HOLLYWOOD, CA—Netflix and Disney have come together to produce one of the greatest crossover events of the century. The Liger King will take the hero of the Netflix documentary Tiger King, Joe Exotic, and place him at the center of the world of Disney's The Lion King. In the film, Exotic will present a baby Liger as the new king of all the animals, but he will also run for governor and then president of the Animal Kingdom.
The entertainment giants have kept most of the details of the project under wraps, but leaked footage revealed that the story will continue Joe's ongoing war with Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue. The film will be a musical featuring Doc Antle singing "A Circle Of Wives," and former drug kingpin Mario Tabraue singing "Hakuna Matata" after escaping a life sentence for chopping a man into pieces on his own property.
Actors who have already signed on for roles in the film include Rowan Atkinson as Joe Exotic and Jim Gaffigan as Doc Antle.
