    If all the characters are CGI, it's not live action. They're not real lions, they are computer generated, made to look real.

        Is it a symbolic thing for Disney to make the mouse alive til the end of the Lion King movie? Because of Mickey? The face of Disney? Even in End Game, the mouse basically was the hero 😂😂

            hi. for everyone who keeps talking about its the same movie bla bla bla. If they took a different way to the film u would all be saying "stop changing the lion king keep it like it was" all day. It is a good movie. why its soulless is because its not animated on a paper. its actually cgi and its hard to make a lion smile as widely as u would like it. its just not realistic. and the movie still managed to have good expressions on the lions and animals and it did take a dofferent approach to a few scenes and made it blend well with the original story so many people love. it was a great movie. showing us how it would look like if it was real. 7/10 from me.

              Yes, it was a scene by scene remake. But so what? Haven't you ever read a great book 25 years apart? I needed a rehash. And to children it was brand new! The animals were incredibly realistic. At the end, the theater burst into applause. I can't remember the last time I saw that happen.

                I'm gonna have to disagree with you there, the movie does not look realistic....if anything, Hollywood has regressed when it comes to....well....everything.....

                Rotten Tomatoes is ABSOLUTE shit and they are shills......anything that comes from that site I hold no value towards....

                      I went to see this movie with my Mum and Sister and they adored it. They loved seeing exactly the same thing with real animals and said they would watch it again. All it did for me was remind me how much character and charm the original, and how I'd prefer to be watching that.

                        Hey I loved Aladdin :(
                        Yeah it had its faults, but it had heart. Something Lion King didn't have.

                          I don't mind them remaking Lion King in CG, but they used the wrong style! Photo realism won't get you the facial expressions and exaggeration of the original. What they should have done is use the style of the Madagascar movies. Those films had expressive cartoony characters with lots of exaggeration but it was still CG which has more interesting textures and lighting than the original Lion King.

                                    If timone and pumbaa weren't funny in this remake, I would've left the theater, no doubt. They were the life of the movie. But this movie was SOO DISAPPOINTING. Had soo much potential but it just ended up being another cash grab by disney.....

                                      If they had used humans, that would have been different. The point of all these remakes is seeing real people in the roles. Swapping pens and pencils with CGI is not a big enough change. They just spent a ton of money making new cartoon that takes the heart out of the movie.

                                          literally nobody:

                                          Disney: Hey, let's remake the Lion King but this time it will be shitty....

                                              Correct me if Im wrong, I am more than happy to admit if Im wrong.. But doesnt Disney do all of these live actions to renew the licenses of the movies?
                                              and live actions is a different way to portray the movies... thats what Ive heard is the case.

                                                I had chills watching the movie. I thought it was great I don't care if it's just the same movie I want to watch it again.

                                                  Its thanks to guys like this one that sometimes film companies butcher originals (Death Note for example) Whats so wrong to want to watch the same movie but visually improved? It makes Disney money and brings nostalgia to people. Why change it? Want something different lion movie and call it something else.

                                                    The big question is. It the movie makes changes and tries somthing new, are we now watching the it deviated to far from the source review?

If they changed things, people would whine that they changed the film. If they kept it shot-for-shot like this, people whine it's nothing new. There's no win at all. I don't understand why people cry about things like this.

The facial expressions were just not there All the heart and emotion is totally removed from these movies. I hate these damn cash grabs

                                                                                          Dude! We are old. It's for a new generation to see and for our generation see how well technology has progressed. They gave Scar a lot more back story with his dialog and of course there was lack of facial expressions but yeah, they are suppose to be real life animals. My wife and I saw it today with our kids and we were shock and awe at how realistic it looked, frame from frame from the original and our kids watched it as something new. I do agree that the scene with rafiki hitting Simba on the head should have been in the movie as it was a progressive point for the film. I seriously look at it like the mortal Kombat franchise. They just keep revamping the game to see what these characters will look like with modern technology. I'm fine with this remake. Anyone is welcome to disagree.
