    Im not kidding he was paying attention to the sound and colors and sat in full attention everytime Scar talked
    >~> precious lil baby
    I think he'd enjoy this as well if only to swat at the screen x'D
    (I know he doesnt understand whats going on but his reaction each time he watched it was cute )

      Prehistoric beast 102 look at the scene where scar tells simba to run since it’s our best look so far how the characters talk/express themselves compare this stoic emotionless cg garbage to the expressive and emotional way the original portrays simbas face and scars body language plus this voice actor is not fit to play scar like iron was

    Disney remaking all of their movies is sad. They should stick with hand drawn animation and make new films. It is what we all grew up with and the new direction they are taking is losing a lot of their fan base.

    Movie of the year already in my eyes. The musical score. So glad they stuck with the track "King of pride rock". The animation is unlike anything i have ever seen. Its like watching national geographic. And of course its the greatest Disney movie ever. I dread the Mufasa death scene. These young kids have no idea what they are in for lol.

    Is there a very curious on why they didn't keep scar with the black Mane I mean it identifies him one is the bad guy in 2 as a different lion with him having the same color of Maine is all the alliance makes no sense but to give him the black Mane would make more sense cuz he's supposed to be an evil lion

      When I watched original The Lion King first time, I considered it as the funniest movie ever made - I laughed at almost every scene! But then I got to know that it has also some political content and then it stopped being so funny for me. :(

    WOW! Kimba the White Lion CG Edition is looking great! Not sure why Kimba's not white though, or why they're spelling his name with an "S", but aside from only these *two* differences, I'd say it looks pretty accurate to the original 60s anime!
    (DISCLAIMER: All dislikes on my comment are by Disney CEOs)

    • J R

      And if You love foxes, then I highly recommend You to see 'The Fox and The Hound' - it's a Disney's 1981 animated movie and I'm sure You'll enjoy it way more than 'The Lion King'!

    • J R
      J R 6 days ago

      There is no dislike counter of the comments.
      Anyways, I don't care Simba or Kimba - I love lions and I'm not either Disney fan or anime fan. But when I watched Kimba one thing made me furious: Kimba DIDN'T HARM MICE! F***! I hate mice! And Kimba SHOULD HAVE KILLED them even if he's a cub!
      Die all mice in hell!

    Everyone’s saying that we loose a lot of character expression due to the realism of the film, but I disagree! Wild animals such as this express their emotions in body language. In trailers, some of the screen is cut off to avoid giving the audience everything they need to know. In theaters I’m sure the characters will be more expressive through their body language and tone of voice! I for one can’t wait!

    • Whoulf

      J R 6 days ago +1

      You're right, Whoulf! Animals also have body language, but different than humans. Dogs move their tails when they're happy, cats have tails down when they're happy... I have a spieces of fish called Mylandia Estherae (I don't know how it's said in English) which change their colour of body pedending on emotion - darker when they feel bad and lighter when they feel good.
      And don't say 'Everyone'! All I want is just to see cute lions and don't even need any damn expression!
