My thoughts about The Lion King remake

Since I have never watched the remake because I don't want to let Disney took my money, when I watch the original animated classic and even the recent Nostalgia Critic review which I realized the biggest flaw that the remake didn't have; The Message.

Since when I was a kid and later which I don't understand about the message where Simba is talking with Rafiki, until I fully realized on the Nostalgia Critic review that you could either run away from the past (meaning the past can hurt) or you could learn from it. It was my favorite message and it's rare for Disney, until when the remake is arrived that the message is sadly been removed.

Disney should stop this garbage.

Most the content disney is doing is just live action remakes of their old movies. It feels like milking and they all end up bad. It is not working anymore, it is as bad as when disney made pointless sequels for their movies. I mean I heard good reviews by people on ABC, but I would rather watch the original. These stupid remakes. Disney probably pays the critics to say good things about their stuff. If I were the head of Disney, I would stop making these remakes and adapt more books to movies. Remaking these films are ridiculous and is probably just done for ca-ching.

And I thought Eisner's regime was greedy.

This represents Bob Iger's regime rather nicely. At least Eisner's regime tried to be original. --Trevor807 (talk) 02:21, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

Eisner's reign did give us Home on the Range, Chicken Little and all those horrible direct-to-DVD sequels, so he's not guilt-free either. But yeah, I think it was probably more John Lasseter who got Disney back on track in the late 2000s, and now that he's gone, they've started to suck again. --Xian Pu (talk) 15:23, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

They ruined Be Prepared

It was literally one of the best songs in the original movie, and they had to butcher it. >:( Eijitheawesome (talk) 19:33, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

Wasted Potenital

I only saw reviews and clips of this movie, and from what I saw, the main flaws of the movie is that the animals non-expressive faces and rehashing. The most ironic thing about all this is the fact Aslan from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe from 2005 showed more emotions than the lion characters in the remake, which was made 14 years before this film's release. However, I think this film would have been good if it has good chances.

If they added a backstory of Scar of how he got his scar, what his original name was, and why he hated Mufasa, then Scar could've been a complex villain, but still as charming as the original. and who

Another thing that could have been changed is that scene where Simba came back to the pride and was accused of committing the death of Mufasa, despite Simba was not the one who did, and how no one really stood by him until Scar reveals he was the one who killed Mufasa, which goes against the message about facing your troubled past. How would I change it is that even being lied by Scar, Sarabi and Nala would of stand by him to defend him, and the rest of the lions would fight against the hyenas. However as Scar and Simba are fighting, Nala and Sarabi are fending off some of the Hyenas, and then Simba would be hanging on the cliff and Scar would taunt him by confessing he indeed killed Mufasa, Which of course, gave Simba determination to get back up on his feet and like the original, forces Scar to confess, to which he did.

One last change I would do is show how Simba would rule The Pride Lands and how he would treat the residents.

Other then Those changes, that's it.

We get it, Disney.

Yes, CGI has massively improved since Toy Story, and now we have the technology to make animation look so realistic it tricks people into thinking they used real animals. But it doesn't work with the Lion King. Photorealistic animation is restricting in a movie like this. You could do so much more with 2D animation than you could here. It doesn't even look right when Simba is dancing in this remake, it looks like he's readying himself for battle. If you really want to show off your advanced animation technology, be original and make a movie from scratch. Don't beat it out of a movie that already exists as a classic.

New Trailer

If you guys think Lion King wasn't that great. check out this trailer I saw before I watched the film. It's ugly af.


/* Darn it, Disney */

Well, at least we can separate the art from the artists. Jon Favreau did his best shot anyway.

The 2016 Jungle Book is way better than this shot-by-shot rehash waste of CGI effort. Shere Khan had a more aggressive and scary expression than that greylag boneflint version of Scar.

For those that say that Disney pays the critics, that's a dumb idea to suspect stuff from the company.

As for Disney, I'm only giving their money on their upcoming animated projects for now. Includes Pixar.

I'm also only giving my money for Marvel because right now, they're on fire with the MCU. And Phase 4 is coming.

Not sure about Star Wars though. Freddie123 (talk) 04:05, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

A Prequel has been confirmed.

What we know so far is that it's a prequel, supposedly on Mufasa.

Ok, but wow, this talk page is a surviving reminder of the talk pages on pages of this wiki before they got a better update HellLord (talk) 16:48, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

And we thought that Disney has to stop with remaking the original films.

Every time that Disney needs to stop with live-action remakes, which it destroyed the original films. I feel like that Disney should make their films based on cartoons (like DuckTales (reboot edition), Gravity Falls, Little Einsteins, ect.) books, and original films. At least Disney has only made three good films, which is Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Christopher Robin.

By the way, the discussion page is only surviving page on this wiki before they got updated, which I wasn't expected to happened anyway. LancedSoul (talk) 07:57, 3 October 2020

There’s also the old Hellboy (2019) discussion page as well HellLord (talk) 08:21, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

Sounds like we got a cast for upcoming movie.

Ok so in August 2021, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Aaron Pierre were cast, with Pierre voicing the role of young Mufasa. I honestly thought no one asked for this.
