Babe exists and works. Its sequel too.

I see nothing wrong with that clip, other than the aesthetic which goes in completely opposite direction with the color palette due to it being inspired by real african savana.

Serkis gets it, and he did it so beautifully in his terrific adaptation of Kipling, Favreau doesn't. But that's just me unfortunately and people apparently want this and Jungle. Eh, their loss.

yeah the animals creep me the fuck out

they're boringly unexpressive, but since they talk it gets uncanny

who thought this was a good idea?

Absolute gutter. Disney rightfully got what was coming, though they deserve worse. The movie doesn't even look "photorealistic", it's some halfbreed between photorealism and typical animation like The Incredibles 2.

Those movies are pre-CGI with actual animals. You can’t compare them.

What’s ironic is that this looks more dull, colorwise, than an actual nature documentary (on film)!

That movie was also in 1995 and the first of its kind to use the mouth morphing technology and more forgiving back then. On top of that it was an original and interesting takes on a story to something like Toy Story where there it also involved human and the toys and animals can talk and hear one another. Since the CGI standard have been raised The Lion King takes to me was a wrong approach. It brought nothing new but making it worst. Without The Lion King name and brand this would be on par with the 2000 Dinosaur movie with the same approach.

Dinosaur was considered an animated film too. This is bonkers.
