Critics are telling the exact same story, just with a different score in the end: if you loved the original, this is practically the same thing, only in dazzling photoreal environment. Now, that CGI in particular changes the score significantly whether one liked it or not.
The similarities matter as much as they do with Interstellar/Contact or Inception/Paprika.
Who cares, when the movie is a masterpiece.
And I have about as much nostalgia from Leo the Lion, as I have from The Lion King.
That's not the point. The point is that Disney bullied and trying to cease and desist on Tezuka productions for distributing Kimba. They outright trying to deny and lie about it right to this day. It wouldn't have come to this IF they have said The Lion King was influenced by Kimba.
Shakespeare's Hamlet. LMAO! So not only did they ripoff Kimba The White Lion but borrow from Hamlet and proclaim it as "original".
So they turn an animation masterpiece into cringy shot-for-shot live version. This is going to make money so I don't think Disney is going to give a shit. I wonder if they saw this and and decided to turn Mulan into a more serious live version(The Ballad of Mulan) away from the animation.
