The Lion King

I love Jon Favreau, and his live action remake of the Jungle Book. The Jungle Book is my favorite animated Disney film, and the only one i owned on DVD until recently. I had found a copy of Lion King for a buck so picked it up. It had been a decade or so since i had last seen it but highly enjoyed it. glad i rewatched it prior to Favreau's new "live action" remake. It starts off pretty well but then just becomes sort of bland, the songs didn't really click in this version either. The Scar/Hyena takeover scene was pretty cool but ultimately the ending felt anti climatic. It's enjoyable, but coming off of Jungle Book, it truly lacks.
