When I first saw that the trailer was out the other day, my first thought was, "I don't have time to watch it now, but bookworm will post the trailer later so I'll watch it then." :lol:

This was a beautiful little early look at the movie. Baby Simba was so cute! :inlove: It looks like it could be good! I don't love the big influx of animated to live action movies that seem to be the latest rage, but this looks quite cute, and since they have James Earl Jones, it should sound good. ;)

I'm really split on this one. Part of me acknowledges that it looks really neat to see this in 'real life' (Is this going to be called one of the live action remakes? It's not live action, there are no humans.) but the other part is saying look, this is the perfect example of why this string of remakes is dumb. This is literally shot for shot the exact same movie (at least what has been shown so far) just computer animated instead of drawn.

Yeah, maybe this isn't being called live action. You're right that there are nothing really "live" but I'm not sure what else to classify it is.

I'm assuming that the actual film will have variations from the original, but that always ends up upsetting people who think it's too close to the original and people who think it was too much of a departure. ;) I guess we'll see!

There really is no winning with something like this. One side says if the first movie is a classic why would you change anything, the point should be to make the exact same thing just live so we can experience it in a bigger way. The other side says if you're going to put all the money and work into making a new movie make a new movie. And both sides are right.

I generally agree with you on your whole post, but for some reason speifically still feel optimistic about this particular film, and I can't explain why. I thought the new Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast movies were both big disappointments and have only seen them both once, despite multiple free opportunities to watch them again on Netflix or TV. I don't know why I feel that The Lion King remake might still be good, since I also consider it a childhood animated favourite and it seems to be a similar style of project.

One interesting thing I've heard from a couple people is the thought that it will be weird that it's an all new cast except for James Earl Jones, saying they should have gone completely new. I don't think it will be a problem, in fact I agree with the decision because that voice is so iconic to that role. I'm disappointed they didn't also bring back Jeremy Irons though, since they were open to reprisals, I think that voice is just as iconic.
