The hype surrounding The Lion King remake was unreal when it was announced. To be fair every Disney remake catapults fans into an excited and judgmental (here's looking at you Little Mermaid haters) frenzy when the news is dropped, but The Lion King holds a special place in people’s hearts. AND there was a stellar cast line up. So, how could they go wrong?
That’s kind of where the problem lies. The movie producers figured they couldn’t go wrong, so didn’t try very hard to make the movie different or expand upon character’s or backstories. It was a carbon copy of the original just with more realistic animation and Beyoncé’s voice sounding too extra to ever do Nala justice. All in all, The Lion King may have been better off untouched.
