    Let me guess. They have that already.

    I'm boycotting mainstream Hollywood movies until they start coming up with some new ideas again. Enough with all of the sequels, remakes and reboots already.

    Considering "Lion King" and "Aladdin" exist as Broadway shows, this has really already been done...

    I know that, but what I really meant was movie remakes.

    What is a "live action" remake of The Lion King actually going to entail, since there's no human characters in the story? Won't it just be a hyper-realistic, but still animated film??

    It'll look like the Jungle Book but without any humans.

    That's what I figure, and is exactly what I described: hyper-realistic (CGI) animation.

    I understand, but it wouldn't take a whole lot to expand those properties to the movie screen. Just make a film of the stage versions and voila! Live-action remakes!

    As I noted in earlier posts, a "live-action" version of "Lion King" would emulate the stage production.

    Admit I doubt they'd do it, though. Audiences accept humans in animal costumes on stage but probably not in the same way in movies.

    Because "Lion King" includes no human characters, a version ala the 2016 "Jungle Book" would still be fully animated - there'd be nothing "live action" about it.

    "Hyper-realistic CG animation" is still animation! :)
