Disney has announced that it is going to remake The Lion King in live action, but how is this possible? Previous Disney remakes such as Malificent, Cinderella, Pete's Dragon, and even The Jungle Book all had human characters, but The Lion Ling is a cast of entirely wild animals, which will be created in CGI. CGI is just another form of animation, so how can they call the film live action?

You raise a good point, technically it won't be 'live action' since all the characters will be cgi, but it will look a lot more real than the original. In my opinion, this is no different than any other reboot.
The only thing I can think could be real are the landscapes, but even that I would actually have thought to be CGI because it is unlikely they are going to travel to Africa to film footage of the Savannah only to then superimpose CGI characters on top of it.
I would still watch it. I believe it will deliver magic :)
Another one I have not seen and have no interest in seeing either at the movies, theatre, or on TV!

You've never seen The Lion King?!
No need to shout.
Yeah, I don't think that's technically live action. I also don't really see the point of it. From the trailer I saw it looks like the animals will be harder to empathise with than their more stylised cartoon versions.
I agree with you on that. I think it will be harder than with films like Narnia as well.
They already did live action Narnia movies though. I liked them.
