After delivering a blockbuster with the live-action version of the blockbuster 1992 flick Aladdin, Disney is back with the live-action version of their 1994 blockbuster The Lion King, helmed by Iron man maker Jon Favreau. Here's team AP Herald's exclusive first on net The lion King review.
Simba is inspired by his father, King Mufasa, and wants to be a king someday, but isn't celebrated by the people of the kingdom and Scar, Mufasa's brother has a plan too. The throne desires lead to a battle and with betrayal and chaos, tragedy unfolds and Simba goes on an exile. It's upto Simba now to team up with unlikely, unexpected friends and find a way to the throne and how Simba gets the throne he rightfully deserves is what The Lion King is all about.
Donald Glover and Beyonce Knowles as Simba and Nala are enjoyable with their chemistry, while Timon and Pumbaa are the most entertaining of the lot powered by voices of Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner. James Earl Jones gives a nostalgic feel with his dubbing. Chivotel Ejiofer lends the menacing nature to the character, while John Oliver is good.
Hans Zimmer delivers a stunning background score and all the songs are too good and visuals add more power. Caleb Deschanel's stunning cinematography captures the lovely forest visuals and the animals to perfection while editing by Mark Livolsi and Adam Gerstel is taut.
Jon Favreau has taken up the direction of the live-action version of the blockbuster 1994 flick and he has done a commendable job, adapting the classic perfectly, staying faithful to the original. Jon Favreau has extracted the best from his voice cast and while Simba and Nala chemistry is good in a romantic angle, Timon and Pumbaa entertainer with their humor and Beyonce, Donald Glover, Seth, and Billy have done a superb work. Packing the screenplay love, action, betrayal, friendship and all kinds of emotions with the animals, Jon Favreau has given his best, while getting perfect support from the CG team and the technical department and makes sure The Lion King is a must watch adaptation of 1994 classic and makes it an instantly likable feel-good entertainer.
