WAIT, wait wait, hold the breaks!!! The voice acting is good?? I thought that was one of the worst aspects of the entire movie and especially Donald Glover is terrible as Simba, making him out to a complete whimp with a much less powerful singing voice than the young Simba.

I think it's more about out growing disney movies or any movie you've seen In your childhood. You won't get that same childhood feeling as you once did. And for that every remake of these will suck In comparison.

Terrible voice acting everything was flat. I didn't even see who was in the movie so the only thing that was a nice touch was a nostalgic chill once I heard Mufasa speak for the first time, after that it was down hill from there. Especially with it being a clone and the actor being 25 years older even HIS lines felt underwhelming. Knowing what was about to be said word for word it felt completely lifeless. Giving Timon a camp voice actor was horrendous, nothing against people's sexuality but I do have a problem with how they speak insinuating that is a feminine voice is an insult to women. Pumba showing that Seth Rogan might be a great guy to smoke with and he might be good in cheap comedies however he is too one dimensional. All I could do was compare what I remember from the original to this remake and other performances from Zazu (Mr Bean) to the other half of Fry (I think that was him, I don't care tbh) every performance from each counterpart in the remake was nauseating and irritating to listen to. This is not even subjective just simple hard facts. I wish it was some sort of bias feeling but other than a one time "oh shit, that's the original mufasa!" I couldn't give a monkeys uncle about defending the original.


Now there is no doubt in my mind that Simba from the original was clearly one of the weakest links compared to the other "iconic" characters. So that could only mean that this one would have much better actors for this role. WRONG. the kid sounded like some snot nosed runt that I only ever used to hear in Call of duty games I honestly was glad to see Mufasa pass knowing that his performance was done (Simba's). The older one (Simba) was less annoying but will be even more forgettable than the original which I didn't think was possible.


Don't get me started on the pop singer and the hyenas.


Ugh what a mess.

I really, honestly don't understand why the fuck they are remaking the good original films!!!! WHY????? JUST WHY????? What's the point? Especially if they are just gonna make it exactly the same? I get it if they are remaking some original films to improve them and fix some problematic scenes for the new generation children, so I actually liked Aladin for that. But remake of Lion King was so pointless. If I have to show Lion King to my children in the future, I'd definitely show them the animated original version, not this new live action version.

The movie moved a bit too fast pace in the beginning & feels like they were trying to force a lot of moments. Some parts did feel emotionless, Be Prepared was very underwhelming. The best song of the lion king underwhelming. Rafegee was underwhelming.

To me the fight scene was at was good & epic. The movie overall was ok

You were upset the movie didn’t have anything new, I’m upset it didn’t stick completely to the original movie.

They should have just used the exact audio of the original movie and updated the animation in a stylistic way, like Moana.

This movie lacked all the heart from the original. And that shitty "spirit" song from beyonce fucked up an emotional scene, that bitch pluged that trash song as a requirement to do the voice for Nala and still managed to butcher the character. Simba's voice by that other retard Glover sucked ass, it was like he had a carrot in his ass during his performance. Scar voice was terrible. In general all the voice acting was bad, Erl Jones sounds like he doesn't want to be there. Movie starts frame by frame and then near the end starts doing it's own thing with that, yet again, shitty song from beyonce. If you are going to do a movie frame by frame, then do it frame by frame.

The Jungle Book-You can do a remake of that cuz there have already been many Jungle Book movies.
Cinderella-Yeah there have been many Cinderella films, you can go ahead and do that.
Maleficient-Yeah sure, twist it up, have the villain be the protagonist, there's many things you can do with that.
Aladdin-Okay sure, there are things you can do to twist it up to make it feel fresh and somewhat original.
The Little Mermaid-Hasn't happened yet but it could be a good thing.


The Lion King????? Really?????? A masterpiece that is already so PERFECT???!!! NOOO!!!!! Like Stuckmann said it should never have been done. It's unnecessary. If I were CEO of Disney, I'd put an end to the whole live-action remakes idea.
