Disney Is Using VR To Help Film The Lion King Remake

Though Disney also screened previews of upcoming releases like The Nutcracker and the Four Realms and the live-action adaptation of Dumbo, it's obvious that the Lion King stole the show. Then as famously portrayed in the movie and on posters worldwide, Rafiki takes to the tip of the rock and holds Simba up high for the Pride Lands to see. Favreau was also the genius behind the majorly successful The Jungle Book remake past year. Scar was originally voiced by Jeremy Irons back in the classic 1994 animated film.

It's plausible that Jackman could really be the voice of Scar, and his team is trying to keep it under wraps until there is an official announcement. The Lion King, which was an animated feature, is now being made as live-action film. James Earl Jones voices the father of Simba, Mufasa. Jackman has just recently retired his Adamantium Wolverine claws for good, after his swan song Logan hit theaters earlier this year. Alas with what Jackman's representatives have said, it seems there's zero room for Jackman being involved. If Jackman and Beyonce both end up in the film, it would be one of the best ensemble casts Disney has ever compiled. Newcomer Mena Massoud will play Aladdin, and Power Rangers Naomi Scott will round out the cast as Princess Jasmine. Note: Disney has not stated when and if it will release this first look at the film.

All of this is necessary set up when describing what we saw from The Lion King, because - even with the not fully polished footage we saw at D23 Expo - this new project absolutely follows in the footsteps of The Jungle Book's incredible recreation of these animal characters.
