- Funny and very cute5 star

I loved this movie because of how funny pua and tomon are I also like as in any realistic Disney movie how cute the little baby’s are they are so cute!!!!!! 🥺 But I also loved the movie for it was a little bit different then the first. Now that that is out of the way I want to say that well...Disney does not know any more movies to make any more so someone comes into the room while they are thinking and says “hey why don’t we just take our old movies and copy them but in our style now of making Disney movies” someone at the table says “what a great idea” then this is how it ends up they are already working on Mulan they have already done: lion king, Cinderella, alladin, there is actually a version of real life Ariel but it’s very different, sleeping beauty and that’s it but you get my point and they basically have already done Alice in wonderland so copycats watcha you gonna do next .huh!

- Too much feminism1 star

I had such high hopes for this movie but it was ruined by all the feminism. First of all the leader of the villains was changed to a female for no reason. Scar is not as prominent anymore. Nala laughs at Simba because he’s a guy. And mocks him after he couldn’t defend her from the hyenas. Throughout the whole movie Nala, puns and takes out Simba all the time, but the only time he actually pins her down in the original movie was removed, and she mocks him even more when she does. Finally in the final battle scene, there was far more screen time given to the females, and Simba even needed to be saved once by Nala. It was made out that the woman battle was the more important battle. This movie was a terrible remake of the original, and I hope this trend doesn’t continue

- This is not a great remake.1 star

Disney has done a remarkable job remaking Disney classics. But Lion King is not a great remake. It feels like watching nat geo with celebrity voice overs. No emotion in the animal faces.

- Surprisingly good5 star

I really enjoyed the realism here. It served the story themes (loyalty, betrayal, maturity, responsibility) better than the cell animation version. And a nice bonus was the physical quirks and attributes of the actual animals upon which these more realistic characters were based.

- The King of Disney Live Action5 star

This Movie was so good like the original but what I loved about what they they did with this movie is that they remastered the music score, and added more detail to this epic story. This movie isn't just a animated movie... its the King of Disney Live Action movies.

- Loved it5 star

Best movie Disney does it again absolutely loved it it’s the great circle of life I loved the 1994 version but I love the 2019 even better as well great movie.

- 😭Sad and Go yeah 💪🏾5 star

This movie is sad and encouraging. I love this movie.And Beyoncé sung awesome.I don’t care what everyone says but it was awesome.CGI was amazing it looks so real.

- It was like watching a documentary on National Geograpic1 star

What a waste of time because what's the point of watching this remake where i can watch the original instead this is like a double feature.

- Best movie5 star

I know that some people don’t like live-action remakes but this one was amazing definitely up there I always see the remakes and I think that some of better then others but for this one it was about the same for me

- Good movie4 star

This was a good movie. It was very close to the original. There were some changes but it’s cause with live action you can do what the original did. There were some added things which kept it fresh and new. That was a great idea. The voice acting was good. The music was true with added music. The design on the animals were very nice. I recommend this to any Disney fan.

- The most disrespectful thing that Disney has ever done1 star

The original Lion King is amazing, it left a huge impact on animation for being the highest grossing 2D animated film ever made. It was also backed up with an engaging story, memorable characters, fantastic songs, and a deep message about handling the death of loved ones. Clearly, Disney doesn’t understand the meaning of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and this atrocious demake shows how much money Disney is willing to scam out of people’s nostalgia for these classic films. There’s so much more to the original Lion King outside of nostalgia, the whole film has aged flawlessly, it’s a timeless masterpiece. This demake does absolutely nothing to make it stand out as it’s own movie. In fact, literally everything has been severely butchered, all of the emotion, beauty and intensity of the original is gone. It’s so awful that when Mufasa got killed in the “”””live action”””” demake, I was actually laughing for how terrible it was. I think it’s safe to say that this is the low-point of Disney, it’s a souless, shameless, disrespectful, and disgraceful piece of junk that spits all over the original, further encouraging the awful stereotype that “animation is just for kids,” you can’t say that when A. That is a completely false statement, animation deserves far more respect than it gets from the general public. B. this horrible demake is entirely animated, just trying to look as realistic as it can. Don’t waste your money on this horrific downgrade of the Lion King, go spend the money on the 1994 version instead. It’s more expressive, more engaging, has better acting, and it’s the more timeless version, because 10 or 20 years from now, the 2019 Lion King is going to be seen as nothing more than a product of it’s time with no purpose. I seriously hope Disney finally wakes up and realizes that the film’s quality is what comes first, not the money.

