'Lion King' Easter Egg Revealed By Director Jon Favreau

There’s one major easter egg in The Lion King that fans should look out for going into the movie!

Director Jon Favreau sat down for an interview with ABC and revealed that every shot in movie is created by pixels…except for one.

“We knew we had to make it feel like a live action film as much as possible, but there’s nothing real in the movie. There’s no real sets, there’s no real animals, there’s no motion capture…there’s nothing but pixels,” Jon said. “Actually there’s one real shot. That I snuck in at one point in the movie.”

Out of the 1400 shots in the movie, Jon put in one real image from Africa, to see if fans could figure it out.

And before you see the movie this weekend, you may want to get familiar with this!
