The Lion King sequel is officially happening! A follow up has been given the green light, so it looks like we have a Lion King 2 headed our way!
Director Barry Jenkins has been assigned director of the film. We don't have too many details just yet and it is yet to be confirmed by Disney. If you are curious as to what the second film will be about, the events will take place after the live-action version of the film, not the cartoon one.
Jenkins stated "Helping my sister raise two young boys during the ’90s, I grew up with these characters, Having the opportunity to work with Disney on expanding this magnificent tale of friendship, love and legacy while furthering my work chronicling the lives and souls of folk within the African diaspora is a dream come true.”
Do you think there should be a sequel?
