THE LION KING
By Mary Cox
Walt Disney does it again! This is the most amazing movie. As I watched, I kept wondering how they trained the animals to do all the things they did even though I knew that this was all CGI (Computer Generated Imagery). The animals really looked real.
“The Lion King” was directed by Jon Favreau. He also directed “The Jungle Book.”
The screenplay was written by Jeff Nathanson on a story by Brenda Chapman based on characters by Irene Mecchi, Jonathan Roberts and Linda Woolverton.
Disney redid the animated version of “the Lion King” keeping the beautiful story and wonderful music from Elton John.
Donald Glover is the voice of Simba. Keegan Michael Key is Kaman. Seth Rogen voices Pumbaa while Chiwetel Ejiofor is Scar. James Earl Jones reprises his role as Mufasa and Beyonce is Naala.
Everyone who loved the original “Lion King” should love this film. This version of “The Lion King” has brought CGI into new level we have never seen before. You must see this on the big screen to really get the feel of the film. I felt like I had just taken a trip to the Serengeti Plain.
This is a film that will be loved by children and adults alike. Do Not miss it!
