It looks like Iron Man director and actor Jon Favreau has no plans to let go off the jungle anytime soon. Last year he gave us the live action adventure The Jungle Book, which turned out to be the biggest hit of the year, as well one of the greatest hits of all time. In India itself, it was one of the top grossers of 2016, overshadowed only by Sultan and Dangal. Starring Neel Sethi, The Jungle book was an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's famous children's book by the same name. It featured the voice talents of Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba and Christopher Walken.
Now Jon Favreau is all set to remake the very popular 1994 animated classic The Lion King in the same format as The Jungle Book, though there won't be any real humans this time. Produced by Disney, the remake will cast Donald Glover as Simba while James Earl Jones will lend his voice again as Mufasa. Jeff Nathanson, is writing the take on the animated classic, which is considered one of the pinnacles of Disney’s animated movies. BTW there is also the sequel to The Jungle Book in the pipeline.
Atlanta star Donald Glover will also be seen as the younger Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Star Wars spinoff based on Han Solo.
