How Disney Decimated Lion King

Lion King 2019 was the worst animated film ever made. How is it also the highest grossing? Let’s jump into an hour long analysis video that explains why in excruciating detail. Together we’re untangle the entrenched web of terrible filmmaking. When people say “It’s unfair to compare it to the original” we’ll stubbornly snuff our fingers into our ear holes.

The circle of life scene is garbage juice and the songs are recreated without any love. Simba is a little brat, Nala is a big nag, Rafaki should have been a chimp, Mufasa looks like a shy football, Timon and Pumbaa… Actually I quite like Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner…. But that’s the only thing I like!

I like Childish Gambino (Donald Glover), I’m partial to Beyonce and of course I have my respect for Hans Zimmer and for Disney in 90s. But I hate everything about the way they’ve been used to hijack our childhood nostalgia, bottle it and sell it to us.

Jon Favreau was hired to direct the remake of the classic animated Lion King 1994. He’s the guy that directed Chef. Have you seen Chef? I did. It just made me hungry. He also directed The Jungle Book (2015). Why Disney keep remaking their films into live action we’ll never know. Oh wait I do know and I explain why in this video.

They remade Cinderalla, Aladdin, Mulan, Dumbo, 101 Dalmatians, The Goofy Movie, Lilo and Stitch, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Black Cauldron, King Arthur and some other ones too on the list… Loads and loads of them. When is this going to stop? Do we all want to revert back to our childhoods to when life was easy? Is that what it is?!

This video took over six months to finish, it is sponsored by. no one. It was written by Max Bardsley and Samuel Jones. With ‘Alternative Circle Of Life’ audio by Ollie McAuley.

Thanks to our patrons who continue to support us even though we are terrible creators. Peace and love 💓 💖 💕 💘

  • My biggest disappointment is they cut out the best song in the movie

  • It’s like taking all the bolts and screws out of an airplane. A tiny bit has been removed and it still looks the same on the outside, but those little pieces are what made it work in the first place. Such a shame it didn’t crash.

  • During your rant about how Nala greets Simba when they re-meet up, what was the little girl you show in various frames from? It looks familiar but I can't quite put my finger on it.

  • Real fiction is an idea of someone who's not an artist. Fiction is based on reality. Reality is not fiction. Yes, I agree with you how stupid it all is.

  • Much like in a documentary, because it takes place in Africa almost all the voice actors are black and some of them are white, because, black people live in Africa and some white people live in South Africa. Yeah, way to be creative. Also, hey wouldn't it be super imaginative to make a movies about talking animals like reality!? Though, there are no talking animals in Africa besides human beings.

  • The Jungle Book remake was fucking shit, and even worse than the Lion King remake. It's like the directors seem to have forgotten that these movies were MUSICALS. They absolutely ruined every musical score from the Jungle Book, which is quite an accomplishment considering how brilliant the original "Bare Necessities" and "I Wanna Be Like You" are.

  • The reason it's all gone is, because, in our age, of critical theory, artistic and religious significance aren't real and just the product of cultural perspectives. Lion king happens in Africa, but it's not about animals its about human nature within western tradition, but in modernity there is no human nature, no western tradition that's not evil. There is no artistic intent or spiritual significance all of that is just your patriarchal protestant bias, and, thus we see the death of art, because nothing can have any meaning extra your perspective. There's nothing to show just things to see. Who gives a fuck about what's really going on in nature unless you're doing science. Art is not fucking science. Man is not the servant of knowledge; knowledge is the servant of man.

  • Super-realistic animals wasn’t the problem here, the problem was that they gave them normal colours! See here:

    Mufasa – golden with red mane
    Scar – dark red with black mane but just ended up looking like a scruffy old Lion!
    Zazu – blue and white with orange bill but was turned into a plain white
    Pumbaa – also dark red fur with black hair on his head and tail
    Timon – light gold with the meerkat stripes and red hair

    The animals were just too realistic! Someone on YouTube gave Simba and Friends a makeover with more “Disney-looking eyes” and they looked awesome!

    At least they can’t get any more … The Little Mermaid: a red headed mermaid with blue eyes, will be played by a black actress? Ah f*ck 😒😒😒

  • As bad as this movie was, I wouldn't exactly call it the worst animated film ever made when Titanic: The Legend Goes On exists. And no just because it has facial expressions doesn't make it a better movie.
