When I was kid I watched The Lion King more times than I could count. My sister and I would literally watch it every damn day. To this day, she still has this speech memorized (1:40 mark):
I also cried during the Broadway Musical version of “Circle of Life” when my dad took us to Toronto.
Anyways – imagine my delight at the news that Disney is now going to give the “Live Action” treatment it’s given to Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, to THE LION KING!
Now – this one is interesting because “Live Action” really will just mean some serious CGI since it’s a film with absolutely zero humans in it… but whatever. I’m excited.
BONUS: They’ll be including original songs too!
