I don't get people complaining about these Disney live-action remakes.
But they are pointless. The only one that really needs a remake is Dumbo due to its racist scenes. And honestly? Dumbo doesn't have to be LA, it can be CGI animation.but I don't shout at the clouds and say "THIS IS POINTLESS!". If you really want these movies to stop then stop watching them in the cinema.
That's fine. But there are reasons why people are upset/ sick of tired of this "trend". Though Beauty and the Beast made bank, and Aladdin, Lion King will too, so there's no stopping this Disney LA train for a very long time.Personally, this looks good. Jon Favreau directed The Jungle Book and I actually preferred that over the animated version.
It looks like this film will rely more on animalistic behavior and micro expressions to convey its characters; there was a little ear twitch that Scar did in his first shot that caught my eye. I hope to see some more of these little details throughout the film.The CGI is fine, though the faces can't really capture emotional reactions like the animated films.
Artistic choice, probably; it looks like they're envisioning a different interpretation of Scar's character, to which there's nothing inherently wrong with that. Chiwetel's a good actor anyways, so hopefully his talent will carry into his voice acting.I have a problem with how they're portraying villains in these live action remakes. Jafar doesn't look nor sound exactly like the animated version, nor does this Scar, even though there are lions with black manes, and Twitter is plastered with them all over. Like, I get the physical design decisions, but at least call the original voice-actors for the villains to do a voice-over.
Like if they do live-action Hercules, which I doubt, James Wood not being Hades would be hysterical.
