Fantastic. Just like watching Disney and National Geographic at the same time. Very pleasant to watch. Everything is synchronized and believable. Nice dialogues. Although the plot is the same old but the presentation is totally different. Highly recommended.

Saw the original animated move when it first came out on VHS. I was so impressed I watched it a couple of times with our kids. Then in my 60's saw it on stage a couple times and liked it a lot. We got the DVD yesterday and watched it and it was another wonderful experiance. The color and sound was fantastic. It was another way to experiance a lovely story, the circle of life created by Disney.

The animation: breathtakingly beautiful and detailed. The story: breathlessly copied from the original hand-drawn version (plus a couple of comical Easter eggs from other Disney animated movies). The Biblical references mentioned by the reviewer below are there but not as obvious (or as numerous) as those to Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Excellent movie, the theme is familiar and basically the same as the original but the production itself is amazing....we kept on oohing and aahing all through it, it was so real....the theme of exile, vindication, and redemption, and installation to kingship and rule of the anointed king, resulting in new creation and the overcoming of corruption and blight on the land - is very biblical and true to the human condition when God is involved....the circle of life is a metaphor for God's healing rule exercised through his anointed king....

The Lion King (2019) was an amazing film! I know that many people were disappointed by the creation of this film and thought that a classic should not have been recreated, however, I thought it was very fun to watch. The CGI was insanely great, and I thought that the voice actors suited the characters very well. For example, Seth Rogan was a great fit for the warthog because his voice and laugh suited the animal so well! The movie had some great songs in it, and it was cool to see how the filmmakers presented this classic in 2019! Overall, I really enjoyed the film! Rating: 4/5 @Montgomery of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Thanks to latest CGI innovations, this remake appears to be filmed with real animals vs the hand-drawn animated 1994 original. Love the new pair of Timon and Pumbaa (Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen.) For the rest of the film, prefer the sound track and story line from the original version.

The CGI for this Lion King movie is amazing and it looks like a real life animal movie which the animals look so real. I didn't watch this CGI movie in theater but watched the DVD after it had been released. When I heard the songs while watching the movie, it brought back my childhood memories for watching the Lion King cartoon version 25th years ago in theater with my mom. All the songs in the movie are astonishing and magical which give you a motivation to do sing-along while watching the movie which is very entertaining and fun. The story lines for both movies are the same, both CGI version and original cartoon version are great but I like this CGI version better .

Over 100 quotes in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors; this exchange is my favorite:

Hyena: Looks like we'll be having pig for dinner. Plump and chubby.
Pumbaa: Chubby? Did he just call me chubby?
Timon: Uh-oh.
Pumbaa: It sounded a lot like he just said "chubby". Which would be a mistake because... I will not be made to feel ashamed of who I am.
Timon: Oh, boy.
Pumbaa: I may run from hyenas... but I will always fight a bully

Pumbaa: Hey, Timon, ever wonder what those sparkly dots are up there?

Timon: Pumbaa, I don't wonder; I know.

Pumbaa: Oh. What are they?

Timon: They're fireflies. Fireflies that, uh... got stuck up on that big bluish-black thing.

Pumbaa: Oh, gee. I always thought they were balls of gas burning billions of miles away.

Timon: Pumbaa, with you, everything's gas.

Eat my buddy Pumbaa here because he is a treat
Come on down and dine - On this tasty swine - All you have to do is get in line
Aaaare you achin' (Yup, yup, yup)

Heeee's a big pig (Yup, yup)
You could be a big pig too. Hoy!"
- Timon and Pumbaa
