It's official, there's gonna be a tlk remake.

The tlk remake has a male cub in the end of the movie according to the official novel. And it never mentioned any Scar followers either. So it's unlikely they will remake Simba's Pride. Maybe they will use some elements like a new rival pride for a threat.

Will Aladdin remake follow the plot of the animated sequel?

I believe they already mentioned Aladdin 2 will not be a remake of Return of Jafar.

Yes, most of the newest articles on the "Aladdin 2" live action point to a different take than "The Return of Jafar" like the one below.

We'll see if TLK2 and other movies will go this route or if they will follow in "Aladdin"'s footsteps.

If that's the case then the animation and live action will be like two completely different universes. It'd be funny if they turn "Frozen" into a live action movie and "Frozen 2" will have a completely different plot - no Into the Unknown song, etc.

Oh geez. The producer of Frozen already shut down the idea of a live action Frozen, and Frozen III (for now).

Not sure how many people have heard, but according to many sources the studio that worked on visuals for The Lion King remake shutdown earlier this week. These were the same people who worked on the Sonic movie and who were going to work on Jurassic World 3. Not sure how this would affect any potential sequel to TLK.

Though I’d assume they’d just get another part of the studios to do it, these were many super talented people with lots of successful movies behind them.

The studio was just a part of one company iirc. A company that had many other vfx studios.

Shouldnt affect a sequel that much tho I do feel terrible for those losing their jobs right before Christmas, esp after all the crunch time they did...

Frozen II has finally entered the top 50 grossing films of all time and upon seeing this I couldn’t help but notice The Lion King ‘94 is only 3 movies now from being knocked off that list. Which will likely all come in 2020. Something about that makes me feel sad, especially seeing how it was once the 2nd highest grossing film in the world. I know inflation has a giant part in it but still. Somewhere I read that TLK 2019 made the same amount ‘94 made just in today’s money. I guess it’s just the unfortunate fate of older movies that will just be destroyed on top list because of the costs nowadays.

I noticed that about "Frozen II". Had "Simba's Pride" gotten a cinematic release imagine how well it would do, knowing the direct-to-video sales were the highest for any Disney sequel back then.

Yes TLK '94 was once the 2nd highest grossing film. So crazy that as technology continues to advance, movies that make use of it tend to gross higher.

TLK 2019 made more revenue but less profits.

TLK 1994 made close to 800 million (original release not counting rereleases) on a much smaller budget. You need to remember that theaters take a big cut of that revenue too.

Still, not to downplay tlk 2019’s success... biggest disney remake, biggest musical, biggest disney movie that isnt marvel or star wars..,