- Mystery of animation movie5 star

Only Lion King 2020 I have no words for explanation my comment for audience but it is no reason why that excellent! It is just really excellent. Soundtrack also good quality of production, easy to listen, relax and full of artist effective. 2/27/2020 after my first rate date near weeks, I watch Lion King 2019 again. However, I found something wired and strange was Zumba mature face when it fellow elder monkey to lake to the fights to Scar, it’s face changed different from the original when first and second time I watched my own Lion King movie in iTunes. The different is the eyebrow is awful look. The face color was edited look like Scar that but not it’s father Mufasa. The whole easy audience atmosphere was about this strange edition became lessen. It was not only Zumba face, all cubs body was the golden yellow mix with parts of grey. It was not appear when my first and second time watch Lion King. This aspects did happened when I watched “Joker “ in cinema and then in iTunes. Some menu script was different from the first I watch in cinema. But I don’t expect if my bought movie in ITunes would be or can changed by theft or piracy. Apple should think about the security and illegal liability of copy right of version of purchaser.

- Horrible Remake! No imagination!1 star

I hated this remake of my most beloved Disney movie of all time. It feels like that you all rushed it. You all should’ve taken your time to make this remake really good instead of making it like this. “Be Prepared” and “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” weren’t imaginative. “Be Prepared was shortened, and too lazy. You put your imagination stuff in the other remakes, but why not this one? You all should’ve brought the original actors back. I mean you brought back James Earl Jones for Mufasa, and I understand why some of them couldn’t come back like Young Simba, Young Nala, Rafiki, and Sarabi. But why couldn’t you bring back like, Nathan Lane for Timon, Ernie Sabella for Pumbaa, Jeremy Irons for Scar, and all of those guys? And another thing that sucked was that there weren’t any expressions on the characters faces throughout the movie. And this movie is a shot of shot of the original movie, and too close to the original one. I’m proud of the animation, and the visual effects in the movie, but it was disappointing with all of the stuff that I explained. Disney, you guys ruined this movie for everyone! Horrible! You guys are better than that, and that means you Jon Favreau!

- 🔥🔥🔥love it5 star

This was so far the best movie I watched this year so far. Visual is speechless good iob🔥💪🏽

- Ok !2 star

This is ok. I some of the new voices. I still love Jeremy irons as scar. The music in the original is a lot better.

- Great movie5 star

Believe it or not the whole entire movie my dog would not stop watching this movie that’s how good it was



- I can’t speak right5 star

I ha ha ha ha o come onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

- Disney could have done better.1 star

I personally thought it was boring and Disney could have done so much more with this film. Be prepared was more like a chant then a song and for those who love Disney villains (like myself) it ruined the original song. Scar himself was to over the top and his voice was to low; Scar was amazing in the original and Disney shouldn’t have changed his personality. Timon wasn’t as endearing as the old one neither was Pumba. The only Characters they got right were Mufasa and Rafiki. Over all the ruined the movie for me.

- BEST5 star

I loved it so much!!tho it was the same story line(spoiler sorry)it was outstanding tho it’s not theater worthy still good and good for kids love the songs!!!!!!

- Great4 star

This movie really captures the reality I guess half of the big hit and the only bad part in my opinion is the singing I mean it’s not bad but it’s not the same as it once was in the original

- Not as good as the original4 star

The effects in this movie is STUNNING, but it has nowhere near the emotion and heart of the original. Still good though

- Be Prepared to be bored1 star

Literally the whole time during the movie I kept looking to see what time it was.

Hi the lion king

- the lion king 🤴🦁5 star

The lion king is the best movie 🎥.because It’s about the two little lion🦁🦁🦁.things do not look good right now because one of the worst lions SCAR is on there track😈😈😈. I hope that simba will be ok 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾.my opinion about the lion king is that this movie is the best 😚😚😚😚.thanks for reading 📖 📖📖.

