I’ve ALWAYS absolutely adored Lion King ever since I was a little girl, for a long long time (possibly up to a few years ago) it was my all time favourite film EVER! 🥰
So when I heard they were making a live action remake, let’s just say I didn’t hold any high hopes. I purposefully tried my best to avoid trailers and reviews etc and went to see it today as part of Spud’s birthday weekend treat.. Here are my thoughts in a nutshell.
1️⃣I will forever ALWAYS prefer the original to the remake, any day.
2️⃣Timon and Pumba’s voices and their lines were spot on and were probably the best part for Me.
3️⃣The impromptu surprise addition of the first line from another Disney song (also a favourite of mine and a remake/live action I did enjoy!)🎶😂 was fantastic and a very lovely and welcome addition!
In conclusion I was anticipating a good solid 4/10 ⭐️ and in my honest opinion, that’s all it lived up to for Me.😕 Meh.🤷♀️
