The Lion King

A really short one. To be honest, I didn't finish watching it. Great visuals; basically they just swapped the animation with insanely realistic CGI. And that really turned me off. No more cuteness, and I felt the humours weren't effective because of the visuals. They didn't add much new things either. I know it isn't fair for me to judge the entire film based on just less than half an hour of viewing.

Its hard to explain, but although Beauty and the Beast is almost the same (animation to live-action, same story few changes), but it still felt fresh to me.

I think Disneys ran out of creativity hence either buying up the competition (Pixar, Marvel, Lucas Arts) or remaking all the old cartoons like Aladdin, Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. Aladdin looks cheesy as, Lion King looks visually good but as you say looks to lack the charm of the original. Although I've seen neither film and am going off the trailers. I've seen B & B and whilst it sticks close to the original it still lacked something compared to the cartoon.

Aladdin wasn't bad, just the main issue for me was whilst Will Smith was good enough in it, I just kept thinking Robin Williams was just so much better. Lion King again lacked the feel-good charm the original had