- Trash1 star

Absolute garbage. Don’t try to include stuff form the animated version, and vector off. (Like the exact words from the script) Just make a new one with a similar plot. It just felt forced to try and get through it. These “live action” Disney films are just not for me. I tried going in with a clean slate, came out very disappointed. Beyoncé did well as Nalla. Seth Roger was a stupid cast. Filled it with big names and it was a terrible experience.

- Amazing5 star

I love it I grew up watching lion king and was so excited about the live action remake it totally surpass my expectations

- OK4 star

Hard to get into it because the animals really do not show emotions. So it feels kinda bland.

- Monstrosity1 star

This movie is a disgrace to The Lion King (one of the greatest animated features of ALL TIME) the 1994 masterpiece. All the animators worked their butt off, but with this NAH! Just copy/paste hideous SGI film the background and apparently it still qualifies as “live action”. This is a HORRIBLE example of shameless cash grabbing remakes and I LIKED the Disney live action remakes up to this point (I even defended BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and Maleficent) but I can not defend this trash whatsoever 0/10

- A good Disney film3 star

It did have good songs and good acting choices But it is an hit or miss for me (well mostly an hit) It was fine🙂


The worse remake I have ever seen it was an over all disappointment and a huge let down I expected more from Disney! Horrible casting and I enjoy most of those actors and actresses. The singing let alone was awful but didn’t even line up with the same speed of their mouths as well as their talking. But I’m not going to waste anymore time on this!

- So much better than Aladdin5 star

My family was disappointed with the remake with Aladdin, which lost the magic of having an actual comic doing the gene. The Lion King remake was great, & kept the spirit & tone of the original, along with the music. I think to many folks are just giving bad reviews because they want to be listened to. My four year old was entertained, as was I. It’s is not the exact replica of the original, but I think it was improved where it could be improved, & left untouched by the good idea fairy that happens when folks with no imagination try to improve something great by changing it. If you can still watch the original & be entertained, watch this remake. If your looking for that critic & politic pandering remake that changed everything, look elsewhere.

- Disney Nailed it5 star

I’ve always felt that people are way to critical of the new Disney Live Action Remakes. No one should expect them to match the magic of their original cartoon. As for being 3 years old when the Lion King came out, it instantly became a phenomenon for kids in my generation. I in no way expected the Live action Remake to be as magical, but it was still a beautifully made movie, with a great cast, and I cannot wait to share this movie with my future children. IMO, the best Disney Live Action Remake to date.

- Absolutely Beautiful5 star

It was amazing! Would definitely watch again...😭

- Cringeworthy Voice Overs1 star

All actors but Seth Rogan (Pumbaa) and Billy Eichner (Timon) were very disconnected from their characters. I was really excited to see this movie but found myself cringing the whole movie. It is unfortunate they didn't find better actors.

- I can feel the love tonight 😻😻5 star

Jon favarou has done it again this year!!!!! This is his best work since iron man, chef, and the jungle book. If Jon favarou does more Disney remakes I’ll be prepared for it cause I just can’t wait for this

- Outstanding5 star

I saw the original animated movie when it originally came out in theaters. It is my second favorite Disney movie. With that being said I was hesitant to watch this new version. I wish I had not waited, It was breathtaking!! I’m at a loss reading all the negative reviews.

- ThisThejhdvdodliuuzkjigcufkjbncgfgyjjxpj5 star


- good message4 star

Defiantly lacks the magic and emotions of the original along with better singing. Loved: the entire plot kind of mirrors Scar and his army of millennials as CNN (fake news)and the liberals promising a better utopia under socialism/communism and it's quick and abrupt downfall as there is no more resources left (or no more hard working people to steal from)

- Be Prepared3 star

The animation was great. It looked realistic. However, the acting could have been better. I just did not understand the random Italian accent at the end of the movie. Other then that, the story was about the same as the orginal.

- Meh1 star

It lacked the emotion and depth of the original. I just could not connect with the cgi characters. They lacked the expression of the original. The voice actors lacked emotion as well. When Simba saw his dad fall to his death in the original I heard the pain in his voice as he cried out, I cried too. This one I’m sorry but the voice actors just missed the mark.

The animation is something to be seen. Otherwise everything about this movie is worse than the previous version. I don’t even care for the original but it’s better in every way. There’s something lost in the facial animation of the animals. Barely any emotion.

