After the massive success of the live-action remake of The Jungle Book, Disney has commissioned director Jon Favreau to re-create that same magic with another beloved movie: The Lion King.

That’s right, The Lion King, arguably every ’90s kid’s favorite animated movie, will be getting the “live-action” treatment. The news was confirmed by Disney in a press release.

Can a movie be live-action if it doesn’t feature people?

Favreau hinted at the remake earlier this morning via his Twitter account, and people have so many thoughts about what’s to come.
