Idris Elba is in negotiations to do the voice of Shere Khan the villainous tiger in The Jungle Book. The movie will be directed by John Favreau of the Iron Man franchise. The movie is said to be a combination of live action and VFX, which make sense because I can’t see any other way of doing the movie. If they want to keep it true to the story then this would be the only way to do it.
This is one of many live action movies/tv shows that Disney is working on. Disney has Maleficent coming out this year, they are working on a Cruella, Peter Pan, and Beauty and the Beast movies. They are also in working on an Esmerelda tv show that might tie in with the Once Upon a Time series.
Are you excited for live action Disney movies or do you think they should stay animated?
