This isn't the original Lion King, I am reviewing but the real life version of The Lion King. Anyways same story line as the cartoon back in 1994 which I remember very well. Anyways the difference tho it was real life footage but like I said the lines were the same and you will recognize one voice who did the voice of Darth Vader, he reprised his role as Musfasa the dad to Simba. The rest of the cast was pretty much new voices technically but it was so easy to actually pinpoint and I did whisper to my mom that I swear I heard James Earl Jone's voice as he has that distinctive voice that is so easy to know it's him. I did some research on the voices and the cast and I think I only saw one that was revised their role but I could of been wrong and you guys can correct me in the comments if I am totally wrong on what I said and I can fix it. I can say the movie it was very nice to see again as I haven't seen it in at least 20 years since I was in early in my elementary years like Grade 4 or something like that so I was really excited to see the movie. Also when they played Circle of Life, I got those same chills the first time I said the movie when I was in my childhood so it gave me a ton of excitement. The one voice I didn't know was Beyonce as I didn't know she voice Nala in the movie.
Now the movie I'd give a 5 out of 5 obviously as I know the plot and the story line to the movie and enjoyed the movie and it sure brought back memories of my childhood. I highly recommend the movie especially for the kids. I think it is great that they did a real life version of this and the other real life movie I would like to see since we are on the topic of movies they re did in real life versions is Aladdin which is another movie I remember and would also like to see as well down the road. I am now getting into these movies since they are bringing em back into real life version of the movies. If I have to I will indeed will wait till it comes out onto DVD as it has been out for quite sometime now in the theaters so I am going to wait as this week in 2 days from now will be going to see Spider-Man: Homecoming which is now out in theaters and yes I will do a non spoiler post eventually this week at some point. It was hard to write this as most of you remember the original movie from 1994 and I promise to give you more in depth review on the next movie I see which will be on Tuesday and a Wednesday review!
