The remake of the 1994 animated musical film The Lion King will be helmed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Elf, and The Jungle Book) and will tell the story of Simba, a lion destined to be king, and how he claims back the throne that was taken from him by his uncle Scar. 

The original film won numerous awards in the year it was released, including an Academy Award for Best Song for Elton John's "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" and Best Music for Hans Zimmer, as well as Golden Globes Award for Best Original Score, Original Song, and Motion Picture. 


The Lion King is slated for release in July 2019. Can 2019 come any sooner please?
