The First Lion King which was released in 1994 was directed by Rob Minkoff and Rogers Allers, and was written by Chris Sanders, Joe Ranft, Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise, Brenda Chapman, this movie was a classic and made records for years.
This new one that was release this year (2019), the movie was directed by Jon Favreau and written by Jeff Nathanson, the movie had a bit of action, adventure, animation, and Drama it was about 110mins long which was similar to the last one.
The first edition of the Lion King 1994 grossed approximately $1 billion in earnings and about $214m from Lion Kings toys sold during Christmas in 1994 alone, they did so well that I don’t think a remake was necessary.
The film was tentatively released in US on the 19th of July, 2019, so far the movie has grossed about $1,3b globally becoming the second highest grossing animated film and the 12th highest grossing film of all time.
They tried to act out the same old story, but with some new voices, I liked the fact that they tried to use real lions this time, but the honest truth I really did prefer the old animated formats, it felt much better than this new one.
Any need for this story line? Well here you go…..Lion King started in the very same way like the previous one, where Mufasa had a newly born son called “Simba”, he was presented to the entire clan for recognition.
Simba his beloved son was going to take after him, when he is gone. Mufasa loved his son so much and was willing to teach him a lot and protect him from all harm. One major concern for him was his cruel brother “Scar”.
Scar was his only brother who was very jealous and envious of his elder brother “Mufasa”. He earnestly wanted to take over the Kingdom from his brother and was willing to even kill him. Scar was so greedy, and desperately wanted the throne so he came up with an evil plan to get his brother and his son out of the way, so he could take over.
You will need to watch the full movie to see how Scar went about his envious escapades. Even if I’m sure you already know by now.
