The Lion King (2019)

If I had to sum the live-action release of The Lion King, I would just say “meh.” If it weren’t for the exceptional and breathtaking cinematography, this movie would have bombed. The Lion King is one the crown jewels of Disney animation, and unfortunately, Jon Favreau did nothing to separate his film from that one. People will laugh because the characters have a bunch of new dialogue, but their versions of classic songs were brutal. When Chiwetel Ejiofor botched Be Prepared (my favourite song) I knew I was in for a rough ride. Besides a Beauty and Beast reference, this movie is a scene for scene the same exact film. 5/10
