Disney is on a rampage of “live action” remakes of their classic animated movies, and the latest film on the list is The Lion King.

What emotions are these lions even feeling?!
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the pitch meeting that led to Disney’s The Lion King… again! It’s super easy, barely an inconvenience!
