    Meh, I already find the original version to be perfection .I doubt that CGI Simba will prove to be a significant improvement .

    I'm leaning towards passing on this .

    The original's a classic, but there's room for improvement.

    Not saying this necessarily will be, but it could be.

    Isn't it against the rules for mods to unnecessarily change thread titles? Cuz if so, it seems to be something that happens a lot here. Eh, whatever.

    I regularly edit titles around here for the sake of consistency; I'm a stickler for aesthetics

    if it offends you for some reason, I can begrudgingly revert it :wot

    What was the original title? I agree with Stunna though, some people make some sloppy headings here.

    The new Transformers could be critically acclaimed :LOS

    I don't know, this is too personal for me, I don't think I'd be able to judge this in an objective light . How was the new Jungle Book?

    JB was okay. Felt they played it too safe/subdued at times with the music. Like they were embarassed to do so.

    Okay, now this is getting a bit ridiculous. I could understand doing a live-action JB given that it was a human being interacting with animals (melding an actor with CGI actually served both a practical and stylistic purpose). But what benefit is there to animating an animated film that needs to be animated by virtue of its all animal cast in the first place?

    I dunno, it feels like Disney might be going overboard with remaking their animated classics (it doesn't help that animated films age differently from live-action ones by virtue of not completely following the same rules as the latter, meaning that you can watch a film from the 90s Renaissance and not think it looks old aside from maybe the CGI).

    Room for improvement?

    Are you fucking blind or just ignotant? Lion King is a perfect Disney animated movie, It doesn't need improving or be tainted by a shitty live action remake which will no doubt be used to push Disney's sjw pandering agenda.

    Great. I hope it'll be better than the original version.

    I didn't say The Lion King needed a remake--live-action or otherwise. It's not perfect. It's good, but not perfect.

    Grab a seat.

    What's the point of this when there are no human characters in the movie? This will literally just be an all CGI movie... but with actual real life backgrounds? Meh.

    Whole concept of this movie is dumb.
    How can this be a live action if entire cast has to be animated as all of them are animals?
    Seems pointless.
