The film is now in production in the United Kingdom, and "cInematic ringmaster", director Tim Burton sent a video greeting, saying the 1941 animated classic is "one of my favorite of the Disney movies, and we are working to give this all the heart and emotion [of the original]".

Disney teased a minute or so of its live-action treatment of The Lion King on Saturday at its D23 Expo, and though the film isn't due until 2019, it certainly looks on track.

Apparently, Jon Favreau showed off the opening scene from the original - but recreated with the style and visual effects he's planning to put to use in his version. The Lion King, which was an animated feature, is now being made as live-action film. This looks like another Disney blockbuster after huge successes of Jungle Book and The Beauty and the Beast. He joins Donald Glover as Simba, Billy Eichner as Timon, Seth Rogan as Pumba and John Oliver as Zazu. James Earl Jones is set to return as Mufasa. Jackman definitely has the angry pipes to play the villain, as fans have been used to his haggard voice as Wolverine for years. Alas with what Jackman's representatives have said, it seems there's zero room for Jackman being involved. This new report hasn't been confirmed by Disney or acknowledged during today's announcements, so feel free to read into this picture the Logan star recently shared however you like. The Lion King is set to hit theaters on July 19th, 2019.
