The Lion King

The original “Lion King” was Disney’s highest grossing animated film. The stage play is nothing short of brilliant. The new version of “The Lion King” is the latest “live action’ remake of one of Disney’s animated classics. This time they used computer animation to tell the story. The animals looked real. The story is the same, with a couple of updates. It’s a whole new set of voices except for James Earl Jones, who is back as Musafah. A couple of the songs, like “Be Prepared”, are underplayed. And I missed Jeremy Irons as Scar. If you’re a fan of the original, you should like this version. Is it ground breaking? No, but it’s still a good story with fun characters. Entertaining and kids should love it.