Miran187 - B1 star

Over priced

[email protected] - Wasted $251 star

The visuals were great but the rest was pathetic.

asifali - Nope. This was a bad remake.3 star

Remakes aren't easy to sell; especially, when the original was a masterpiece. Only few people get it right when it comes to making remakes; Child's Play is a good example. As for this version of Lion King goes, it seems like they just wanted to spend money on CGI, and nothing more--no story revival, no added fact, they cut out the best parts and killed some of the popular characters; such as, Ed and his hysterical laugh. Hehehehehe "It's not funny, Ed!" Ed laughs again. Thank God I rented this movie for 0.99C 🌚🤤

Krazykilla165 - Amazing5 star

This in my opinion was better than the original amazing!!

spencee88 - lack luster1 star

dont waste your time. sitck with the original animated film.

TrevorFather - Just ok3 star

The movie is good enough to watch through, but it is by no means as good as the original. The voices aren’t as iconic and seem forced. The new soundtrack is a disappointment because its not as good as the original and somewhat irritating. What I did like are the few scences added that show things like Nala leaving pride rock to find help.

EW unwind - It’s a terrible, soulless cash grab1 star

If you, like me, had low expectations due to the poor critical reviews, but though “aww, it’ll still be enjoyable popcorn stuff”, think again. Please don’t waste your money, it’s actually so terrible. Watch the original.

CrimsonYT - Not the worst, but not good.2 star

Was it good? No, but is it the worst thing ever like how people are describing it as? Definitely not. The film is visually gorgeous and you have to appreciate how stunning it looks... but that’s where the praise ends. The new voice cast just did not work and doesn’t touch the original in terms of quality.

Virgil S. - Similar, Different, Better, Worse4 star

Like most of the other Disney remakes, holds fairly true to the original storyline. There are a few interesting digressions, including backstory for Nala's leaving Pride Rock and a greater fleshing out of Simba's life in the oasis. Some homages to the original film and other Disney movies are worth a chuckle. The score is spectacular, although some of the songs ("Be Prepared", "Can You Feel the Love") fall far short of the original. Characters are a mixed bag. I liked Scar and adult Simba more in this version, but the hyenas had the personality sucked clean out of them, Timon and Pumbaa weren't as lovable, and supporting characters like Zazu and cub Simba were really hurting for their original voice actors. A mixed bag overall. 3.5/5 stars.

the great tyrone - Trash1 star

This movie is the worst trash I’ve ever seen. Couldn’t even watch more then 15 mins without falling asleep. Do not recommend. I’m about to get a refund

d oh evheidhdbend - Best movie 20195 star

I loved the movie it was amazing

ricky rocket11 - What a crap movie1 star

All the things you loved about the original characters are lost Neat seeing talking lions and such but the characters and songs are nothing like the original. Remember how funny the hyenas were in the original... they took out all of that. Timon and pumba were more annoying than anything. Not worth the 25 bucks to see computer generated animals Wait for it to come on net flix

Undrgrndkng - Not as good2 star

Should’ve used original voice cast. Felt like a butchered classic. Mufasa was the best part because he sounded authentic to this story.

Nomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnoooom - Felt like a stage show.2 star

The Special Effects and Animation were great. Could not get over how obvious it was that the main characters sounded like their singer counterparts. Was like an Off-Broadway version. And Scar talking his way through "Be Prepared?!" Cringeworthy. Timon and Pumba rocked. Rafiki, Zazu, Scar, Simba, Nala, Hyenas were pure let-downs. Next time, get one or two gimic big name side characters like usual, and then let the voice actors do their actual job.

Truly a work of art, I can never have too much lion king content and to have more versions is wonderful. Love the original, love the new. I still can’t get over how beautiful adult simba looks

Hooverfilms - Very disappointing2 star

Movie is rushed, it has no character depth, its colour palette is that of a pile of dirt, there’s nothing original about this, the only redeeming factor is the visuals. Nothing flows, there is no emotion in any scene whatsoever. Watch the original which is superior in ever way.

Absolutely garbage. Visually spectacular, empty story, empty characters. Could've watching a BBC documentary with voiceover and it would've been better.

