Jon Favreau Signs on for ‘The Lion King’ CG Musical, The ‘Jungle Book’ Sequel


Walt Disney Studios today officially confirmed that director Jon Favreau is putting a new reimagining of The Lion King on the fast track to production. The project follows the technologically groundbreaking smash hit The Jungle Book, directed by Favreau, which debuted in April and has earned $965.8 million worldwide.

The Lion King builds on Disney’s success of reimagining its classics for a contemporary audience with films like Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book. The upcoming Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson as Belle, is already one of the most anticipated movies of 2017. Like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King will include songs from the animated film. Disney and Favreau are also in development on a sequel to The Jungle Book. No release date has been announced for either film.

‘The Jungle Book’ Concept Art in High Resolution, Bonus Features Sneak Peek

no images were found

In honor of next week’s release of The Jungle Book Diamond Edition, which marks the first time the immortal Disney classic will be available on Blu-ray, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has provided us with sketches and concept art created for the film. Admittedly much of these has been previously released before, but rarely at such a high resolution. So high in fact, that we had to shrink down several of the images in size just to make them fit. In addition to the concept art, they have also provided us with sneak peeks from the all new bonus feature, ‘Music, Memories & Mowgli: A Conversation with Richard M. Sherman, Diane Disney Miller and Floyd Norman.’

‘Jungle Book’ Merchandise Now Available from JC Penney

'The Jungle Book' PlushIn anticipation of The Jungle Book Diamond Edition Blu-ray, available February 11, 2014, JC Penney has now added several items to its new Disney boutique. The bulk of the current collection consists of plush, not unlike those previously released in Europe by Disney Store and those expected to be available at Disney Store at the beginning of the new year. However, while Disney Store UK also lists a Junior and Shere Khan plush (these are likely to be available domestically as well), it does not list a Mowgli plush which JC Penney currently offers. Also available at launch are a Bagheera plush, a Baloo plus and a King Louie plush as well as a boys’ Jungle Book t-shirt.
