Without naming any names, Lisa recalled one horrible experience:

"The worst behavior just off the top of my head? I rehearsed without makeup most of the week and then on show night I'm in hair and makeup and I was told, 'Oh wow, now you're' –can I say it? 'Now you're fuckable.' That's bad behavior, I say."

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…
