"The Lion King" remake is a game-changing technological feat, as it was made entirely through photo realistic computer-generated animation, but that might also be its biggest flaw.




Director Jon Favreau ("The Jungle Book") was so dedicated to making the animals look real that their lack of expressions makes you feel less invested in the story at times.




However, it still has all the memorable scenes and songs that made the original 1994 animated movie such a beloved classic.

Disney's "live-action" remake of "The Lion King" (in theaters July 19) is its boldest update of one of its classic animated movies to date.
It takes the photo realistic computer-generated animation used in 2016's "The Jungle Book" (which went on to make close to $1 billion worldwide at the box office) and elevates it beyond anything done before. The look of this movie is so sharp and stunning, it feels like you're watching a nature documentary.
"The Jungle Book" director Jon Favreau is once again at the helm for this landmark moment in movies. From the lush vistas of the African plains to close-ups of a mouse scurrying around, every frame of this movie looks real. That's especially true of the animals who make up the characters of the story, and that is where Favreau's dedication to reality in the visuals butts heads with his storytelling.
