The Lion King - (2019)

Recommended Posts

They just showed a teaser for this during the football game. Favreau did well with The Jungle Book from a couple years ago. 

Nostalgia is big now so this will destroy the box office.

Yeah I'd say they are pretty much guaranteed to shatter the single year box office record for a company next year.

Great cast overall, think I'm taking the kids to see this one.

Am I the only one who gets seriously angry that they call this a live action remake when it is clearly going to be 90% not live action?  Do they know what live action means?  Am I the only one really annoyed by that?

I liked the original, got to think it should do well in 2019 too. 25 yrs. since the first "Lion King" as well.

I totally agree with the sentiment but FWIW, the trailer didn't use the phrase 'live action' and you're the first to use it in this thread. I think the real problem comes from not having an industry agreed upon name for this style of animation. It is a CGI movie but it's understandable that they wouldn't want to call it that because CGI is something that tends to, unfairly, carry a negative connotation. I think the phrase 'live action animation' would work and conveys the idea properly, even if it is an oxymoron.

This looks really good and I'm really excited for it but probably less so than I am for Dumbo and Aladdin. I'll definitely go see all three in theaters.

Its the same style as Jungle Book, but that worked as "live action" because there was a human actor. So if Jungle Book was live action, is this not simply because there is a human character?

It's not live action though.  The Jungle Book wasn't really live action, either.  If 90% of a movie is composed of CGI shots, it's not live action.  I don't care if there's a human in it or not.

Disagree but to each his own. I prefer the original cast.

People who cry about the "live action" nomenclature are the worst. People literally changing Wikipedia and adding whole subsections and crap.

All I know is that The Jungle Book was absolutely amazing and so I expect this to be so.
