    I have yet to watch anything but the initial trailer.

    I haven't seen any of the songs. I want to go in surprised at how they do them.

    I give zero fucks about people shitting on this remake.

    I’ll be watching on the 18th.

    It’s ok if it’s not as good as the Original. The original is perfection.

    Curious how many of the people giving negative reviews of the new version have recently watched the original (prior to the mention of the remake being done) just because... they wanted to randomly watch an old cartoon movie. Guessing the percentage is < 5%, if any at all. It's a movie made for kids. Adults planning on watching the remake are doing so because of nostalgia. If it was an original movie and not a remake from their childhood they wouldn't be interested at all in watching a CGI Disney movie.

    All the "negative reactions" to the Hakuna Matata clip are from adults that wouldn't even have watched it in the first place if it wasn't a remake of a cartoon they watched as a kid. The only reviews of this movie that should mean a fucking thing are the opinions of kids. Grown ass adults talking shit about a childrens movie need to take their bowl of dick and get back on the couch and watch Netflix serial killer docs.

    seriously the only question that needs to be considered for an adult - did your kid(s) enjoy it? Sorry you wasted ~$10 on something that didn't live up to some expectations you built in your head.

    <3 I bet your kids will love it. Which is literally the only "review" that matters. It's not a PG-13 remake made for adults. And not in the Pixar genre that's kid movies with a lot of adult-intended content included.

    100%. My son will watch his movie and hopefully fall in love with it like I did the original.

    And then I’ll be spending hundreds of dollars in toys for the next 10 months

    No shit... the first was a colorful cartoon.

    This isn’t going to be a colorful cartoon.

    Sorry to break it to people but the pride lands are dry and bland.

    TIL that Be prepared is sung by two different people. Jeremy Irons sung the first verse and Jim Cummings (voice of Ed) sung the 2nd verse.

    Amazing how lazy they used to be about getting these now legendary songs done. Beginning of Aladdin has a different person with a completely different voice singing a line that was changed in post-production because it was too savage. No way that flies in 2019. They would have re-sung the entire song to get it right.

    I thought it was great. Timon and Pumba killed it. Not having seen anything from Zazzu was good, Oliver was really good. Glover out did Beyonce, but both were great. Lot's of "political" overtones for adults that may turn some people off. All in all given that Lion King was is my favorite Disney movie I go a full 10/10. The visuals are insane.

    It's perfect for what they were aiming for.

    That was a hot mess.

    Absolutely stunning design, and 90% of the script was lifted from the original.

    But it was soulless. It was stilted. The actors were horribly directed (the biggest surprise for me). Everything was read and sung with all the enthusiasm of a captain's announcement on an airplane.

    I had high hopes too and the fact that the animals didn't emote as much as the hand-drawn animated versions didn't bother me at all except for one or two moments. It was the line delivery that ruined it for me.

    Hearing the right words said and sung in the wrong way was like uncanny valley for my ears. And I don't just mean "the actors didn't use not the same inflections as the animated actors did" but just the way they read the lines didn't feel connected to the context of the scene.

    Remember when when Mufasa talks to SImba after he gets in trouble in the graveyard? Remember how natural the back-and-forth between them was? Go back and watch that scene...



    It's like two actual people talking.

    The same scene in the movie sounds like two people were given words on a page, without any context, and told to just speak into the mic.

    positive was Timon and Pumba. Hilarious. They had the most new material and it all worked, but when they had to recreate the old scenes it felt forced.
