The movie is being directed by Jon Favreau, who just directed the massively successful The Jungle Book. The Lion King is on another level all together. The most successful animated movie of the modern era. It is engrained in the mind of several generations. It's Broadway adaptation is the highest grossing musical ever. Disney is on a roll right now. The opening of Beauty and the Beast shows just how much demand there is for these types of movies.
If Disney was to get this movie ready in time for Christmas 2019, and assuming there is no Avatar or Star Wars movie coming on that date, do you think this movie can become the Highest Grossing film of all time? I think it can. At least in North America it would be a damn near guarantee. What are your views?
