Disney Is Remaking The Lion King! See The LONG List Of Cartoon Classics Lined Up For Live Action Reboots HERE!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyElton John

Disney is diving back into its vault for yet ANOTHER live action reboot!

Though this time it'll only kinda be live action — as it's being helmed by director Jon Favreau, who already killed it with believable CG animals in 2015's The Jungle Book.

According to the announcement, the Lion King remake "will include songs from the animated film." Not surprising at all, given the Elton John and Tim Rice-penned songs won Oscars and Grammys and even Tony Awards!

No release date has been set, but word is the film has been fast-tracked, so if you've ever wondered what a REAL lion would look like singing I Just Can't Wait To Be King, you won't have to wait TOO long.

And of course, you'll have plenty of other classic reboots to tide you over…

An Avengers Reunion! Look What Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo & Scarlett Johansson Are Cooking Up In Their New Movie, Chef!

Whoa, did we just enter the Age of Ultron, because we are loving seeing these Avengers back in action…in a completely different movie not related to S.H.I.E.L.D.!

Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, and Scarlett Johansson are all sans their superhero alter egos in the new trailer for the HIGHlarious film, Chef!

Yes, chef! Sorry, just Gordon Ramsay reflexes there.

The film stars Jon Favreau (he also directed and wrote it) as a chef who wants to march to the beat of his own whisk, and who ends up transforming from a frustrated chef into an independent owner of food truck!

Ch-ch-check out the trailer and get a little taste of this comedy (above)!!!

Scarlett Johansson Hugs It Out Onscreen With Jon Favreau In Chef!

scarlett johansson gv ramey 1

Yeeeesss, Chef!

Scarlett Johansson always looks delectable, even from as far away as she is in these new photos from the set of the movie Chef.

ScarJo was seen sharing an acting moment with director and co-star Jon Favreau, mugging hugging for the camera on the hood of a car.

Uh, jealous much, Captain America??

Chef centers around Jon's character, an LA chef who loses his job and has to start up his own food truck, while SJ plays his restaurant manager and potential love interest. Ooh la la!

Knowing that, makes the hood of that car look even hotter! Well, they're shooting in LA so it's probably already preheating at 112 degrees. That's in Celsius, too!
