    The Lion King is what most of Disney's live-action remakes have been, the same story just with more updated visual effects. 7.0/10 GOOD: -The visual effects gorgeous, and felt like watching a nature documentary -James Earl Jones as Mufasa was great like the original -Seth Rogan and Billy Eichner stole the show as Pumba and Timon -Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar was very convincing and he took a more grounded approach that worked well -The Hyenas were really good and held up to the originals -Kid Simba and kid Nala gave strong performances -Mufasa's death scene made my heart race and was well crafted and shot -John Oliver as Zazu was solid -John Kani as Rafiki gave a solid performance -The jokes landed almost every time thanks to the great delivery from Rogan and Eichner OKAY: -Beyonce and Donald Glover's performances as Nala and Simba, sometimes it was strong other times fell flat -Musical numbers were okay, nothing really special -It added nothing to the original film unlike Jungle Book which did back in 2016 BAD: -Sometimes because the animals are so realistic emotional connection is lost and the characters lack expression

    Beautiful CG. Gorgeous movie but lacked all the humor that made the original animated movie a favorite to all.

    The story line is very inspirational. The cinematography is INCREDIBLE! The music is great! It is an all-around wonderful experience. The seating in the theater is very comfortable and affords an excellent view of the screen. A MUST SEE!!!

    I was just out of high school when the original came out and it was instantly a favorite. I was a little jealous that this version wasnt available back then because it was so good! Great animation and it gave me all the feels, happy and sad, that the original one did. Still one of my favorites!
