The 2019 remake of the Disney classic, ‘The Lion King’ has been named the highest grossing animated movie ever, but Disney claims that the film is actually a live-action movie.
The film has scored $1.34 billion in the worldwide box office, more than Disney’s Frozen, which was released in 2013, which earned $1.27 billion, and was previously the highest grossing animated film ever.
The movie is dominated by CGI produced scenes, but Disney do not consider it an animated film.
Box office analysts, Exhibitor Relations tweeted about Disney claiming ‘The Lion King’ is a live-action movie.
Director, Jon Favreau, tweeted last month that there was only one real shot in the entire movie.
The Lion King is the second highest grossing movie of all time, behind Avengers: Endgame, which was recently named the highest grossing movie ever.
