This was the most fun I've had watching a movie in the last year! This movie delivers on the promise! Everything I was hoping for! Finally we have a movie taking place in the daylight rather than all dark and gloom that tends to hide the action from the viewer in most movies of this genre. Every punch, claw, chokehold and atomic breath is there to be seen clearly in all it's glory!
Normally not my type of movie, this movie was an exception. This had a tremendous cast led off by a remarkable young actress I'd never seen. Sophie Nelisse gave a powerful performance and one I will not forget anytime too soon. The story was emotionally humorous, dramatic and honest. I will be looking forward to see what Sophie Nelisse has to offer in the future.
I knew going in that this movie had nothing new to say but the visual world this movie presented had me spellbound through each and every scene. As in the original, I had goosebumps during the opening sequence. Very emotional! The beautiful music we have loved is there along with new beautiful music. The actor voices were on spot and it was nice to see new jokes by our favorites, Timon and Pumbaa voiced by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen. Did this movie need to be remade? No. But I'm sure glad it was with this excellent cast and beautiful visuals. Loved it!