Oscar JM OXD - Two words: CASH. GRAB.2 star

Sure, Aladdin was another Disney reboot that no one asked for, but that film actually did some things differently from the original 1992 classic. But THIS IS NO DIFFERENT Except that it’s “live action” and it added a Beyoncé single that’s likely to steal an Oscar nomination. Buy the original one instead.

kennerd123 - Extraordinary!5 star

It was the best Disney remake I’ve ever been to! I’m so happy that Disney remade this movie, there are a few changes but they stayed to the original storyline the whole time. The whole theatre started laughing when the incorporation of beauty and the beast when Timon and Pumbaa were distracting the hyenas . Great job Disney!

If you loved the animated film, you’ll enjoy the remake. The same story, but with new jokes, & dialogue. Just be warned if you’re watching this with young children, Scar & the Hyenas are definitely frightening.

DanKnoop - Perfect5 star

Don’t listen to the negative reviews! If you loved the original you’ll love this. This is a perfect re-telling of this amazing story with some update humour, graphics, and music. All the best parts are still there and we are left with what I can only imagine really happens when we’re not around animals.

M.dog3!4!9! - Great inspiration5 star

Simba is inspired by his father to be king great funny scary story about Simba getting to the top of the ladder

Chipstar_d - Gorgeous but dialogue is non-dynamic4 star

This movie is stunning. My only issue is the dialogue has lost its dynamic. It’s not urgent, it’s very controlled like a live musical e.g. when the hyenas are in the pridelands it’s kind of casual dialogue. The Disney version had urgency and personality. But there are some cinematography moments that gave me chills, notably Shenzi and Rafiki. It’s a gorgeous film to watch and the emotion is there, but the Disney movie had the dialogue engagement.

Just watch the original. I thought it was going to be better but they took out a lot of scenes that were funny like the Mr Pig scene. And there’s no facial expression on the characters. 1/5 Rating for me.

bk2028 - Incredible movie5 star

This movie is just simply incredible. The CGI is this movie is amazing the lions look so realistic so does there environment. The vice acting and the music is wonderful. This movie does the original film justice but also brings the movie into modern times. Love the film it’s a must watch 10/10.

hellotherewhaosh - Why1 star

Bland carbon copy minus the amazing voice acting, animated expressions and life of the original, not to mention the let down that was be prepared

Poppis4eva - Great movie! Only one complaint.5 star

This movie it’s exactly like the original just with a few little tweaks with things, singing was powerful and great. Voice acting was great! Beyoncé could have done about better. ( to thick with her accent, only while talking tho) and my only one complaint is they could have shown a tiny bit more emotion in the faces but with that being said they made it so realistic cause lions don’t show that much expression. Sure some funny things aren’t in the film but they replaced it with something cool and much more realistic. I loved it 9/10

pewdiepie likes pie - So cute5 star

The lion was so cute

timwill2 - The Lion King!!!5 star

Amazing movie. I went to watch it at my theatre and it was amazing. I loved the end though. It was pretty funny when Timon and PUMBA are distracting the hyenas. And I just noticed that Timon sung Be Our Guest from Beauty And The Beast. When the camera pulled back to reveal PUMBA was funny. And when I quote him saying “It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight and now as you relax, let us pull up a chair, as the dining room proudly presents you dinner. Be our guest!” That was the funniest part I have ever saw and I cracked up laughing in my cinema. It was so funny. I am glad that they put the Easter egg in there. It was so good. Thank you so much for the remakes. Sincerely yours MP23 Studios

Suellen71 - Lion King5 star

I've just returned from watching the new Lion King in the cinema and was blown away. It was incredible how realistic the animals were, and it all stayed true to the story I have loved for 25 years. Beyonce's song Spirit is placed well in the movie and although I'm not a huge fan (sorry) I thought it fit well with all the incredible classics that were already part of one of the best movie soundtracks of all time. Not to mention Elton's new song too. Go and see it!!

best Disney movie yet, although it did lack comedy it was still a great film

Thomas Robson - Great movie5 star

Just got home from seeing it at the cinemas. Great film I’m watching the original movie now

That's Mr P to you - Awful1 star

The cgi is incredible and very well down but it is done at the expense of the overall film. The vocal acting lacks personality and has completely stripped the humour and soul from the film. The songs have been mellowed down to mediocre versions that have you yawning instead of tapping your toes. The new songs are just awful, particularly that new Beyoncé one. Horrendous! I went in with high hopes for the film and left leaving bitterly disappointed. Watch the original. It’s superior in every way!

