Disney's The Lion King, journeys to the African savanna, where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother-and former heir to the throne-has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. Disney's The Lion King utilizes pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way.
I have always loved the original but when they made the new one I had to see it. The visual effects are astonishing and the music it as great as is was in the 1994 version. I will say that Be Prepared was not as good as the original. But, I would give this movie a 5 out of 5 stars.
The original animated version from 1994 is still the best version. The choice in voice actors in this version could have been better and the characters had absolutely no emotion what so ever. As far as Disney live-action movies go it is one of the better ones. It did follow the same storyline and the songs were pretty much all the same. With the exception of Be Prepared.
