There is no chance of a family aimed movie opening higher than Star Wars and IW. Come on now. And I don't buy for a minute Disney's tracking is suggesting anything of the sort. This was a studio whose tracking was sheep-ish to even predict EG would break the OW. 

 1) BATB did $174m outside of summer and I2 did $182m last year. TLK beating them by 25% wouldn’t be at all surprising. 

 

2) Was that Disney’s internal tracking or what they told the outlets and media? Those aren’t the same thing.

Every official "source" we heard reported EG's tracking from Disney as extremely modest. Same goes for TFA and IW. Their tracking was far below what it actually did. How is this source remotely official? Don't buy it for a moment. Sounds like more people getting completely carried away with expectations for this movie. Especially now that Aladdin is doing well, just fueling the over-estimates.

What is a studio’s internal tracking and what the studio releases to press may not be the same. For all you know Disney will say 150m+. That said let us wait till end of June when we will get Tracking data from Trade. That will give a picture. I can’t see it below I2.

it's amazing just how much of the design gets lost in the translation to live action. Nala is just a regular indistinct lion yet her hand drawn animation character is instantly recognisable... but that above ^ is just any generic lion.

 

every time I see a shot or clip from this film I just get more depressed.

This is the only of the Disney cartoon-to-live-action-remakes i may be interested in.

 

I might not be in the minority. I believe this is gonna be pretty big...

I've seen most of the movie. All i can say is that it has a different vibe to The Jungle Book, way more epic and artistically mesmerizing in every single frames. If there's any problems that has to do with its box office, quality won't be one of them

Jungle Book and this put MPC at the forefront of the CGI game IMO.

Nothing else comes close currently.

So long ILM ...

I'll see this on an airplane a few years from now, how it was meant to be viewed

jesus. no.

This is a key problem with making the characters in TLK look photo-realistic. Warthogs are not pleasant to look at.
