I reckon they are stretching it calling The Lion King live action. It's just CGI rather than traditional animation.whats with all the live action disney remakes? does anything original come out of hollywood anymore?
They are remaking stuff from the 90s to cash in on nostalgia value. People my age who went to see The Lion King as 10 year olds now have kids that they can take to see the remake. There's no need at all for a Toy Story 4, everything was wrapped up in #3. But I'm still going to see it at some stage.
Plus Disney want to be woke. They didn't just coincidentally replace Simba, Scar, Nala etc. with black voice actors. Just like they didn't just stumble across Halle Bailey when casting for The Little Mermaid. Funnily enough they didn't rock the boat with Aladdin...
