Disney just released the first trailer for the new Lion King remake and let’s get a few things straight. It’s not live action. Unless they actually went to Africa and have some scenes of actual wildlife then the film isn’t live action it’s CGI; which is another form of animation. Also, so far I’m not impressed with this film at all. I hope Disney proves me wrong on this when they release more trailers for this film but so far thumbs down.
First of all, they’re not even going to have the song “Be Prepared” in the film which is, in my opinion, beyond ridiculous. That’s one of the best Disney villain songs ever written. Honestly, there isn’t an official list but, the top two Disney villain songs would be “Be Prepared” and “Hellfire” from Hunch Back of Notre-Dame. I am however looking forward to the new voice actors for the film. Furthermore, I think the only films left that should have live-action remakes are Black Cauldron, Sword in the Stone, and Hunch Back of Notre-Dame but that’s about it for me.
