    hmm...not receiving a lot of positive reviews.
    I would have thought Disney would have hit this out of the ballpark.

    The entire concept of the movie is deeply flawed.

    There is basically nothing new. A few alterations to dialogue and some song texts, a few minor characters, but nothing of consequence. The story is the exact same. Literally. The shots are often the same, frame by frame. The music is the same, note by note.

    But here is what is missing. The character. While the voice actors (in the german version, can't speak for the english one) do an amazing job, the animals don't show any expression because... well, they are animals. They don't have facial expressions like we do, or like their handdrawn counterparts have. While you can hear anguish, sorrow, happiness, love and fear, you don't see it. The animals move naturally, but talk. Which makes for a deeply disturbing experience.

    There is nothing bad to say about the movie, but there is nothing good to be said either, except for the visuals. They are great! But overall this movie was entirely pointless, except for making money.

    Finally got to see this today and I gotta ask why I keep torturing myself by seeing these remakes?

    Actors are great and the visuals are great, unfortunately the two together are as disjointed as me in a kids jungle gym. Either go watch this movie if you are deaf or blind, not both....

    All this movie made me want to do is watch the original Lion King

    Me:

    Oh okay, Jungle Book wasn't so bad after all. Let's try and have an open mind about this one.

    *Watches trailer*

    Eh... is this supposed to be Scar? Is Jeremy Irons dead?


    *googles Jeremy Irons*

    Hm, he's still alive. Did he rape someone? Someone accused him of harassment or something? Drugs maybe?


    *googles Jeremy Irons drugs rape*

    Nothing of substance, weird.

    *googles Jeremy Irons Lion King remake*

    Finds interview of him saying he wasn't even asked to play his role.

    Hm, okay. Maybe this is some "passing the torch" type of deal, new fresh faces / voices and stuff.

    *finds James Earl Jones reprising his role*

    *finds out all main roles are voiced by black actors who are vocal about black sjw stuff*

    Okay, fuck this shit.

    Which jungle book? (can't believe they made two within a short span of years...

    i liked the 2016 one..


    *googles Jeremy Irons*
    He is playing Ozymandias in Watchmen TV show, is a bit old, no?..Weird, cuz his character isn't gray-haired..also, he is supposed to be ripped, which J.Irons never has been..

    Yeah that one was fine.

    Nothing beats the originals and if I were to go to the movies with kids, I would organize an oldschool Disney movie-marathon instead, but the 2016 movie was watchable.

    Im gonna assume from the lack of answers that Donald Glovers performance is mediocre much like the actor.
    Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes are SP's.

    Looks at their live action Alice in Wonderland remakes
    Looks at their live action Cinderella remake
    Looks at their live action Sleeping Beauty remake
    Looks at their live action Jungle Book remake
    Looks at their live action Beauty and the Beast remake


    Uh huh

    Come on. This is Disney. They only want to bank off of the brand recognition to generate sales. They don't care about the quality of the actual product.

    Yup.

    The whole point of voice acting is that it doesn't matter what you look like or your physical acting ability on camera; all that matter is your voice acting. No one cares that white guy Darth Vader was voiced by a black guy James Earl Jones, or that Leonard Nimoy voiced a black guy in Kingdom Hearts. No one cared because they were great.

    The film earned an additional $269 million internationally, bringing its total tally to $531 million globally.
    Audiences were not deterred by critics’ reviews. In fact, on Rotten Tomatoes the audience score was 89% on Sunday.
