The big advantage of animation is that it has no bounds in terms of what is possible to show on screen and how it is shown. This is something these remakes are completely lacking because of course, thats what happens when you translate animation into live-action. It takes the charme away imo.

A lion oozing of personality, evilish charme and wit.

A lion.

I think someone from BOT talked about this 6  months ago ...

Who can be that person ... I wonder.

Audiences want to see how the animated movies would look in live action / photorealistic CGI.

 

CGI artists can show their work and improve their technologies.

 

Disney wants the audiences money.

 

Everybody wins. Except that vocal minority upset that these movies aren't catered to them and will continue to complain every month (because, to be fair, at the rate Disney is going there's a new trailer for one of these every month)

I have no problem with any of this except for the highlighted. I don't need any of these movies to "cater" to me and I'm not "upset" that they don't. Even if these movies tried something new that I hated, I'd still consider that more commendable than relying on nostalgia.

Why doesn't Scar sound menacing? 'Run away Simba and never return' didn't have the same impact as in the original when it's said for the 2nd time

Interesting that this LK trailer certainly has its flaws yet people are stoked over seeing it. Meanwhile, the last Aladdin trailer was REALLY good and yet most people are spitting all over it.

 

I actually thought that last Aladdin trailer was MUCH better than the LK trailer today. But I think that both look like very good fun movies.

True

 

TLK teaser > Aladdin teasers

Aladdin trailer > TLK trailer

 

Say what u want about BATB but that movie had a 1-2-3 punch of good teasers/trailers

I mean we've all heard those complaints, but you're acting like it's the same people saying both those things. I'm sure as hell not. For example I haven't seen the new Dumbo movie so I cant comment on its quality, but it's at least commendable that they're trying to do SOMETHING different with the story rather than just giving you the shiny new version of the exact same thing you knew and loved as a kid. I'll take even a little originality over a giant nostalgia-fest any day.

Well of course is not the same people in both cases (although sometimes it is). What I am trying to say is that Disney will always have complains no matter what they do with these live actions. I agree that I actually appreciate when they try to expand the story or make it something different but the remakes that have done that so far, Dumbo and Pete's Dragon, haven't really done really well at the box office. Cinderella and The Jungle Book are my favorite remakes so far because they got the essence of the original but went more in depth on the story with high success critically and did not fall into adding absurd scenes like Beauty and the Beast.

 

As for the new Lion King we don't know if it'll be 100% a shot by shot remake. Of course they are gonna put famous scenes from original on trailer but mainly to attract general audience. Jon Favreau directing it gives me hope it can be another Jungle Book

Talk about a change of tone tacked on to the end of the trailer. Funny though lol 

 

Hopefully the next trailer is less doom and gloom and instead more exciting

The tone changes were the same as Avengers: Endgame teaser trailer. Which were both fine by me.

They are really botching the villains in these upcoming remakes it seems. Oddly enough, they've kinda botched all of em except Shere Khan, Maleficent to the point that they made the most evil Disney villain a sympathetic anti-hero.

It s interesting to note that the current most photoreal CGI are NOT done by ILM which can still do amazing things obviously but now 20 companies can do amazing things in CGI, 30 even.

Anyone see Mogli on Netflix? While the CGI pales compared to Jungle Book and what we saw in the LK trailer, the animals have a LOT more emotion and you can see almost a humanistic type emoting going on. Heck, for that matter, Lion Witch and the Wardrobe had better emotion.

 

That's why I say don't worry and don't judge too harshly yet. This has gotten amazing praise by insiders. We were purposely not shown much mouth movement because either they were holding back or they are still tweeking it. 

 

Right now, it looks like something you can see as an IMAX 3D nature film at a museum about the Serengeti. Give it time. People changed their tune about Aladdin. They will change their tune about this too.

 

Oh dang @Yandereprime101189you posted about Mogli just as I was posting lol. But yeah. Mogli has emotions with a far lower budget. I expect to see emotions along with great CGI for TLK.

The thing with Mowgli though is that they don't really work at all. Some of them stop looking like the actual animals, especially Shere Khan.

 

If you really think about it, just about every talking animal movie that's live action don't really try to give the animal's human-like expressions. Outside of POTM movies, but that's because monkeys can be extremely expressive.  Just look kat the ones that only really animate the mouths over real animals.

 

That's kinda where this Lion King movie is going for when they say it's live action, instead of stylzing the facial animations, they're going for realism, that way the animals personality will come, as it did with Jungle Book (in which I've seen people also complain the animals weren't expressive in that like they were in the animated film), in body language.

 

Scar just looks really freaking evil. One can say he's scrawny and starving, but he wasn't really the most healthy looking of lions in the original either. Mufasa's body language oozes royalty. You can see Simba shrinking in almost a fetal position as Scar tells him to run away.

 

They do seem to give a bit more facial expressions with Timon though at the end. He actually looks like he's smiling

I was suprised how well it did work. The range of emotion and expression was impressive.

That IS the argument. They spent all this money and labor just to do that gimmick.

The expressions were impressive in Mowgli. Unfortunately, they looked to human in head/skull shape. There should be a legit balance.

 

I'm just bias due to how much I love the original 

 

Probably not the best to listen to me 😛

I don't really give a crap about them changing the story or not, it's not going to change the original movie anyway.

 

However the realistic take didn't really interest me, especially for a movie that features a pure animal cast. The face of most animals are not capable of making facial expression that human can relate to. I can already feel the "can  you feel the love tonight" scene is gonna be a disaster.
