Default Re: "The Gravy Train"- I mean, "The Lion King" (July 2019)

Similarly to Aladdin this month, yesterday the house of mouse dropped... another teaser spot?
More on that later, Long Live the King:

Well, preaching to the choir and all, but I don't think the studio could market this as a shot for shot remake more if they tried. To think all it took for me to see that was to show nearly every shot from the opening to the original... ( ).


Furthermore, between this and the Aladdin spot, the fact that we're just months away from both films and all we've gotten is mood pieces for them (why no traditional trailers otherwise?), from where I sit they appear to be just aiming to wring out the nostalgic teat that keeps on teating.


So yeah, I'm looking forward to performances from Donald Glover's Simba, John Oliver's Zazu, John Kani's Rafiki, Chiwetel Ejiofor's Scar... and that's about it.

A trailer is out : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TavVZMewpY



While it's nice to see Disney releasing proper trailers for their 90s renaissance era remakes, I'm still not convinced honestly.


I'm a little worried that these realistic looking animals aren't going to be so physically expressive which considering how emotional the original Lion King was, is kind of important. The animated characters were so expressive and it really helped tell the story and character development.

Also, Scar's voice sounds... really underwhelming. Don't get me wrong Chiwetel Ejiofor is a great actor and all, but for someone who is going to be compared to Jeremy Irons... that's a tough act to follow. Although I do think he can bring a great performance to Scar, provided that the film has: A. Good writing and B. Good direction to guide him.



Other than that, it looks like it's going to be the same old nostalgia trip as mentioned in the last post.
