Director Jon Favreau popped in to see Jimmy Kimmel last night. 

Fresh off the back of the D23 expo at the weekend, Jon has been spilling the beans about what went on. 

He chatted about the latest Spiderman movie starring Tom Holland. Jon also revealed a very special moment that happened at the expo. He said that he treated fans who attended to a two-minute teaser clip of the new CGI live-action remake of The Lion King that he's working on at the moment. He claimed there has never been a reaction like it. 

Jon also admitted his uncertainty surrounding the success of Iron Man. 

Work is coming together on the remake of The Lion King. Just last week it was confirmed that they finally had cast an actor to voice the character of Zazu. Read more on that below.
