After Aladdin, Disney has planned another live-action remake. Now Disney is all set to release their next live-action a remake of their iconic animated movie The Lion King. This remake saw it’s world premiere on Tuesday but the vivacious and genre films fans have to wait till 19 July. And we can say that the critics are very busy in their work.
Jon Favreau has certified this movie another blockbuster from Disney. He said it is a visually stunning venture, supplemented with a thumping background score and spot-on voice acting by Beyonce. The voice of our lead role Simba was just impressive that voice was given by Nala, Donald Glover, they both have done a great a job and the co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa), Keegan-Michael Key (Kamari), Alfre Woodard (Sarabi) and Billy Eichner (Timon) has done their job correctly.
Erik Davis has described the Lion King as an “a game-changer for visual effects.” And we think he fell short of worlds will praising the movie. Praising the film, Davis wrote that “#TheLionKing is visually immaculate & a game-changer for visual effects. It’s stunning in every way. The music shines (Glover & Beyoncé take it to another level), the performances are great (Timon, Pumbaa & Scar steal many scenes) & the emotions run HIGH. Great (sic).”
Another watcher Beatrice Verhoeven wrote, “Oh man #TheLionKing delivers. It’s a visual masterpiece that will leave you smiling and crying the whole time. It’s a true testament to the lasting effect Disney movies have on all generations. Timon and Pumbaa steal the show. And BEYONCE!!! #LionKing (sic).”
Right now the Lion King is standing with the 57% point on the Rotten Tomatoes and other websites Metacritic have reviewed it as “mixed and average” and given it 55% score.
Many film reporter has joined the world premiere on Tuesday, one of them was BuzzFeed News’ Adam B. Vary, a senior film reporter. In the review of the movie, he said that I was lucky enough to see the film at a packed press screening Wednesday night and can tell you that my colleague is right. The animals’ photorealistic faces lose a lot of the emotion that came in the original. Some of the scenes just weren’t as powerful as they were in the 1994 film, including the death of Mufasa, which felt stunted. The stoic expression on the senior lion’s face as he plunged to his death didn’t have the sad or traumatic effect director Jon Favreau may have been going for. Instead, I just felt indifferent.
