The Lion King

The Lion King ★★

it is fun but it loses so much of its original spirit. i know they wanted it to look realistic but a lot of the lines fall flat and don’t match the tone of the scenes at all. beyonce is great, not sure about donald glover but i don’t think i can blame him too much. timon and pumba remain the best characters, they’re *the* best part of the movie. if i hadn’t seen the original this probably wouldn’t have affected me at all soooo yeah
