‘The Lion King’ Sequel Is Happening
A follow-up film to the Disney classic The Lion King has been given the green light.
Moonlight director Barry Jenkins has been assigned the duty of directing the film.
For the sequel, it will follow events that take place after the live-action film, not the cartoon version of the film.
Disney hasn’t put out a release date for the project.
