Moon Phase reports that an anime revival of Osamu Tezuka's Jungle Taitei (also known as Jungle Emperor Leo, Kimba the White Lion, and “That Manga Disney Ripped Off In Lion King”) is in the works. Fuji TV has announced that they will air the new TV special in the summer, in honor of Fuji's 50 anniversary and Tezuka's 80.

The series will apparently be written by Osamu Suzuki, who wrote the screenplay for Lovely Complex's live-action film-- and yes, they're playing up the "Osamu x Osamu" idea. I, for one, am pretty excited.
