‘The Lion King’ vs. ‘The Lion King’: Which One is the Best?

Disney has definitely been on the movie remake kick lately, redoing a lot of animated movies that are childhood favorites of so many people. So, it’s understandable that it gets heated when you start asking if people like the new remakes, or if they like them as much as the original animated version that came out when they were a kid.

One of the biggest remakes this year is The Lion King. I don’t know about you, but the original animated version was an absolute favorite movie of mine when I was younger. I can’t even imagine how much I must have drove my parents insane when I watched it every single day.

The Lion King (1994) vs. The Lion King (2019)

The new Lion King is probably one of the most beautiful movies that came out this year so far. Looking at stills from the movie, it would probably be easy to mistake it as a nature documentary filmed in HD. But even still, some have said that it lost some of the original movie’s warmth that was achieved by animators. It’s also hard to ignore the disconnect between a hyperrealistic lion and the singing voice of Beyoncé.

All in all, I think the new version is a pretty successful remake, but I don’t know how it really stacks up against the original version of The Lion King.

If you had to choose, which version of the movie is the best?
