Hakuna Matata! Disney Is Remaking "The Lion King"
On Wednesday, The Walt Disney Company officially announced that Jon Favreau will direct "a new reimagining of 'The Lion King,'" another Woolverton standout.
As one of the biggest animated films of all time, with a lifetime global box office gross of $968.8 million, "The Lion King" has won numerous Academy Awards, Grammys, and Tony Awards.
And based off of its continued success (and that of many Disney remakes), it seems guaranteed that it will win many more once the remake is released.
