Like ‘Aladdin’ (2019) I’ve seen this version so many times. So, I’ve grown to like it. This will no where ever be as good as the original but I like it!
Off the top of my head:
- Started watching this because, again today, because Aubrey said kitty cat
- Aubrey loves watching this
- I started watching this when Disney first put it out on Disney+ and just had it on early one morning that Aubrey woke up. Circle of Life was on and when the camera pans up to Mufasa she yelled out “kitty cat”
- She raises her hands when circle of life is sung
- When I first saw this I thought it was better than Aladdin 2019
- Now I am joy in trust as much as Aladdin
- Some songs didn’t work as well in this version
- Didn’t like ‘Can’t wait to be king’
- Why did they even bother making Scar sing Because Prepared’?
- The special effects are outstanding
- They did so good with the special effects
- Every shot is almost flawless
- I’m snobby and feel like I can find the moments that you can tell it’s not real
- I like the little added bits that they included in the movie
- Just a little added bits like the mouse at the beginning
- Tweaks to dialogue
- The inclusion of additional animals with Timon and Pumbaa
- Everything with Timon and Pumbaa made me laugh
- Everyone they picked as the voice actors was great
- Yes including Beyoncé LOL
- Bring him back James Earl Jones was a great choice because who else could be the voice of mufasa
- Donald Glover as Simba is a perfect choice
- I feel like I’m the only one that didn’t mind the talking animals in this “live action” lion king
- Let’s talk about that – this movie is NOT live action
- This is 99.9% CGI
- The only shot in this movie that was not was the very first image of the sun rising
3 out of 4 stars
Mostly because of Aubrey and how she loves the movie.
Don’t you dare shut it off!
