The Lion King Returns
A Thrilling, Modern Day Revival of Disney Entertainment

With “The Lion King”́ being released in July of 2019, the realistic style of the movie became appealing to me. I always found delight in the classic Disney films that had helped construct my childhood, but the unique style of the remake kept me allured to the screen. The cartoon I had watched and rewatched as a child being so vividly portrayed in front of me made for an overall captivating experience.

The heart-wrenching story behind the film made it that much more impactful being seen so realistically. Simba, a lion cub that idolizes his father ‘s every movement gets himself into a terrible position and is staring death right in the face. Before they could be introduced, his loving father Mufasa rushes in for the rescue. The decision saves his cub Simba’s life, but had cost him his own. The heart-broken cub lives on thanks to this sacrifice, and grows to become an obvious resemblance to his beloved father.

The death of Mufasa is the moment in the film at which I felt I favored the new approach in comparison to the original Disney film. The way the realistic visuals had gripped my interests and emotions had made me happy about my decision to see the movie. I had gone to the theatre not expecting much from Disney. It was going to be so much like the cartoon I‘d seen a million times before that it hardly seemed worth going to the theatre for, or at least that’s what I’d thought. It didn’t take long for me to realize I had been wrong about this though. Even knowing what would happen, the new design offered a beautiful and enticing reminder of the story I had enjoyed so much when I was younger.

Although the movie is following the same story, it produces a fresh new view that really helps to consume the audience. I would recommend this movie to anyone who’s looking for an infatuating emotional ride and an amazing visual experience. I would especially suggest the film to anyone who grew up watching the old one, like myself. Giving the movie a try may lead to a pleasant experience, and I’ll undoubtedly be recommending it.
