    Hey Disney fans, how excited are you for the 2019 remake of “The Lion King”? The “not quite” live-action remake of the 1994 animated feature follows the plot faithfully, but there are some subtle differences if you know where to look. Zoom in on the details as Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa get the photorealism treatment and find out which documentary presenter inspired director Jon Favreau’s vision for the remake.

    With a starry voice cast that includes Beyoncé as Nala, this is very much a current version, but there are also some nods to the past - discover how James Earl Jones connects both of the movies, plus what exciting new addition Elton John is bringing to the 2019 version. And you’ll want to hear all about the major changes to the hyenas. If you love Disney movie remakes as much as us, subscribe to TheThings for more great videos like this one. Thanks for watching!

          Which one of Simba's voice actors was the most funniest? Matthew Broderick from the original or Donald Glover from the remake?

                Haven't seen the movie yet But based off of this video it seems that it will hold up to the original better then previous Disney movie remakes and oh my God I don't wanna get started with the shity little mermaid movie that come out soon... I'm almost tempted to get that movie make a video of Me torching it on fire and then sending that video to Disney whoever came up with The changes for the Little mermaid Should go kill themselves

                                    I know why they made the three main hyenas female, or at least i can theorize: Female hyenas are the bigger of the genders and usually are the higher ranking, doing most hunts and being the dominant leaders of the clans. Compared to male hyenas who are at the very bottom ranking, who start mediocre and go lower as they grow,(Females start mediocre and go higher as they grow.) Personally, I like this realistic touch to make the hyenas more similar to the real wild hyenas.

                                          Scar’s body shape is good but maaaan his colors like way too bright I kinda wish that they made his fur a little gingerbready

                                            A darker fuller mane shows dominance, that's why scar wasn't king. If you ask me, the live action is better for realistic concepts than the cartoon

                                                    They didn't really have to change scar that much. Like, Lions in real life could have dark manes, so they could at least give him a dark mane :,)

                                                            This needs to stop, replacing 2d animation with CGI without doing anything else at all doesn’t make a good movie. But Disney doesn’t care, it’ll rake in the cash from people who think they’re going to get a little nostalgia or a little bit of joy from watching a movie. You won’t, there are a reason Disney’s old animated movies were classics. Because they were good, voiced by amazing people, and the animation was great. Photo realism won’t bring the same emotion to the characters and The Lion King 2019 proves that. Animals weren’t designed to be able to convey emotion like an animated character is. If you go and spend your money on this you are reenforcing an idea that Disney can just repaint something and make millions off of it. We should be voting with our wallets and showing that we want the same classic feeling for new movies, that we want Disney to go back to actually trying with their stuff. Currently they don’t do any trying at all because they already own half of everything.

Could someone not send her to classes to alter it. They might as well have just renamed Nala and called her Beyonce. It freakin annoyed me. Aaargh! All the other characters were on point but she ruined Nala. She shouldve just stuck to singing on the soundtrack.

And so he is more masculine and is normally more aggressive. Scar would probably loose the battle with Mufasa that’s why he’s the leader otherwise Scar would be the “king”.

The fact that it uses CGI? That’s not really a strength as it’s apparent that the characters life and expression are all gone in this remake, Scar no longer really looks threatening in any unique way, he just looks like an emotionless Lion, even in parts where he shouldn’t be.
