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.