Daniel 1966 - Not what you expected? Good...4 star

I believe most Disney Fans were expecting a verbatim reprisal of the animated classic; that was a mistake. This vividly colorful and soulful retelling is filled with new and spectacular visual effects as well as the emotional anchoring that gives this version LIFE. It’s up to you to REMEMBER what this story is all about. It’s fun, favorably pleasing and Hans Zimmer’s Score still rocks.

I missed the music and songs from the original. But the cinematography was spectacular. I would stick with the original and skip this one.

Little scary for kids who frighten easy at the start bc the lions look so real but after that it was super cute!

Treadstone 71X - Visually stunning, but utterly banal3 star

I don’t review movies often, but the 1990s animated Lion King was one of the three or four movies that basically defined my childhood, and I feel compelled to express my disappointment in this rehashed CGI version. Visually, it’s one of the most stunning things I’ve ever seen, but apart from that it’s...frankly utterly forgettable. A big part of it is that almost no effort is made to differentiate this film from its predecessor. The only ones that are really any different are Scar and the hyenas. The rest are basically nearly exact replicas of their animated counterparts, only less interesting. Chitewel Ejiofor’s performance as a less sarcastic and more obviously embittered Scar is vaguely interesting, but the hyenas lose everything that made them such great characters originally, becoming basically forgettable minions. The other big disappointment is James Earl Jones’s second turn as Mufasa, who seems so utterly disinterested that his death is robbed of much of its emotional impact. As for the rest of the cast, they’re pretty much exactly the same characters. Overall, of the recent crop of remakes Disney has released, the utter banality of the Lion King makes it the weakest one by far.

Okay I’m so in love with this movie!! I enjoyed every second of it! I have always loved lion king and as soon as I found out a live action was coming out I was so excited! And it was so worth watching! Of course there will always be people that don’t seem to understand how much work it takes to make these movies so they just right away judge it with negativity and rate it a 1 star but I disagree with them! This was a beautiful heart touching movie that I consider one of my top favorite Disney movies!!🙌🏻🧡

M_H29 - What more do you want?4 star

A lot of people complain about it being the same movie and doing nothing new (honestly though, what else can you do with it that the original film and the broadway show show haven’t already done), but if you’re a Lion King fan then I can’t imagine you being disappointed; it was never going to be as good or better than the original.

Christopher J. Gill - Outstanding Visual Performance, Terrible Audio Performance3 star

The original movie had better music and better acting hands down. The only breath of fresh air is Seth Rogan as Puma - well done Seth! The songs were performed very poorly, attempts at humor fell flat. This could still be an amazing film Disney, get rid of the entire audio team and remaster the sound track. Disappointing - our cats loved this! The high fidelity of the visuals made it very appealing for them, and the lousy voice work didn't bother them. 5 stars for cats.

Meh. Disappointment. - Good, not Great3 star

As someone who absolutely loved the original, this movie was a great disappointment. Though the CGI did wonders for bringing the characters to life (that's why I gave it 3 stars, and not fewer), the music and voice acting fell short. Very short. If something is good, even great, DON'T RUIN IT. The changes made to the music, including Circle of Life and Can You Feel The Love Tonight only made it that much harder to watch. The original actually felt like a story, where as this movie felt like a bad play. I'll stick to the original and will not be watching this version again any time soon.

a guy that love cheese - Animal planet Cash grab1 star

Live action Lion King Is just a stupid cash grab. This movie look like something from Animal planet mixed in with some bad Talking dog movies. Live action Aladdin might have been another cash grab but at least Live Action Aladdin was colorful and had Heart put into it.

Fun move, but nowhere near the level of the first. Music is not as good and they cut out some really great scenes.

Inimitable02 - The old Lion King. What a let down1 star

Very deceitful advertising. The listing for Lion Ling stayed that it was released in 2019. I bought it because I had watched the previous version of Lion King years ago. I knew that it had been released long before now. And it turns out this is the Movie Lion King that I have seen multiple times years ago on Cable TV. I felt so cheated.

zidane2015 - Disney wants more. And more, and more...1 star

Disney wants your cash. Again. But this time they're not even selling an original product. Iger's latest money-grab scam is this remake era of garbage, in which Disney defiles its own legacy by peddling pale "live action" imitations of original classics. When you replace Rowan Atkinson with John Oliver, well, that says it all. Don't endorse this affront to art.

