Disney and Jon Favreau Joining Forces on “The Lion King”

I’m watching this regardless. The trailer captures what we know about the original brilliantly. I’ve always found the casting choices questionable. Scar sounded soft in this trailer. I worry over Beyonce the most, regardless, I’m seeing this movie opening weekend. The Lion King is my all time favorite.

A lot of people who are making negative comments will still watch the movie lol.

As long as Beyoncé kept her naturally deep voice, I think I’ll Be satisfied. We’ll see.

The only thing I’m not concerned about is music.

Honestly I doubt I will (maybe on the cruise for free). Like I said before, never really big into the first one, and this just did nothing for me.

I didn’t say/mean watch it in theaters, I said watch it, as in watch it in general. Many naysayers will make it a point to give their personal time to watch the movie, whether they pay for it in theaters or watch it for free on a plane or at home. Or a cruise, like you said.

They might. I honestly doubt I will. Much harder for me to get dragged into a movie i have no desire to see (hi beauty and the beast live action) since someone needs to watch the infant now. Again, just me. You are probably right most will, but I'm just not interested based on that trailer.

I love the original film, and the Broadway show too.

This... this is something that just isn’t reach out to me as a ‘Must see!!’ I know a lot of people are excited for it, but like others have mentioned, turning it into a photorealistic animated film appears to have denied the characters to show a wide range of emotions.

Well, that Pumbaa poster is terrifying.
Yeah, the character designers could have tweaked Pumbaa a little, made him a little cuter, and still have him look like a warthog. I also found Simba the cub less than cute for some reason.

And AGAIN, why couldn't Scar have a black mane like in the animated version? There ARE black-maned lions in reality. This version of Scar makes him look like he has the mange. Animated Scar looked sleek and menacing. This Scar looks underfed and elderly. And pitiful. :p

Is it just me or does anyone else sort of see the actors faces in there? The ones that stand out to me are Nala and Pumbaa.
