    It’s not live action it’s animated the only way it can be live action if they have a real person

    Wow, I'm more shocked Jame Earl Jones wasn't first billed than I am by Scar's appearance.

    Too bad that some voices are not returning from the original movie. I loved the original movie and have high expectations for this remake, but it's a shame that people like Jeremy Irons (Scar), Whoopi Goldberg (Shenzi) and Rowan Atkinson (Zazu) are not returning for this movie. Among Timon&Pumbaa who are also done by other actors...Thank God we still have James Earl Jones as Mufasa.

    Will "Can you feel the love tonight" be in there?

  • David Rogers

    The comic elements of Pumbaa and Timon was achieved through exaggerated expressiveness that only cartoon animation can do. I am skeptical whether a realistic looking warthog and meerkat can be as funny.

    Look incredibly well made visually. Too bad Disney doesnt bother to come up with a new story. I wont go see this one because I already know the story. Disney is like: that stupid audience is gonna give their money gratefully to us cause we give them something that moves on screen... Even the shots are the same as in the original movie... Again: it looks awesome, but can we please get SOMETHING new and original?

    Damn! No Nathan Lane? He's just as iconic as Timon as James Earl Jones is as Mufasa. What a shame.

    Someone please edit Jeremy Irons over that horrible Scar.

  • Jor Jor Singh

    Just so you know, in nature, a black mane for lions means they are excellent fighters and are usually the leader of their pride. The pigment on the hair of a male lion’s mane darkens with time. However, if they typically lose fights, they lose hair, from stress usually. This is why scar’s hair would be pale and barely there. You can be disappointed but Disney just took a ‘nat geo wild’ approach with this whole remake ordeal. Love it, hate it,... but biologically proud 🤗

      The only thing I hate about this movie is that it comes out July 19, 2019, but it'll be worth the wait

  • Lightly Salted

    I'll be looking forward to seeing whether Nala will do the "do me" look in the romance scene. Though it coming from a realistic looking lioness wouldn't quite have the same effect...

    This is My Favorite Disney Film, of All time. They should have Kept 'All' of The Cast from the others. And its Coming out, On My Birthday!!

    Scar needed to be Jeremy Irons. How can we have James Earl Jones back but not Jeremy Irons?

    • creativevision

      @sea green Maybe he can pull off scary but I didn't see that in this trailer

    • sea green

      Chiwetel Ejiofor can pull off scary. Jeremy Iron is cool but not scary.

    Are the songs still in this? If not, then it's basically been converted entirely into Lion Hamlet. I'm not okay with that.

    • Superpiair1
      Superpiair1 4 months ago +2

      Its way more authentic. Does a real life villain ever talk the way you want them to talk in this movie? Now thats the scary thing: they often sound friendly... but are way more dangerous.

  • Panda

    I don't understand why Disney feels the need to remake every movie live action. The original Lion King isn't even that old. The colors are bright and vibrant. It's beautiful. The realistic look they are going for here really throws me off and makes me uncomfortable.

    • T Rod
      T Rod 4 months ago +2

      Panda to keep up with the times. Remakes aren’t made to replace they’re made to interest newer generations. While some kids and teens still enjoy cartoons many enjoy live action

    I'm not a fan of the live action remakes that Disney is doing, but this... this looks good.

      Did you notice how there was no sign of Hakuna Matata when they were walking across the log? In the original, they were dancing across it.

  • lordshardik
    lordshardik 4 months ago +3

    I wonder if this will end up being like Watership Down, where it's really great, but you can't tell the difference between characters, and the people who don't already know the story are never sure who's who.

    The Lion King is the one movie where I have every line memorized from beginning to end (I have since I was 5), so it was interesting to watch this trailer and notice subtle differences in the lines, along with totally new ones.

    MTWENTY 4 months ago +3

    Alright, after seeing this trailer I am no longer convinced of this’s taking almost everything great about the original and just making it super bland and lifeless.
    What I loved most about the Lion King was not only the music, but the vibrant exaggerated colors. This just looks like a safari ride. Pass

      MTWENTY 4 months ago

      @pennylessz yup. we might as well just watch zoo animals walk across a log

    • pennylessz
      pennylessz 4 months ago

      Did you notice the lack of Hakuna Matata when they walked across the log? They weren't even dancing!

    Disney: they look like real animals, right? So there's no need to add expressions to them.

    Run away, Simba, and never return.

    He says that like he's talking to his friend in a primary school playground playing cops and robbers. This Scar actor has nothing on Jeremy Irons.

      Uranus no he did not it’s not even him rejecting the part it’s him not being available at the time

      @Riv Isiah He did want to take the part. He's said it numerous times and I've actually spoken to him myself. Skin color > talent.
