They've announced that a live-action remake of my favorite Disney movie, The Lion King, and I am pissed off as HELL about it.
This is the movie that I identify my childhood with. I hold it near and dear to my heart. Even thought I've watched it hundreds of times, it's still just as fun to watch as it was when I was 5 years old. And now, it feels like Disney is stabbing my generation in the back by doing this stupid remake.
No amount of impressive CGI can capture the beauty & essence of the traditional hand-drawn animated classic that millions of people such as myself hold near & dear to their heart.
Honestly, I'd rather see a new animated sequel as opposed to the same recycled plot. The Disney Channel already has a hit show in The Lion Guard, so do something with that! Anything else would be better than this.
It's clear that Disney's only motive for this remake is making big money at the cost of ruining the childhoods of millions. Somewhere, Walt Disney is rolling over in his grave...
