super classic and favorite that part of me is thinking, “Leave it alone!”. But another part of me is trying to imagine how freaking adorable baby Simba is going to be!

What are your thoughts?
