    Was not needed. CGI was off the hook but lacked any originality.

      Hi Chris, I thought it was apparent that James Earl Jones has aged 25 years. It wasn’t quite shot for shot and some of what was left out really felt disappointing. Completely agree that it is soulless. Thanks Chris.

          Why is there any debate? What's LIFE action about it? It's all 3D animation, therefore an animated film.

            Problem was people were going into this film straight away comparing it to the animated film, which is wrong. This movie I agree felt abit too much “ctrl c and ctrl v” but overall was a stunning masterpiece. The music was great and gave the nostalgia feel. At the end of the day you can’t please everybody, but as far as I know most people are complaining due to the fact the characters have no soul and come across dull. Well that Is what you will get with photorealistic cgi on animals. It’s very hard to get emotion to come out.
            The whole point of this movie was to give a more realistic feel of the lion king rather than an animated feature, and imo they succeeded. Unfortunately people like to slam the people who worked on trying to recreate a masterpiece.

              Rafiki was always my favourite too. My biggest disappointments were his character, and that iconic scene at the end (in the original) when Scar jumps through the fire before Simba sends him tumbling. That would have looked amazing in this film.

                  What is the reason for Disney's remakes?.... $$$$$$

                    Entertaining but inconsequential.
                    Huge on the technical part, but without the magic that has the original.

                        Too bad you're the 'expert' but don't use this review to promote the archetypes and do some explaining to your fans. Unless you don't know what I'm talking about...

                                This movie really should have been a D. It has zero creativity, originality, and removed all the personality of the origin.

                                  It's difficult to capture facial expressions with the more realistic animations in this movie
                                  The original was able to do this very well which allowed for much more emotion
                                  But the graphics were so life-like it was stunning

                                      People complaining that photo-realistic renders of Lions aren't showing human emotions on their faces. So stupid.

                                      Movie was amazing.

                                        This wanted to go so much for realism, that they sacrificed on all the characters facial expressions. They all seemed dead inside. Update: I didn't watch the whole video and you said what i said lol

                                            So many great lines either cut or said with no emotion.

                                              I think the biggest issue with this movie is the difference in expression due to the animation. With two dimensional animation you can get whacky and humorous. This animation, you can't do that because realism they can't imitate those same reactions and emotions. And it would have been in the acting but the voice actors didn't record together which really would have made it sell

                                                This is proof that Hollywood fucking sucks. All they care about these days is "being woke." Every movie is a goddamn rip-off or some comic book movie.

                                                Look at the new Child's Play. Why on earth was that movie made? What the fuck was even the point? Was there a gigantic clamoring for Child's Play? No.

                                                        I like how this guy tells the movie isn't that great, but he tells it with respect. All the negative reviews are so respectless like 'I laughed so hard when mufasa died' or 'this movie needs to be leave our planet now, such a boomer'. I don't think it is the best movie ever but i have a lot of respect how they created such a realistic looking movie

I've enjoyed remakes in the past but this one was clearly a straight up money grab. It was a waste of time and I kept sitting there in the theater the entire time waiting for the movie to be over. Sure its visually impressive but that gets old really quick when you realize the characters you know and love are soulless shells of what they use to be. Overall it was alright. A good movie for kids I guess. But I don't ever see myself watching this movie again. I'd rather watch the original Lion King which does a much better job at telling the story.

Different experience is a good enough reason in my opinion to release a new movie, I don’t think that remakes need all the time to have new scenes or different takes on a character, or whatever, I mean, the broadway show is fantasyic and is also the exact same, no one complains about it. I think this particular approach is justified.

The director is screwed either way.

Namely that I also didn’t care much for Aladdin and that they messed up Rafiki in this remake. I had some more thoughts in my review. Would be honored if you found the time to check it out.
