I thought for The Lion King II they got everyone back except Rowan Atkinson. Why is Mr. Bean too big for The Lion King?

you know actors can choose what they want to do right, if someone doesn't want to do a home video movie then that doesn't mean they're "better" than it.

It's a continuation of what Cameron did 10 years ago on Avatar.

Favreau mentions that in the video that it was a continuation of the technology that was used in Avatar and Jungle Book 2016 but this is the first time the whole movie is done without human characters involved so no need to interact with the real world. 

 

I think that James Cameron is an underrated pioneer of film technology and deserves the same attention that Lucas and Spielberg have gotten to be honest, especially what he was able to do with The Terminator on such a small budget. Hopefully Favreau also gets to that level throughout his career I’d say he is a pretty close with what he has done so far.

It's really hard to classify this as either live action or computer animated. It's clearly the later but it's going for realism more than any other computer animated movie so. . . world's biggest semi-VR Disney remake?

Sorry, but I don't see it. Thus far it looks like the voice work will have to do all the emotional heavy lifting.

 

That Simba sneeze was cute tho.

Mufasa is literally laughing at this point in the trailer. It could even be considered that he's smiling when doing so.

This reminds me of how far we’ve come, I remember watching King Kong back in 2005 and I couldn’t believe how realistic they were able to realize him, the fur and facial expressions, acting together with a real human. But these GIFs above are on another level.

I see a lot of facial emotions and joy in that picture.

Exactly. Even though Foster is smiling in that clip. This should put the rest any concerns of there being no emotions in the animals faces.

I only see a lion with his eyes closed and a half open mouth... You're not gonna convince me that counts as a smile...

 

If Simba wasn't tackling him it'd look like Mufasa got shot.

EDIT:

I might as well add: that is a gorgeous shot in every level. Look at the insects, the grass interaction, it's gorgeous. Only Mufasa's mane is a bit iffy as the hairs don't seems to collide among each other.

The visuals are gorgeous, but I'm calling it as I see it. There is no emoting going on there.

If it were truly live-action, Mufasa would eat Simba in that scene. But that's why I am okay with it being computerized.

This movie also has a spiritual element to it that Star Wars and Avatar had and it's something that Avengers lacks

 

"But what about the soul stone/dimension?"

 

It's quite different especially in the feeling

TLK has a spiritual philosophy/values that is universally relatable (Mufasa's teachings) much like The Force or the pagan religion of Eywa

 

The Mufasa ghost scene will definitely be a religious experience for me

Never thought I would see someone argue that The Lion King remake had a soul.

Lions are not prone to killing their own offspring.  Making sure their genes are the ones to survive is of paramount importance.

Just call it Photorealistic Animation and call it a day.

 

BTW, that GIF with cub Simba and Mufasa is beautiful.

The Good Dinosaur had photorealistic animation, therefore, The Good Dinosaur is live action.

Yeah, but Good Dinosaur has very stylized characters that happens to be in a photorealistic enviroment while Lion King is going for full realism with both the characters and it's enviroment, therefore Good Dinosaur is still an animated movie.

Dinosaur (2000) also had interesting animation. While the enviroment in that movie is live action, the dinosaurs & some other creatures themselves are animated with more realistic designs...and yet that film counts as an animated film.

 

This TLK is pretty much like that film...expect it’s with African animals and treated as live action.
