Disney Fans, Rejoice!
One word pretty much describes it all: EPIC!
Jon Favreau deserves some serious acknowledgement for this piece of work. He effortlessly manipulated time and took us down that memory lane; filling our hearts with warmth and compassion.
What I admired most was how faithful it remained to the original one. Every sound.. every breath.. every movement! Talk about authenticity.
CGI was on another level! The details were so vivid that you'd start questioning yourself if it is real or animated!!!! This alone dug up our childhood memories and ultimately enhanced them. Cast was very well chosen especially Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon & Pumba. But I honestly couldn't connect well with Beyonce as Nala.
Soundtracks and sound effects amplified our whole experience till it came down rushing through every vein. Script was slightly yet smoothly adjusted.
There were a few slips here and there particularly those related to weak emotional depiction.
Nonetheless, I assure you that "The Lion King" will globally break the Box Office Record as soon as it hits theatres.
Get off your tiny tushies and reserve some spots now!
