The Lion King Plot

Simba idolises his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Lacking A Soul Or Heart!

This is a full spoiler review because I REALLY doubt any one has NOT seen the original Lion King and this film has no significant difference in story or plot. By significant, I mean NONE. This film is exactly the same as the original, except worse. So much worse.

I WAS REALLY excited when I learnt that a so called ‘Live Action’ Lion King remake was in the works. On release, I went to see the film First day First show! Sadly my excitement slowly drained away within the opening scene.

Lets find out why…

The epic scene of the Simba being held up in the shaft of light. The scene which is still in pop culture 25 years later, that scene is completely messed up. No shaft of sunlight...
