The debate over whether The Lion King is live-action or animated has been going on for months, and it seems Disney is still refusing to say it's an animated movie.

This could make things interesting when it comes time for awards season, to see if Disney will continue insisting it's not an animated film, and not put it in contention for animated film awards.

An argument can be made for calling The Lion King an animated film, since every single frame of the film is comprised of computer generated footage (except for one shot, according to director Jon Favreau).

But then again, it uses photo-realistic techniques that are far more advanced than traditional animation.

He also said that calling The Lion King an animated movie is 'misleading as far as what the expectations might be.'

Animated or not, The Lion King is currently the second highest grossing film of 2019 at both the domestic ($473.3 million) and global ($1.337 billion) box office.

The Lion King comes in a distant second behind Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Endgame ($857.9 million domestic, $2.795 billion worldwide), which recently surpassed Avatar ($2.789 billion) as the highest grossing film of all time worldwide.
