    It's basically the equivalent of Disney's Dinosaur, which the company is considerers an animated movie. To me, it's just a CGI remake which I thought no fan would want.

    I've been wondering this myself. Photorealistic cgi isn't live action.

    I think it's being called a live action remake because it's a shot by shot, exact copy of the original movie just "live action". More CGI.

    Are they including the songs? I know The Jungle Book did so only minimally.

    Also, I believe, that like Jungle Book, which only one human character, a lot of the backgrounds have been filmed on location, so it's not 100% animated.

    Some people don’t know they are still drawings. The term animation is a bad word to them or triggers babyish.

    Apparently “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?,” “Hakuna Matata,” “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King,” and “Circle of Life” will be in the film but "Be Prepared" will not.
