Lion King (Live-action)

“Lion King” is directed by Jon Favreau and it stars Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Oliver, and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. This movie is the live-action remake of the 1994 Lion King. This movie follows the same story as the animated one did word-to-word they were nothing different about it.

The one problem that I am currently having with these live-action movies which I think I talked about in my Aladdin review on how exactly it is from the original animated movie and they are not changing much in the story. Like I get it you want the younger audience to have the same feeling as we older people had when we watched the movie back as a kid. However, you are just repeating the movie as it was back in 1994. There is nothing different from it. The same action to the same songs it almost becomes boring to watch it.

I honestly do not have anything worth saying anything nice of the movie because like I said before I already saw the movie. The definite stand out was the CGI of the characters of the movie and the cast of the movie. For me, that stands out the most was Seth Rogen’s performance. He felt perfect with the character.

The thing I did not like about the movie was how exactly it was from the original story that felt like I was watching the animated one again.

I honestly might say stay with the animated one but also watch this one for it’s CGI of the animals and the performance of the characters.

Rating: 3/5
