Lion King 2019 seems like a pretty soulless remake of the 1993 version...
Boringer than the unedited footage of a nature documentary.

Yeah, I knew from the jump that this movie was going to crash and burn by critic standards It's still going to make millions, though. It's literally a shot by shot remake. I'd be willing to watch it if I knew it had took the risk of having a personality of its own. No amount of A-list celebrities will do anything to save it from being good, and the original should have been left untouched.

The guy in this review brings up a good point. A lot of things don't translate very well when you have a photorealistic movie like this. In the original movie, the characters showed emotion and facial expressions whenever they spoke. It's impossible to not make photorealistic animals look uncanny when they speak.


It looks so fucking lifeless, and I personally hate whenever filmmakers try to have animals move their jaws to speak.

I really don't care for Disney's "live action" remakes of their animated films since it's just a cash grab without having to develop new and original properties or at least repurpose a fairy tale. One time friend took me to go see Beauty and the Beast with her, which I wasn't that interested in but she loved the animated film. Ironically I ended up liking it although she ended up hating it. Given the reaction The Little Mermaid has gotten, I'd like to see what happens when they try to remake Pocahontas.

Mulan looks okay although they're eschewing the musical numbers and supposedly turning Mushu into a phoenix but of course it's just Disney pandering towards the Chinese market since they know China only allows a certain number of foreign films a year and most of their international box office would come from there.

Honestly, I thought this version was interesting. I just don't understand why the song ended before it even began.

Not sure why people singing would set you off like that as a kid. Did your dad molest you while yelling at you to stop acting like such a faggot or something? Just seems really bizarre to not like Disney movies as a kid when, you know, you're a kid and not a jaded adult that would view children's musicals as being gay.

It's not like you're posting on /a/ conversing with pedophiles manchildren. You're in a thread of people talking about how fucking dumb this new CGI remake looks.

im so fucking tired of disney remakes. they have all this money, power, and resources, and they REFUSE to continue making traditionally animated cartoon movies. You know, the things that made them what they are. Anyone can pump out CGI. Anyone can rehash old material. But NO ONE is doing traditional animation and it's kinda the only thing I want. It takes time, effort, resources, staff, everything Disney is more than capable of providing or procuring. There's a shitload of other cultures they can poach fairy tales and myths from. But they just fucking don't, and clearly refuse to with their current drive to just shit on all their old products.

Well, they had closed all their 2D animation studios about 10 years ago and many people had lost their jobs.
The majority of old Disney animators are now teaching 2D animation on thier youtube channels.

CGI animated movies are less time/cost efficient than 2D animated films to produce, and they make more money in the box office.


Take a movie like Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse for instance: It literally took that movie four years to make. If you have any idea how fucking hard animators work, you'll know right away that this movie has blood, sweat and tears written all over it.


The Lion King remake looks like utter shit with none of the heart that the original had, but normies will eat this shit up anyway. It doesn't matter to Disney whether the movies they put out are good or not.

Why are big companies so scared of making classic cartoons? Everything has to be 3D animated and most humans in those movie look really creepy in an uncanny way. You'd expect to be able to create good stuff in flash without having to hire a North Korean drawing company.

With cgi they can turn out endless pointless sequels made to market new characters for merchandise by just reusing assets saved from the last movie and you can release it in theaters. With hand drawn animation you have to hire a cut-rate team of korean animators, cut cell counts for every scene down to Hannah-Barbera level and send it direct to video.

After looking again at some previews of this, I think one of the biggest reasons why everyoen says it looks lifeless is the colors look like they went in the direction of like every PS3 generation shooter. I'm not saying they should've gone technicolor dreamjacket but realistic doesn't always equate to drab colors.

Mulan (2020) is going to be based on the more badass original source material, not the cheesy Americanized version. So, there won't be a talking reptile that has a black man's voice. So far it's the only remake I'm actually cool with. The source material will allow it to be something different and not a carbon copy of something we've already seen.

Also, Disney has always fucking sucked and only girls and the sissy boys watched that shit coming up. It is no wonder their movies are fucking god awful. I have always said and always will:

If you didn't enjoy the original lion king, or jungle book, or at least a few other good old Disney movies you can't really appreciate movies. You have to understand the history.

I agree though that all movies now are shit and not worth watching. I only go to the old theatre in my city to watch classic movies (just saw tombstone, was awesome).

Remakes and cash grabs from old IPs are the whole scene now. None of them are good. The better ones are just not as bad.

Boomerang launched in 1992 fam. I remember it being a thing in the mid 90's or so because these rich black kids I knew watched it all the time and it had a lot of old cartoons on it but it was on the cable channels or whatever. All we had were the typical antenna VHF-UHF channels.

If you were a kid in the mid 90's that means you're around 30 now. I remember the lion kind coming out vaguely as a kid but never watched it until years later on vhs tape from the library.

Because people have been trained to respond to brands and reject new things out of laziness. Attention spans are low, so something familiar and predictable is accessible. Something that makes people think or feel they're experiencing something new takes effort and feels risky, and people are cowards.
