The Lion King Remake Is "Astonishing" And "Beautiful"

Image zoom

High praise indeed - and a promising sign ahead of everyone's trip to the cinema when The Lion King is released on 19 July in both the United Kingdom and US. By and large the reaction was very positive, with nearly uniform praise of the movie's computer-generated visuals.

"The Lion King. was more than anything I ever could've wanted", one Twitter user wrote.

Ahead of the premiere, Beyoncé (Nala), Donald Glover (Simba), Billy Eichner (Timon), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa) and the cast walked the Hollywood red carpet hours before film critics released their first reactions.

Obviously, all that never happened, but that was the running gag when Glover, who voices Simba in the film, showed up to promote The Lion King, which held its premiere in Los Angeles nearby Jimmy Kimmel's talk show studio.

He wrote: "The Lion King is a landmark *visual* experience". Knowles-Carter also chipped in to help John and Rice rework their iconic tunes, and together, they also whipped up a new original song - titled "Spirit" - for the film. "Authenticity and heart were important to me".

He blamed both major parties for running up a huge federal budget deficit and letting American jobs to be sent to other countries. Perot, while winning no electoral votes, nevertheless attracted significant support from every region of the country.

Reporter Erik David said The Lion King "is visually immaculate & a game-changer for visual effects".

- Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) July 10, 2019The Lion King is so good, I couldn't tell which talking lions were real & which talking lions were cgi. "I was like, 'What are you talking about?' I didn't even know they were making 'Lion King.' It was a big, big deal". Indeed, the visuals look utterly breathtaking, and box-office tracking has been promising, to say the least, and essentially, Disney has been grabbing all of the entertainment dollars this year.

Along with covers of classic Lion King tracks, this new song is set to make an appearance during a key Nala scene.

At the premiere, Glover also voiced his disbelief over his casting as Simba.
