What stands out about the teaser that it features an almost shot-for-shot recreation of the opening from the 1994 animated version. We break down all the differences and similarities with intense scrutiny.

                  Thanks for not trashing the new movie, especially about the "color" one is a cartoon, the orher is live action. Do people not realize that Africa is not the same color as the cartoon makes it appear

                                          Pretty sure the red stick thing was changed to make it more "realistic" to the savanna, as the debate about what kind of fruit it was brought to light, that such a fruit didn't exist in that territory. SPOILER ALERT>>>
                                          They also removed the line "Tastes like chicken" because... chickens didn't exist in Africa! There was also no iconic, and much loved, tower of animals in "I just can't wait to be king" song... I was waiting for it, and it just never happened. It took soooo much away from that scene. there was also no funny scene with Zazu singing "Lovely bunch of coconuts" in a cage ... why? because there ARE no coconuts in Africa. I was looking forward to the song with Beyoncé ,.... but her voice just didn't blend with Simba's so that whole scene, despite being visually amazing, was... lost. The thing that they did manage to add in the remake, was a sinister feel to the Elephant Grave yard, and the Hyena's. if you're hoping for funny Hyena's, you won't get them. Shenzi, is much more dark.They are trying to make a fantasy movie into a realistic one, and... in my opinion, that was the first mistake.

                                              Does it really matter which hand he used to put the stuff on simbas head.

                                                  I'm just seeing this video now but it's clear now that Mr. Fowler had reason to worry about how this movie was going to be reinterpreted.

                                                  Bottom line, the remake is absolutely dreadful. Rather than using the technology to show us something we haven't seen before Disney decided to do nearly a shot-for-shot remake but managed to remove all the charm, energy and emotion from the film its based on. Hell, I've seen more emotional range from the Muppets.

                                                  And Beyoncé's involvement in this movie is completely unnecessary. Nala barely has any more lines than she did in the original and other than recording two songs I'm guessing Beyoncé recorded her lines for the movie in a single afternoon. And don't even get me started on how they destroyed Rafiki. Talk about destroying a character.

                                                  Most of the moments where I had a modicum of fun was with Timon and Pumba but their antics are hardly worth the price of admission as this movie is a soulless, uninspiring mess of a movie worthy of no one's attention or box office dollars. If I ever want to watch The Lion King I'll watch the original. In my mind the remake doesn't exist as I don't acknowledge garbage other than to bag it up and take it out before it stinks up my house.

                                                            Otherwise, stop fussing over the small stuff.
