Let’s Welcome the King of the Pride, Simba !!
The Lion king is one of the finest creation of Walt Disney that’s why it grossed more than $968 million and become the second highest grossing movie of all time. I love this franchise very much and very close to my heart like the jungle Book.
When I saw the live action of Jungle Book, I rememorized my childhood while watching live action Mowgli and I also wanted to see live action of The Lion King.
Now my dream is going to come true as we all know that Disney is preparing to update live action of The Lion King and some of the classical animated movies into live action.
Few days ago, Disney announced a list of some cult classic animated movie which they are going to convert into live action like Snow White, Rose Red, Mulan, Dumbo, Aladdin, Mary Poppins and The Lion King.
So, friends if you are searching for the latest updates about The Lion King then my friend you are at correct platform, here you will find each and every latest update about the upcoming live action movie, The Lion King.
The Lion King is a live-action, adventure and drama movie, which is a reboot of 1994 animated movie, The Lion King, which was released on June 15, 1994 and won many awards for its music and comedy.
The Lion King Live Action Crew Members
Disney is again pairing up with Jon Favreau for another live action transformation. Disney and Jon Favreau were previously worked together in fourth highest grossing movie of 2016, The Jungle Book, which was great adaptation of Walt Disney animated movie with the same name, The Jungle Book (1964).
Walt Disney Studios said that “We can officially confirm that The Walt Disney Studios and director Jon Favreau are putting a new reimagining of The Lion King on the fast-track to production”
Right Now, Jon Favreau has two Disney movies in his pipeline, The Lion King Live Action and The Jungle Book 2. He will start shooting with same crew members in both the movies as both the movie has same kind genre and story of both the movie.
It is a musical animated movie and the musical tracks of original movie are so effective that makers try to reinclude them in this movie also. Elton John and Tim Rice written the music track for the movie.
Voice actor of The Lion King Live Action
As this movie is in pre-production work and Disney did not announced the voice cast of the movie yet. That’s why we can’t conclude anything right now but we are pretty sure that some of the stars of previous movie to show their characters more authentic.
Which are as follows:
- Matthew Broderick (Simba)
- Neve Campbell (Kiara)
- Jason Marsden (Kovu)
- Suzanne Pleshette (Zira)
- Moira Kelly (Nala)
- Nathan Lane (Timon)
- (Ernie Sabella (Pumbaa)
- Robert Guillaume (Rafiki) and many more.
Now it is interesting to see, what are the new elements, makers will include to twist the story of the movie and it is quite difficult for them to show all the live action animal characters in the movie. As there is no human character in the movie and we also don’t want any live action lead cast in the movie, we want an original and authentic story in this live action movie.
