    Well I guess there is no need for me to see this. CGI does not impress me. Good screenwriting & originality does. I was never all that into The Lion King in the 1st place. I thought maybe I would see this, but based on reviews... nah. I did go see Aladdin and I don't know WTF that was but it wasn't Aladdin. Spoilers, Jasmine is not trying to get her choice in husband, she wants to rule as Sultan and she gets her wish, chases after Aladdin in Disney's most cringe role reversal yet. The Feminazis really fucked that one up.

    The point of doing a remake is to tell the same story in a different way. I didn't watch the movie yet, but for what you say, Jon Favreau failed at this....

    Sadly this sums up many recent movies - wonderful visuals and fantastic Atmos sound but it lacks SOUL . I'll stick to the classic thanks . Another Disney money grab. 🙁🙁

    What they have done is monumental for sure -- they have set back the "art" of CGI back by about 40 years or so. Not to mention the art of moviemaking ...

    I agree with pretty much every thing here... I mean, why make a CGI remake of an animated cartoon? What's the point? Sure it looks astonishing but it isn't such a marvel or something completely new/different. We've seen very good and realistic CGI animals in other movies, and it is really difficult to understand the value of this other than nostalgia. Sure, Disney doesn't give a crap about it as long as they make huge bucks but it doesn't really make sense as a viewer to care for these so spineless remakes.

    I think the reason I’m so exited for this film is the same reason I saw it on broadway, at Disneyland, and at my brothers school. I want to see the same thing just in a different medium.

    I felt nothing with this film. They even butchered the Stampede scene with the piece: “To Die For” was slowed down and had its emotional impact removed

    We don't need a second Lion King in my opinion. It's perfectly fine to just upgrade the graphs but that's not the point of a review.... You say it's almost exactly the same but souless . Which means you don't like the animation tech for face expressions and stuff but you also praise the tech used. Confusing review...

    Lion King (CGI version) would had been better if each characters had an african accent like Black Panther since the movie is taken place in Africa.

    I do plan on seeing the lion king but the little Mermaid will be the last live action remake I’ll see all these remakes are carbon copy and lack the expression that animation does It’s the same with remakes/ reboots in general like can you come up with something else can you move forward I’m pretty sure your writers and women have ideas that can make you money

    I Really Loved ‘Alladin’✨It was funny and had new things💕🎉Maybe not much new things, but Will Smith Was Funny and The movie it’s self was great. But this Lion King Movie Doesn’t Really Interest Me...And it doesn’t seem as funny as the original✨But maybe it will be good, not sure for now...

    Why was this movie even made? What's the point in remaking a movie if they're not even gonna add or change anything to make it unique? The original still exists, we don't need an uglier version with realistic looking animals. No thanks Disney.

    Hey Chris, If you are a gamer, how do you feel about the approach to game studios and their remakes (or remasters) of games? Many only add updated graphics, much like Disney is doing with these films. I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

    Disney has been going downhill since susan butterworth got rid of all the character artists in the consumer products division. Like getting rid of the pilots when you own an airline.

    It’s a shame that they did not added anything about Zira/the outlanders/Taka backstory before Scar and went shot for shot because I would have loved to see plotholes between the first and Lion King 2 fixed.
