The Lion King

MV5BMjIwMjE1Nzc4NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDg4OTA1NzM@. V1 UY1200 CR9006301200 AL  The Lion King

Directed by Jon Favreau. With Donald Glover, Beyoncé, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor. After the murder of his father, a young lion prince flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery.

A stunning visual treat that no one asked for and no one needed. There’s a ton of big names here, some of them with the most annoyingly distracting voices that it pulled me out of the immersion completely, like Seth Rogan as the warthog and John Oliver as the bird. I like some of the minor changes they made, like Scar not really being in control of the horde of hyenas, or the slight change of what “Hakuna Matata” really means.

I mean, both changes make the story more depressing and sad, but it was already a story about the death of a parent and the dark places that takes us.

Buy On Amazon!

The Lion King originally appeared on Adam Selvidge’s Website on July 22, 2019.
