    When I first saw the commercials for this movie I was thinking this movie is not gonna be very good but once I heard who was all in it I was thinking it might be better than I thought, finally got around to seeing it tonight and it was amazing! I loved it more than the original to be honest and there was so much comedy added to the film which made many people crack up in the theater, 5 out of 5 from me no doubt, will be a must own for us when it releases on 4K!

    The original animated Lion King was great! The attempted realistic animals in this movie who's mouths did not match the voices was like a movie made over a hundred years ago.

    My daughter and I never saw the first version of The Lion King. We loved this movie. The cinematography and the animation was amazing. We would see this movie again.

    Shameful endorsement of lethal patriarchal and cisgender norms. The people who identify as women who like this should be particularly ashamed. Disney is run by men. There is blood on all of our hands!!!

    Trying to copy the original was a big mistake. Should have been made starting at end of original movie and should have been animated like the original.

    Loved It! The live action was cute! Almost pretty close to the original cartoon version! And the simba and nala as lion cubs were so adorable! Im going to watch it again when it comes to my town!! Its always good to get a second glance at the movie you like! Love disney! And this was by far an Awesome remake! But just Like aladdin ,scar was not as evil as the scar in the cartoon,so that made it sad! They should have picked a more evil charachter,voice and looks and all! The guys voice did not have it! Jeremy irons was the best for that part in the cartoon! :) and the “ be prepared” song was way to short and changed alot of lyrics! Haha but thats all that made it sad to watch! But other then that Great Job disney!! I will be seeing this soon!! Loved it!!!!!! Shame on any haters against the disney movies! They are trying ! And not trying to impress just you! Great movie! Hoping to see tangled or tarzan as a musical remake!! ????
