From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau’s all-new 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.
Insider tip: “The new version amplifies and deepens all that is good in the original. The key is in the visuals. Photorealistic computer-generated imagery renders its African landscapes and animals with astonishing realism” (Soren Andersen, The Seattle Times). Mark Hughes, Forbes, adds: “Packed with cutting-edge effects, enjoyable & amusing performances, songs you all know & can sing along with, & a few little surprises, The Lion King is sure to thrill audiences of all ages.” Kirsten Acuna, Insider: “If you grew up loving the animated movie, the remake will transport you back to the ’90s and make you feel like a kid again.”
