First reactions are in: http://collider.com/the-lion-king-reviews/
They seem to be glowing across the board as I expected and hoped. I've kept my excitement in check, but seeing these reactions gets me a excited to see this movie now.

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."
But fuck it man, I got shivers none the less.

And playing a bit devil’s advocate here but I’d say whatever is lost in translation, something else was created here. Hyper-realism, yes, but also something you don’t get from the original, like Nala literaly licking Simba’s face to show affection. I don’t know, just too intrigued by the whole photorealism approach right now. I feel it will work most of the time if not throughout the whole movie. The story is just too strong and the actors can sing without autotune for a change.

Having a Simba that doesn't use a different actor for the singing parts is also pretty crazy to me.

Haha yeah. You know what’s even crazier? Finally knowing he had two different voices in the original. :lol:

THE LION KING feels like the world’s longest and least convincing deepfake.

Goddamnit this was going to be my headline.

it's the Disney equivalent of Gus Van Sant's PSYCHO.
Honestly not trusting the typical Disney shills on this one...frosty, Scireta, Germain etc.
