        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 think people expect to much. I didn't watched it as critical as people probably did. I loved to see my favorite childhood movie in another skin

            Cutting Rafiki's and Simba's scene about forgetting the past was criminal!! WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!

                  I personally loved the film because I basically wanted to see the lion king in cgi and that’s what they gave us.

                        If anything this movie makes me hesitant to see future remakes. 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.

                            The fact that its a shot for shot remake said as a negative point... I have to respectfully disagree. 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.

                              What they should’ve done was make it like an actual nature documentary, but without a narrator. no dialouge, just the atmosphere of the wildlife. Would’ve been far greater than trying to do both

                                  It's a double edged sword because if they create the exact same shot for shot film then it's somewhat boring and predictable, but if they try and change things about it and be creative, people will get pissed that it's not the same movie they grew up with. The director is screwed either way.

                                    I agree with you on a few things. 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.

                                    Your review was great! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

                                        You should really watch the Korean movie "Parasite " Best movie of the year so far.

                                              It’s not a shot for shot remake. There are a few shots that are new. However, it’s 90% shot for shot remake.

                                                They rape the be prepared song it was cringy to hear and no nazis too just because some snow flake will feel ofended, its just sad people aren't mature anymore to know a joke when they see one.

                                                  The nazi thing works as a cartoon but not with this ultra-realistic style they're going to with.

                                                Great review I echo your thoughts exactly! The seen with Mufasa in the clouds was not good, the animated film actually showed his image giving it greater impact!

                                                  I agree 100%! Took my nephew to see it Friday. I didn’t hate it, but it was basically a shot for shot duplication with no personality. I stand by my original thought from when they announced it was coming, what’s the point?

                                                    Ugh, I wanted the movie to be an exact remake of 94’ but I’m not happy either.

                                                        ^ that is why I think they made the movie so soulless and took away so much from the characters. *Realism*

                                                          2D animation works because the animals are really just humans in animal form. In the case of this movie, they're actually animals doing human things and it comes off as hilariously weird.

                                                            With all do respect I think the reason they didn't make any changes to the movie is because they wanted to respect the original and they had fear of backlash for making changes to the story and doing anything major to the movie.

                                                              100% agree. I'm not going to see this live action because it is a copy and paste of the original. I love the cast though. And the visuals are stunning. But it's the same movie. I would've seen it only if it was the original animated film with this movie's cast as the voice actors. That's why the only remakes I'm going to see are The Little Mermaid, Mulan, (because I KNOW they're changing it up, these movies will have a new approach to them) and probably Atlantis if they ever make it bc it's so underrated, it's a personal favourite (diverse characters in the original so no need for big debates) and it has so much potential as a live action, it could look so amazing with all the new CGI tech we have today. If only they used the tech they used in the Lion King in a movie less "famous AF" (like Atlantis), it would've had more of an impact on me for sure.

                                                                Take the old version, remove the soul and emotions that made the movie successful (even if it was stolen from Kimba), add some super realistic graphics, there you go. Thats what the Lion King 2019 is

                                                                                  So they tried to make so called "real" animals to dance and sing. Am I the only one who thinks, that is the most stupid thing ever? Real lion is not able to talk, sing and dance for a reason. A real lion does not have muscles and bones required for such actions. A real lion's face is emotionless. That's why it works with traditional animation and would work in cartoony 3d animation, but does not in freaking "realistic" 3d. Disney, you blew it once again.

I enjoyed the movie but there's no expression on the faces of each character...that doent help. So, in turn, that made the characters a little bland. However, the visuals, the music, and the real to life animals make the movie so enjoyable to watch. I want to see it again because of that.

They replaced Whoopie Goldberg with someone who whispers in a voice I guess they think is somehow scary? The only joke they even made was "don't stand so close....yeah that's a better distance" and noone laughed at it...some great visuals though and the timone (sp?) Voice actor was decent I guess
