'The Lion King' is risking some millenial nostalgia outrage with a live-action/CGI remake


"The Lion King" is getting a remake. Cue the outrage.

<b>Entertainment Weekly </b>reports Jon Favreau is on tap to direct the project, fresh off of making "The Jungle Book." That live-action remake of a beloved Disney animated feature was a huge hit, earning nearly $1 billion worldwide. 

Details are limited at this point, but Disney said in a statement that the movie would be similar to "Maleficent" and "Cinderella," which both featured a mix of live-action and computer-generated animation. 

Jon Favreau seemed pretty excited about the project. 

But a lot of people were... not. 

Some just weren't emotionally ready.

We legitimately can't tell if this is terror or excitement.

Wait. Who wants "Tron 3"?

How do you feel about a 'Lion King' remake?
