Disney's putting a "reimagining" of The Lion King in the hands of Jon Favreau, following his version of The Jungle Book raking in piles and piles of money.
Favreau's "The Jungle Book" has earned $968.5 million at the worldwide box office since its release in April, according to Disney.
The project joins Disney's other recent reimaginings of its classic animated films, including Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book.
The Lion King - which has also been reimagined as a six-time Tony award-winning Broadway show, which opened in 1997 - is the top grossing animated movie of all time.
Disney is expanding its ever-growing repertoire of live-action reboots with one of its most beloved movies.
They have also tapped Favreau for Jungle Book 2. With their live-action Beauty and the Beast set for release next year, Disney has already announced their next adaptation of one of their pre-existing films.

The Lion King debuted on the big screen as part of Disney's animation Renaissance in 1994. It won Academy Awards for the original song Can You Feel the Love Tonight and original score. Still not down for a new take on Lion King?
No release date for the new film has been announced.
