THE LION KING

While the film certainly seems poised to offer a few surprises, Disney President Sean Bailey recently confirmed in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter that the film is a hybrid, calling it a “a new form of filmmaking” that utilizes both live-action and animated elements.

“The Lion King is a revered and beloved movie, 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. [And] it is a new form of filmmaking,” he explained. “Historical definitions don’t work. It uses some techniques that would traditionally be called animation, and other techniques that would traditionally be called live action. It is an evolution of the technology Jon used in Jungle Book.”

“The Lion King” hits theaters July 19.
