I don't get the point of these live action remakes...particularly when some are almost shot for shot recreations.

Literally in the official description from Disney

From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king must overcome betrayal and tragedy to assume his rightful place on Pride Rock.

Why did they get James Earl Jones back for this but couldn't get Angela Lansbury for Beauty and the Beast? :x

Looks about how I expected. Uncanny valley on CGI animals is weird. Liked how they didn't show any of them actually moving their mouths to talk :shifty:

Although I agree you're technically correct. Everyone will call it that though, so buckle up you pedantic pumpkin :wub:

Still got shivers from that opening refrain. But yeah, this could go either way. Jungle Book remake was great fun, Beauty and the Beast not so much.

You can...sort of see why given today's political climate but it is a strawberry floating shame.

Best song in the movie, gone. :( I'll still watch it, but it won't be able to top the first without it.

Also, I thought Beauty was every bit as good as the Jungle Book, though both were highly entertaining - especially Christopher Walken's role.

"Every bit as good as the Jungle Book" doesn't seem like high praise.

Jungle Book was fine, but unnecessary.
Beauty and the Beast was terrible, and unnecessary.

Maybe it's just the trailers as I've not seen the actual films but these live action remakes seem to drain the personality out of the originals.

For some reason I feel like there has been about five live action Jungle Book films.

Early days but looks like taking soulless shot for shot to maximum levels right now. Every single shot in that trailer is in the original trailer. Disappointed.

Sequel to a very awesome little film. It's bigger, better and out in a week at Odeon.

First Spider-verse review I've seen and it sounds real good. Really can't wait for Nic Cage Spider-Man Noir

2.0 trailer shows large swathes of the finale. :lol: Looks fun though. Bollywood craziness.
