A second look at Disney's live-action/CGI version of The Lion King was released today. This preview gives us a good look at Scar and Simba. The film appears to be almost a shot-for-shot remake of the 1994 animated classic. Which is a dramatic retelling of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Our newest iteration of The Lion King looks breathtaking even if it is just computer animation.
All of these Disney remakes are CGI even though they're billed as "live action remakes". I don't know why THIS is the one people are noticing. There never really was a Beast on set when they were making 'Beauty and the Beast'. I hate to break that to everyone. 'The Jungle Book' remake did not feature a real live talking panther. Just want to clarify that for those who might be confused. Don't be so cynical. Grab some popcorn and enjoy the pretty colors on the big screen! Everything is going to be OK.
The Lion King hits theaters July 19th.
