Yesterday, Disney announced a live-action remake of the children’s classic animated film The Lion King. Not everyone is feeling the love though.

Jon Favreau announced that he’ll be helming the project on Twitter:

Favreau of course recently had success with another Disney classic, as his live-action re-imagining of The Jungle Book performed extremely well at the box office.

Although The Jungle Book generally received a positive response from fans of the original, Lion King lovers are not happy to hear the latest remake in the works:

Up until Frozen, The Lion King was Disney’s highest-grossing animated feature ever so a reboot is no huge surprise. And The Lion King is just one of many live-action remakes Disney has lined up with Beauty and the Beast set to come out next year.
