    Hey Disney fans, how excited are you for the 2019 remake of “The Lion King”? The “not quite” live-action remake of the 1994 animated feature follows the plot faithfully, but there are some subtle differences if you know where to look. Zoom in on the details as Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa get the photorealism treatment and find out which documentary presenter inspired director Jon Favreau’s vision for the remake.

    With a starry voice cast that includes Beyoncé as Nala, this is very much a current version, but there are also some nods to the past - discover how James Earl Jones connects both of the movies, plus what exciting new addition Elton John is bringing to the 2019 version. And you’ll want to hear all about the major changes to the hyenas. If you love Disney movie remakes as much as us, subscribe to TheThings for more great videos like this one. Thanks for watching!

    Haven't seen the movie yet But based off of this video it seems that it will hold up to the original better then previous Disney movie remakes and oh my God I don't wanna get started with the shity little mermaid movie that come out soon... I'm almost tempted to get that movie make a video of Me torching it on fire and then sending that video to Disney whoever came up with The changes for the Little mermaid Should go kill themselves

    I know why they made the three main hyenas female, or at least i can theorize: Female hyenas are the bigger of the genders and usually are the higher ranking, doing most hunts and being the dominant leaders of the clans. Compared to male hyenas who are at the very bottom ranking, who start mediocre and go lower as they grow,(Females start mediocre and go higher as they grow.) Personally, I like this realistic touch to make the hyenas more similar to the real wild hyenas.

    • Savage Yoongi
      Savage Yoongi 26 days ago

      A darker fuller mane shows dominance, that's why scar wasn't king. If you ask me, the live action is better for realistic concepts than the cartoon

  • Garett Crook
    Garett Crook 29 days ago

    This needs to stop, replacing 2d animation with CGI without doing anything else at all doesn’t make a good movie. But Disney doesn’t care, it’ll rake in the cash from people who think they’re going to get a little nostalgia or a little bit of joy from watching a movie. You won’t, there are a reason Disney’s old animated movies were classics. Because they were good, voiced by amazing people, and the animation was great. Photo realism won’t bring the same emotion to the characters and The Lion King 2019 proves that. Animals weren’t designed to be able to convey emotion like an animated character is. If you go and spend your money on this you are reenforcing an idea that Disney can just repaint something and make millions off of it. We should be voting with our wallets and showing that we want the same classic feeling for new movies, that we want Disney to go back to actually trying with their stuff. Currently they don’t do any trying at all because they already own half of everything.

    Her Southern accent was too strong and took away from Nala's character. Could someone not send her to classes to alter it. They might as well have just renamed Nala and called her Beyonce. It freakin annoyed me. Aaargh! All the other characters were on point but she ruined Nala. She shouldve just stuck to singing on the soundtrack.

      Redscorpion I was just asking?

      Beyblader Kid not really it’s kinda of common knowledge, like how the dominant gorilla has a silver back.

    • Beyblader Kid
      Beyblader Kid 27 days ago

      Redscorpion get that from film theory Or searched it up? Because I new that since I was 4 maybe 5.

    • Redscorpion
      Redscorpion 27 days ago

      Beyblader Kid it would make sense, in real life black Maine’s mean a lion is more dominant and has more testosterone which in turns makes them more attractive to female lioness.

    • Beyblader Kid
      Beyblader Kid 28 days ago

      x0FluffyTheBunny0x sorry just saw his black mane myself I thought it wasn’t black because every time I saw him I only saw the front of his mane making me believe it wasn’t black.

    Would it be a good reason to want to make a live action remake of The Lion King to to see how it would loook like if it was realistic?

    • Garett Crook
      Garett Crook 29 days ago

      Gregory Forster No, because when you make it ‘realistic’ you lose all the facial expressions of the characters in the animated movie. Which makes them feel more human and more alive to us.

    When i saw Scar i was shook because i didn’t even recognised him like i know Disney wants to make it more realistic ( i know talking animals don’t exist) but like they could just make scar a bit more recognisable ?

    • Belinda Enata
      Belinda Enata 26 days ago +1

      Savage Yoongi Mufasa has lighter but fuller hair Scar has darker hair and the hair on his elbows(idk) so Scar is a masai lion so Scar would be the real leader. And so he is more masculine and is normally more aggressive. Scar would probably loose the battle with Mufasa that’s why he’s the leader otherwise Scar would be the “king”.

    • Savage Yoongi
      Savage Yoongi 26 days ago

      If you don't no, a darker and fuller mane shows dominance, Mufasa has those things, scar doesn't, so that's why he wasn't king

    Nothing can be as good as the Original Lion King, that being said, I think this movie will prevail and offer something different that the other "version" did not. That's not saying it won't be good. Just it's own way of being "good"

      @Jared Obst Yeah, Beauty and the Beast was also longer with "new" content but that didn't add much value to the original story. Review scores are already really average with people saying "Yeah, it's pretty much the original, just everything is CG"

    • Jared Obst
      Jared Obst Month ago

      Ryan Carson no. It’s the fact that there are entirely new scenes, making the movie 30 minutes longer than the original......

    • Ryan Carson
      Ryan Carson Month ago +2

      Joel Kerper What can it actually offer that’s different? The fact that it uses CGI? That’s not really a strength as it’s apparent that the characters life and expression are all gone in this remake, Scar no longer really looks threatening in any unique way, he just looks like an emotionless Lion, even in parts where he shouldn’t be.
