    I thought this was beautifully done - the animals are amazing and there was just the right amount of music and humor. There were a couple of places that would be scary for young children. I felt that it followed the plot of the play and the Disney animated version, both of which I have seen. I loved it!

    It was made pretty badly. Animals are too life like. Which actually makes them very unexpressive. Disney should have thought about that. Some really bad voice acting. Particularly young simba. And scenes don't take the time to let the emotion actually happen, they just sort of rush through them. It was pretty bad.

    My daughter and I went to see this movie. We used to watch the animated movie a lot when she was little, she is 21 now. We both thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Beautiful and Amazing movie! Stop comparing to original! It would be a waste of money if it was exactly 100% to original. Be open minded! It is just another way of telling this amazing story. So many underlining messages about life if you pay attention.. Soundtrack music is awesome as well.

    Not for young children as it is scary. Seth Rogen does a terrific job. Beyounce needs to stick to singing. Her speaking voice is annoying.

    Loved the digitalized version-very real- almost 3 D like. The original animated Verizon was cute & funny-great for young kids. The new version might be a bit scary for young children (under 8-9 years). The new version was very life like. Great movie-better on theater screen then DVD at home

    Don't waste you money on a copy cat attempted movie remake with attempts to make realistic animals speak. Not only was this a bad idea but it looked so stupid especially when the lips moving did not match the voiced sound. The movie would have been much better if it was animated like the original and started where the original left off. But it's too late for that now as this movie has ruined the chance of that ever happening.
