As the director of the 2016 live-action Jungle Book, Favreau aimed to amalgamate the spirit of Disney's The Jungle Book with the faithfulness and storytelling of Rudyard Kipling's original tale. He used Kipling's rendition of The Jungle Book as an opportunity to kick-start Neel Sethi's career into stardom. He is currently directing the upcoming live-action 2019 film The Lion King, a remake of the 1994 film.
