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. This Live Adaptation of a well-loved Classic was directed by Jon Favreau under Walt Disney Pictures.

WHAT I LIKE?
For a classic masterpiece you loved since your childhood, any live adaptations will surely be nostalgic and magical. The LION KING of course didn’t disappoint. The Live Adaptation captures exactly how it should be. With some pretty impressive Visuals and Cinematography, the Live Adaptation depicted the African Wilderness precisely. The CIRCLE OF LIFE Opening Number itself is more than enough. I am also impressed with the Musical Numbers and Musical Scoring on the film. It was executed well and I am loving Beyonce even more too. With a great combination and formula of adventure, drama, comedy & romance, The Lion King is truly a family-friendly film. Watching the Lion King Again brings back so many memories and joy we felt when it first aired years ago. For fans, I am surely almost all will be pleased with this film. For me, it was worth-watching.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
Somehow, its not as classic as the first one but hey, the whole REMAKE is such a joy to watch.
