User Reviews: …It was wildly disappointing. As a kid who grew up in the 90s, Lion King is my most watched movie of all time, if not top 3. I can quote the entire movie line by line. Because of this, I knew exactly which lines were the same, which were changed, how they were delivered differently, and what they took out. It was painful to watch to say the least. Honestly, almost cringeworthy. MANY of my favorite lines and most quoted lines were not even in the remake. However, almost the whole movie was line for line the same. And the delivery of some of the lines that did remain, were just not done as well. Voice acting was weak in comparison. If you are going to basically do a line for line remake, why take away some of the best ones?! The Hyenas were completely nerfed and changed even though they were some of the funniest characters in the original. So literally all of their hilarious scenes from the OG were gone. ‘Be Prepared’ was butchered. Rafiki/Simba scene when he rediscovered himself was one of the lamest things ever in comparison and Rafiki was made to be lifeless cgi baboon instead of a crazy monkey full of character and jokes. Honestly there’s too many to name – SO MANY MISSING LINES/JOKES. I have liked all the other live action remakes a lot, but this one missed the mark for me completely. Maybe it was too close to the heart to appreciate… all of my friends seemed to really like it. But if you were a lion king die hard like myself, you will hate this movie. Solid 3/10 only because it looked impressive. Honestly anyone who liked it, just didn’t remember the original well enough. Because if you did it was a tragedy and a disservice. Never watching it again and not showing my future kids this version either. Booooooooo
