Dog’s Movie House: “The Lion King” Roars With Spectacular Animation!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with a look at Disney’s reimagining of their 1994 classic “The Lion King”
Of the Disney renaissance that began in the late 1980s with “The Little Mermaid” and continued into the 90s, I always found 1994’s “The Lion King” to be somewhat disappointing. The tonal shift from “Hamlet” to “Hakuna Matata” and back again always through me for a loop as did the miscasting of Matthew Broderick as an adult Simba. Imagine my surprise when Jon Favreau’s “live action” update became one of the more enjoyable experiences I’ve had at the theater this summer!
