The Lion King movie has been a long time coming, with many people expecting the Disney-Pixar production to hit theaters sometime in 2020.
But that date has slipped through the cracks, with the studio telling The Associated Press in late March that it was still working on the film.
Disney’s plan to release the movie as part of the Disney Parks and Resorts summer film series next year has not been finalized, the AP reported.
But a Disney spokesperson told The Associated Journal that the company would like to see it released by 2020.
The release would be one of the last for the original 1984 movie, which has been available on video and DVD for almost 30 years.
But the company told the AP in late May that it would be “premiering in theaters later this year.”
The movie was created by Pixar, which was acquired by Disney in 2012.
Disney has yet to say when it plans to premiere the film, though the company has said it is committed to the release.
The Disney-owned studio also announced in April that it is bringing back the classic classic tale “Toy Story” to the big screen, with Mattel releasing the film as a new toy line.
The toy line includes the Disney characters “Aladdin,” “Aloha,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Mickey Mouse” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
Disney also announced on May 12 that it will open a new theme park in the Bahamas and open another one in Mexico.
The company is also bringing back its beloved film “Beauty and the Beast,” and a new live-action version of the story will open in 2019.
