Yes, I know that this isn’t a live-action film at all (barring like one shot in the beginning of the film), but Disney is treating this like their live-action remakes and I know many of you would like to see how I rank it compared to the other live-action remakes. Hence, I am reviewing it on this blog!
When Disney hit gold with their 2016 live-action remake of The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Favreau, it only made sense for them to try to do it again with another animal-themed film. What better one than the film considered by many to be their magnum opus, The Lion King?
Before I dive into the review, I’d like to point out that it’s nigh impossible to watch this film without comparing it to the original! As the story is literally the same overall, I’ll try to point out the changes that were made in this remake. With that in mind, be prepared!
And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
