It looks like "Be Prepared" made it in to the movie after all. It's on Youtube if anyone wants to listen.


Aladdin has never been one of my favorite Disney movies but I did enjoy the remake.
 
I'm not sure about the new Lion King remake.

I hate the "cartoons are for kids; live-action is for adults" stance so I'm living for all the negative talk for The Lion King. This was extremely unnecessary. The animals, from what I've seen from trailers, just look like real animals moving their mouths like a puppet, not even making look like they're *talking*. The colours are ugly. TLK was so vibrant and now it's just sand colours. And the concept of "Lion King with real animals" is flawed because the lions are so anthropomorphized. They sing and dance and even use their paws as hands. You can't do that with a real lion.

Unfortunately it won't mean a thing. People can call it worse than Food Fight or The Emoji Movie and it won't matter. It's going to do crazy. Disney is going to make so much money off this thing.

What grinds my gears is how this is still marketed as a "live action" somehow. It's just another cartoon, just photorealistic. Like the Na'Vi in Avatar, just without mocap.
Was that Disney marketing or was it people assuming they used real sets or real animals? It bothers me one way or the other.

Now Disney's Lady and the Tramp remake? That's live action. Real dogs with some CG enhanced talking mouths. I shamefully want to see that one, too, but it's gonna be on the new Disneyflix and like I said, I am not paying for these remakes. But I need to see two real dogs sensually eat one long spaghetto, ok? :lol:

That pretty much sums up the movie and how I feel about it.
TLK is very dear to me and I'm just... egh :P Not impressed.

Wanna know what I find hilarious? Thus far, ALL of the 2019 movie apparel I've seen has been for kids, and all of the adult clothing has featured their animated counterparts :P


Although this movie is the perfect example of why people shouldn't listen to early rumours. Hello, Be Prepared! Although I've heard it's really bad, and probably should have been cut anyway...

I saw it. By tooooootally legal means  ;)

You can group me in with those who liked it but yes, it is exactly like in the trailers. And I agree with the critics.

Yes, Be Prepared is in it and it's only one minute. But that part was perfect for the scene it was in. You can hate it or love it but it fit the tone.

My main takeaway from the remake is that Shenzi is queen of my heart.
I would have loved to see less shot-for-shot stuff and a more interesting story. You miss nothing by not watching it. But watching it won't ruin your childhood or anything.

Reading through all the posts, I'm still not sure if I want to see it or not.

I took a decision not to go see Aladdin because it was my favourite Disney film as a kid (and I will watch it probably when it comes on TV but I didn't want to spend money on something I will probably rant about xD)

I was never much for the original LK, I preferred the sequel, so I don't have such a connection to this one - but all the things being said about the expressions and it being hard to tell characters apart make me kind of lukewarm about it...

Aladdin is my favorite Disney movie and I thought the remake was fine. I also saw the musical and there is a great evolution of Jasmine's character motivations.
Movie: she wants to marry for love, not political reasons.
Musical: she wants to marry for love and have equal power to her husband as sultana.
Remake: she wants to become sultana on her own without having to marry at all, she is into politics because her mother was murdered after a coup. Since she wants to be sultana anyways she only wants to marry for love. She wants to prove she can rule (her new song is all about that)

The Lionking remake is beat for beat like the original with some minor character updates on the hyenas and Sarabi.

I don't get where the heck Amy Sedaris was. They announced her character like it was big news but she only had one line  :rolleyes:

I saw it yesterday, and I personally enjoyed it. There were some things that were changed that I really didn't care for, but some things were changed that I loved.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I personally recommend it, just don't go into it expecting parts to be as funny or as charming as the original. Any humor (save for T&P) has been pretty much erased, and the plot is way more serious. The CGI, however, is incredible.

If they do decide to do a sequel (Who am I kidding, there'll be a sequel) then I feel like Jon Favreau would do a much better job at that one, provided they go down the same route as Simba's Pride again.

I saw it yesterday.  Aladdin, The Lion King and Lilo and Stitch are my top 3 favorite Disney movies. I loved the live action Aladdin! But The Lion King fell a little flat for me. It just wasn't as charming or endearing as the original.

More details about my thoughts and feelings. Lots of spoilers!!!!!!

I was thinking of the CGI Lion King the other day as I watched the CGI Watership Down remake on Netflix.  Watership Down's CGI is nowhere as advanced as TLK, in fact it was pretty bad.  But one thing they both share is:  they're stories that are not helped at all by "realistic" CGI.  (Realistic in the sense that they used naturalistic colors for the animals and didn't have a lot of exaggerated stretch and squash / exaggerated character designs.)

In the case of Watership Down it was an absolute struggle to tell which character was which when they weren't talking.  Except Fiver because he was physically smaller.  In TLK's case, I feel like . . . it's like when you take a picture of the most gorgeous sunrise, but the photo doesn't capture it at all.
