The picture was amazing and people like my mom really think there were real animals playing the parts. The animals all fit their character perfectly looking exactly what people would think that the characters would look like in real life. The way Simba matured was the best part of the movie because of the way they sang and walked through the forest and watched him grow his mane. Simba's songs were sung by Jason Weaver and every song he was in was more and more impressive than the song before. Other important voices are Donald Glover as Simba(when he wasn’t singing), Beyonce is Nala, James Earl Jones is Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejofor played Scar and many other big names played. The little changes from the original were the change in Mufasa’s death, the backstory of Scar, and the hyenas have grown to make their own decisions. The music in the movie was spot on compared to the original movie. This movie was no disappointment in any way and is highly recommended to anyone who is a fan of the past Lion King or of any Disney movie. This is a movie that will stick with people throughout their lives and will never forget.
