Disney’s new take on The Lion King will not be a shot-for-shot remake, but will “revere and love those parts that the audience wants.”
Speaking to THR, Sean Bailey, the chief architect of Disney’s live-action film studio, discussed whether the remake of the beloved 1994 film will stay true to the original or if it will be bringing something new to the table.
“The Lion King is a revered and beloved movie,” Bailey said. “So you’d better revere and love those parts that the audience wants. But there are things in the movie that are going to be new.”
