Stop What You're Doing! 'The Lion King' Is Getting A RemakeBy Danielle Dieterich | September 28, 2016
Jon Favreau, who directed the recent reimagined "Jungle Book" movie, just announced he'll be giving a similar treatment to "The Lion King."
Excited for my next project 🦁👑— Jon Favreau (@Jon_Favreau) September 28, 2016
Although most people are calling it a "live action" remake, it'll largely be CGI.
The ironic thing about making a "live action" Lion King is that it will all likely be CG anyways. So... it's still animated.— Rebecca Parham (@Nacie) September 28, 2016

Some people have mixed feelings about the announcement.
The Lion King is as close as it gets to a perfect movie. Trying to be positive about news of a live-action remake... pic.twitter.com/TklruJRRI0— Mike T (@majtague) September 28, 2016
But others are having fun with it.
It's too soon to say much about the project, but one piece of advice, Disney: Don't change it too much. Remember who you are.
