Why The Lion King is One of the Most Awaited Movies This Season Despite Criticism

The Lion King trailer was viewed by 225 million individuals in its initial 24 hours in November, breaking Disney's record with an elegant voice cast and evaluated $250 million spending plan

Disney's blockbuster 3D remakes of animated works of art have always been awaited by movie buffs but the studio is betting on its most recent The Lion King to go even further up. With an elegant voice cast including Beyonce and evaluated $250 million spending plan, Hollywood's ruling hitmaker has spared no expense to bring, arguably its most beloved source material roaring to photo-realistic life. The excitement is high for this about youthful lion cub Simba avenging his dad's death and expectations are rife that this might copy the successful The Jungle Book (2016), Beauty and the Beast (2017) and Aladdin (2019).

A trailer for the new The Lion King was viewed by 225 million in its initial 24 hours in November, breaking Disney's own record. With not a single human character to be found, pretty much every shot, from the pixel-ideal hairs of Mufasa's sparkling mane to the frightfully realistic hyena eyes penetrating through the Elephant Graveyard gloom was conjured from scratch using computer-generated imagery. But then The Lion King isn't strictly a 3D activity either, in any customary sense.

Movie producers and actors at the studio had the option to wear computerised headsets and "venture into" a computer game style African savannah to film or basically watch rough computer-generated versions of Simba and his pals cavorting through the Pride Lands.

The 1994 Lion King is considered the pinnacle of Disney's 1990s "renaissance," bringing forth a hugely successful Broadway melodic rendition. Can the new version be as big a hit? Let’s wait and watch.