Grew up with Cartoon, always wondered what a computer animated version would be like. The scriped is nearly identical, just differant animation. I have Nostalgia for the origial and will never be able to put anything in front of it, but I must say I really liked this version too. I litterally cried, dont tell anyone.

Twoface66 - Disney taking advantage of their fans.2 star

Let me start off with saying some good things first. The music is great and is a good tribute to the original. The visuals were out of this world and they stayed true how Africa really looks. Now the bad. The voice acting done by every single character except Sarabi was emotionless. It’s like they were told to have 0 emotion when speaking their lines. Even an iconic actor with James Earl Jones spoke his lines with almost no emotion and strength. That’s sad because he has such a booming strong voice. I’m glad I didn’t see this movie in the theater and I wish I could get a refund for buying it on iTunes. I feel like movies like this take advantage of my generation. We are going to see this movie because we grew up on it and we are going to bring our children.

Ajandeverything - Old vs New5 star

2019 has more singing and more realistic and more singing and fun!! 1994 has a couple songs missing and not really realistic But both are good but I think the 2019 is better

hngrlvn - Kudos for excellent graphics5 star

I have heard The tenured complaints how the show is not like the original, complaint of sub-par music scores. For those of you who expected ‘The New’ to copy every syllable of the old; shame, shame! Looking at the movie as a child seeing it the first time; amazing! Heartfelt, compassionate, fun, and wonderfully exciting, direct from 55 children! That which was, is. That which is, was. Though it was, it is not, though it is, never was. Forget what was, enjoy what is, new, crisp, exciting. Cheers

True Lion King Fan - Flat1 star

Acting was very flat. I didn’t feel any emotion from the actors at all. I get they were trying to make it their own and more realistic but it’s talking lions... they didn’t find the right balance of realism and emotion.

I first saw The Lion King in 1994 with my dad, when I was 8 years old. Ever since then, I have seen it at least 100 times. 25 years later now I myself am a father and watched it again with my daughter. Thats the circle of life!

6ryph3n - It’s exactly what I wanted but I’m disappointed3 star

The CGI is fantastic and some of the changes worked. The character emotions are dull though, made worse by Beyoncé and Glover’s boring voice work. The Lion Sleeps Tonight is the only song that’s better than the original, otherwise they’re generally less fun and underwhelming. I love most of the Disney remakes and I’ve waited for this one for years. I wanted it to be accurate to the original but in the end just about the only thing really fun about watching this one was seeing the exact recreations of each shot.

storytellerstudios - Everything I was hoping for5 star

The movie is awesome! "That's all I have to say about that." Just a brief review of the "iTunes Extras". Normally I find the supplemental material to be a bit of a bore, but not this time. The technological breakthroughs in virtual reality are stunning. Join the director, Jon Favreau, as he reveals the way this marvelous film was shot, using VR in a new way. The cast interviews are great, especially "Pumba" (Seth Rogen), who admits that he cant sing a lick, but maybe thats why it works! The old: Sir Elton John's presence is another highlight. The new: Danny Glover offers his intersting take on remaking a classic. You'll even enjoy the two young people who voice and sing for the leads as cubs-they're so very talented! My wife and I just returned from safari on the Masai Mara in Kenya and it added to our enjoyment of the film. Enjoy the Lion King experience in a new way!

Eidolon5 - Average remake.3 star

This movie is a remake. For those who saw the first, it's going to be average or a let down. For those who HAVE NOT SEEN THE ORIGINAL, it'll probably be good. However, the characters animal facial expressions are too characteristic of the animal portrayed per character. As a result, there is no human emotion to each character -- except for the vocal performances which carry some emotion. However, the vocal performances were lacking the emotional toll demonstratd in the original. The music is good. The visual effects are amazing. The movie as a whole however fails to outshine the original. Some stories and effects are better to traditional animation and directing choices. This remake would have performed better across a wider audience if the director had chosen to anthropomophize the animal character's facial expressions.
