Disney’s The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book, 2016), journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Staying true to the classic story, director Jon Favreau utilizes pioneering filmmaking
techniques to bring the iconic characters to the big screen in a whole new way.

Long ago, Disney turned anthropomorphism into an art form. The Lion King future proofs the studio’s crown.
