Disney’s The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau, journeys to the African savanna, where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon. Disney’s The Lion King utilizes pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way.
the lion king (2019) - jon favreau synopsis will be updates..
good message 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 Prepared 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.
Meh 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.
Alright Pretty much shot for shot as the original but was nothing like the original
An absolute disgrace This is an insult to the classic 1994 Lion King. Circle of life is bland and colorless. I just can’t wait to be king sounds 100% auto tuned. Be Prepared is ruined by taking out so much of the song, no singing but a speech, and colorless and emotionless. Can you feel the love tonight is basically just Beyoncé singing and during the day. This version of Mufasa’s death is the entire Circus and just flat out laughable. Also, the only reason Disney hired James Earl Jones back to play Mufasa is because he’s black, not because he’s the only one that can play Mufasa that they so eagerly want you to believe. Because if that was their thinking process, they would’ve hired Jeremy Irons back as Scar, more evidence to support this claim is that every single cast member to play the lions are African American. If Lion King had humans present that would be important, but since the original relies on voices and not race this change was completely pointless and useless. also, Beyoncé is NOT an actress! Imagine what you could’ve spent with $20 other than this.....
i love this song👌🏻

The Lion King is outstanding I do loved this 2019 live action animated classic film to the famous Walt Disney animated masterpiece from 1994 featuring the original songs from the 1994 film featuring two new original songs, Spirit by Beyoncé and Never Too Late by Elton John.

Valuable Great film
Good What you expect
Amazing This in my opinion was better than the original amazing!!
Lion king Great movie
lack luster dont waste your time. sitck with the original animated film.
Just ok 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.
It’s a terrible, soulless cash grab 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.
Not the worst, but not good. 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.
Similar, Different, Better, Worse 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
Trash 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

Best movie 2019 I loved the movie it was amazing
What a crap movie 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

Big fan of the original ,wouldn’t even waste my time seeing this one .heard bits of the soundtrack .voices don’t match up to the original ,bad move Disney
Fabulous to see Disney bring it to life the CGI is great ! So funny ,great family film.
This is great family movie. The remake of the original movie is so good and the special effects is fantastic. I recommend it for everyone.
I am a huge fan of the original and have to say this one had me so engaged, had me laughing and had me crying all the way through. It’s so realistic and I couldn’t have thought of better voice actors other than the originals for the characters. 100% recommend!
Simba is inspired by his father to be king great funny scary story about Simba getting to the top of the ladder
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.
this movie is so good! i just cant stop watching it!
The new Aladdin at least keeps the colour and magic the classic had.
I loved it, but Scar looked like a dog raised by flowers!
