translated from Spanish: «The Lion King»: Disney tech-reinforces the beloved children’s classic

Shortly after the premieres of the live action versions of «Aladdin» and «Dumbo», Disney brings another of its classics back under state-of-the-art technology: «The Lion King». The same story that first reached cinemas in 1994 as an animation, now becomes modernized through photorealism, which turns Simba and company into animals like those living in the African savannah. With Jon Favreau, the same one who directed the live action version of «The Jungle Book» (2016), Disney adapts its classic to internet times and adds factors to attract new audiences, which did not grow with Mufasa’s death as a pain of infanci a.Among those new ingredients is nothing less than Beyoncé, who gave her voice to the lioness Nala in the English version and who contributed a new song, «Spirit», which adds to the recalled soundtrack of the film of ’94 – led by the emotional «Circle of life» by Elton John – which and now it repeats itself with different arrangements. Details that seek to replicate the effect of the animated film, one of the most beloved of the Mickey Mouse house, but that has failed to enchant the whole critics alike.» Turning the elastic and dynamic drawings by hand by Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff for the original 1994 film into realistic animals, «The Lion King» greatly reduced its expression spectrum,» the AP news agency published. Not everyone felt the same way. Variety magazine published: «Favreau reinforces the 1994 classic by focusing its attention on improving the look of the previous film and largely sticking to its direction and script choices.»
