The Lion King Story: Based on the animated film in 1994, ‘The Lion King‘ is the story of how the life of a young lion changes after the murder of his father.
The Lion King Review: To say that this live-action film is a computer-animated remake of the 1994 animated classic does not justify its visual impact. Technological advances in computer animation are on full display here, and it is truly staggering to experience. There are moments when you will be surprised that you are watching a wildlife documentary, even if with a big difference. It’s all scripted with a story you’re familiar with, especially if you’ve seen the 1994 version. So, you already know how all this is played, and in fact it is not surprising. In this edition, the realistic depiction of animals seems to be restricted to some extent, because it leaves much less space than the work of the voice.
This is where things get really difficult, despite being a very talented voice. Both Donald Glover and Beyoncé Knowles have the credit of singing, and while Glover adds some charisma to Simba, the drain does not get much to speak. Even so, their relationship is attractive in parts. Chiwetel Ejiofor certainly does more to make Scar Meninging, and perhaps enough to remember him as a formidable villain. The most enjoyable characters voiced by Seth Rogen and Billy Echner are Pumba and Timon. They lighten up the proceedings and bring some very necessary personality with the combination of adorable war and meerkat. The spin-offs of Simba, Pumba and Timon will be well received and certainly far more entertaining. As he did in the original, James Earl Jones played the role of Mufassa once again to bring home a neutral factor.
But this is the only mileage you can get at Nostalgia. Shot the Lion King is a shot-by-shot, track-by-track remake that highlights the challenge with a live-action re-creation attack. Is it better to stick to the source material, or does it make sense for the current audience to change it? John Feverey likes to play it safe here, and although it can leave an impression on new audiences, those who have grown up on the animated classic, can fight to revive their childhood feelings. Nevertheless, seeing this family’s favorite life will trigger astonishing moments for its wonderful achievements, and it automatically warrants a visit to your nearest 3D screen.
