In 2019, we got a remake of the original Disney animation The Lion King, which came out in 1994. It has just been announced that a prequel to the 2019 remake is in the works.


Director Barry Jenkins

Director Barry Jenkins is set to direct an upcoming prequel to the original story of The Lion King. Jenkins is known for directing the 2016 coming-of-age drama film Moonlight, which won a 2017 Oscar for Best Picture, and the 2018 film If Beale Street Could Talk which is a romantic drama set in Harlem in the 1970s. In a statement, Jenkins describes his attachment and love for The Lion King and says:

"Helping my sister raise two young boys during the '90s, I grew up with these characters. Having the opportunity to work with Disney on expanding this magnificent tale of friendship, love and legacy while furthering my work chronicling the lives and souls of folk within the African diaspora is a dream come true."

A Second Photorealistic Animated Movie

The 2019 remake of The Lion King was directed by Jon Favreau and written by Jeff Nathanson, who is set to write the upcoming prequel. The film kept the same plot as the original 1994 animated film, but used advanced animations and had different actors voicing the characters, such as Donald Glover as Simba and Beyoncé as Nala. The cast for the prequel is still unknown. The remake brought in $1.65 billion to Disney, so we can hope that its prequel is just as much of a hit!

Little People, Big World

Youtube

Kicking off this week's Reality Reel, TLC's Little People, Big World is preparing to say goodbye to its latest season and part of the family's past. The show, which follows the Roloffs as they upkeep their family farm while navigating life at four feet tall, has been airing since 2006.

Over fourteen years later, the family is wrapping up on season 21.

This ending of a season is especially bittersweet as the Roloffs are packing up to move and saying goodbye to the farm and family home.

Amy Rollof told us how hard it has been to make the adjustment.

"You sometimes don't think that you can get through it. And moving...I was like "where am I gonna go?" Like, my life is forever changing."

She went on to reveal the hardest part of it all...

"It's always been hard for me to watch my own show. To tell you the truth that is the hardest thing about doing this show for so many years."

Counting down to the season finale, Amy has been doing Instagram live sessions where she answers fans questions while sharing some favorite recipes. She currently runs her own shop called "Amy Roloff's Little Kitchen" where she sells home goods, kitchen supplies, apparel and more.

Check out this new series: I Love a Mama's Boy

The trailer is as awkward as it sounds. On this new show, viewers follow a few couples across the country who bud heads over who the most important woman is in a relationship. While the girlfriends are certain their priorities should come first, their boyfriends are convinced that mother knows best.

We talked to just one of the couples, Emily and Shekeb, ahead of the season premiere.

Explaining the situation, Emily said:

"I'm never, you know, prioritized in his life. You know...in my eyes, I wanna be number one."

Shekeb gave his response:

"It's not so bad though. I'm trying to keep the balance."

We hope to see the two find some middle ground on the show!

I Love a Mama's Boy premiers October 35th on TLC.
