It's just dull looking and it's like watching a BBC Nature of the wild animals that can speak. They are totally right about the facial expression because there are hardly any in Pumbaa and Timon. It's like watching an actor whole body is being tied up and trying to speak/act/express through heavy facial prosthetic. That's why we don't see movies with real talking cats and dogs doing well at all. Without the hands/arms/body expression the characters becomes lifeless so this is nothing but a moving lips.
Wow just wow. Haven't they did any research of all the realistic talking animal movies out there? They are freaking terrible with just the mouth moving. They took the colorful and the expressive animations right out of this version. To be honest watching this live version kinda gross me out because I have seen many live footage of these wild animals and it's not a pretty sight. That's why I just find it's pretty creepy at time and not really cute at all.Dobson wrote: ↑July 11th, 2019, 6:41 pmhttps://twitter.com/cartoonbrew/status/ ... 7676522497
When asked if he saw the original, no he didn’t.Aladdin is very absurd and stupid. Ewww, there were so many weird stuff that felt so out of place especially during a song number in the gold cave. Hiphop in a middle age era? Hmmm okay, that makes so much sense. And I havent even mentioned other stuff
This just makes me want the new Gambino album. :/Bacon wrote: ↑July 10th, 2019, 4:41 pmhttps://twitter.com/popcravenet/status/ ... 27264?s=21
Music/song itself is fantastic. However, I cannot get over how un-animated and emotionless the animals look like for the sake of looking "realistic."

Alrighty then.Batfan175 wrote: ↑July 12th, 2019, 12:55 amThese remakes still don't have a reason to exist beyond exploiting your childhood nostalgia for better versions of these stories. Go watch those original films at home instead. Chances are, you'll have a better time watching those than wasting your cash on this.
