    I hate Disney, they are ruining cinema. Period.
    What we need is a disaster on The Last Jedi level when all of the fanboys turned on Disney, which immediately contributed to the flop that was Solo and got them shaking. Though TLJ didn’t deserve that much hate.
    But that is not going to happen. Because general audience aren’t toxic fanboys.

    Dumbo was awful. Lion King looks beige and boring, Aladdin looks like a mess.

    I think they will stop with Mulan and rethink some stuff. And only because Mulan is already in production (is it?).

    They may end up having a weird summer with 2 billion grossing Avengers and a bunch of live action flops.

    Reviews are coming in for the live action remake of Aladdin, and they’ve been pretty mixed so far.

    I don’t know if anyone has heard the new song titled ‘Speechless’, but from the snippets I’ve heard, I pretty much feel the same way I felt about the new songs from the Beauty & the Beast remake. It just doesn’t sound like it fits in with any of the pre-existing songs from the cartoon.

    The soundtrack could save the lion king reboot. I hope. Im more excited for the new music than the actual lion king movie.

    After experiencing the “Aladdin” disaster, I’m nervous for “The Lion King”.

    Disney needs to stick to the formula and adapt stories exactly the way we remember them.

    I’m tired of the forced contemporary story lines and unnecessary plot twists.

    Though the thing is why go through retelling the same story verbatim when you could just watch the original?

    Anybody see the new Lion King posters? They need to fire whoever is in charge of these campaigns. Aladdin’s was quite terrible too.

    And these posters are LAZY as fuck. Zero interest, zero design, nothing.

    ^I even saw side-by-side comparisons of some of the designs to their 2D animated counterparts on Twitter. The designs from the cartoon look like they have so much more emotion put into them while the CG designs all look the same, BLAND.

    A teaser trailer for the live action Mulan dropped yesterday, and it (at least) appears to be going in a far more interesting direction.

    For me the most successful live action remake has been The Jungle Book despite not being a musical. I love Mulan and when they announced that it wouldn’t be a musical either I was annoyed af. But this new trailer actually looks really awesome. Maybe more of these modern tellings need to eliminate their musical aspects to actually be good? Because Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast, despite being very successful, were mediocre at best. Disney just needs to get it together and give us a live action Treasure Planet and Atlantis!!!

    ^Exactly! If Disney really wants to continue making live action revamps of their beloved animated properties, I think they should just do straightforward re-tellings of the original stories they were based on as opposed to bland retreads of great movies we can already watch at home for free.

    Based on some of the voice acting clips from Beyonce and Donald Glover, the Lion King is shaping up to be lukewarm. It’s going to make tons of money though.

    I read somewhere that Jeremy Irons really wanted to be part of the remake but the filmmakers rejected him. And the trailers suggests that the dark vibe from Scar is not that scary at all.

    Im gonna see it anyway at the cinema. The Lion King is my favourite Disney movie

    Probably because bringing back the original cast would make the whole movie even more pointless. We already have the 1994 animated classic to experience their performances, we don’t need a remake with the same cast. Which is part of the problem I have with James Earl Jones returning as Mufasa. It’s not the same thing as something like a film version of Hamilton with the original cast reprising their roles, because then their performances would be able to reach a larger audience.
