"I grew up with these characters by helping my sister raise two little ones during the '90s," Barry Jenkins announced through a statement. "Having the opportunity to work with Disney on expanding this magnificent story of friends, love, and legacy as I expand my work of recounting the lives and souls of people within the African diaspora is a dream come true."

If you remember, you'll remember that Jon Favreau's Lion King ended Simba As King so it remains to be seen when Jenkins' feature film will be set and whether it will include the same characters. Deadline suggests that he will continue to explore their mythology, including the history of the origins of Mufasa, the young monarch's father. Will you have any prequel then? Jeff Nathanson (Get Me If You Can), who has already written the libretto for the first remake, will re-sign the script.

The first part, among others, featured the voices of Donald Glover (Simba), Beyoncé Knowles-Carter (Nala), Seth Rogen (Pumba), Billy Eichner (Timon), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar), John Oliver (Zazu), James Earl Jones (Mufasa), John Kani (Rafiki), Alfre Woodard (Sarabi) and Florence Kasumba (Shenzi).
