It’s good to be Donald Glover. Coming off multiple awards for his show Atlanta, he’s about to play Lando in the Han Solo movie and now he’s joining another major Disney production. Jon Favreau just cast him as Simba in the live-action version of The Lion King.
Now we know when to expect Marvel’s Inhumans TV show. Brad Peyton talks bringing Rampage to the big screen. Detective Pikachu has found its director. Plus, tons of new images from Rogue One, a glimpse at Westworld’s season finale, and Sense8 might be back even sooner than you expected. Spoilers now!
Deborah Snyder promises that Wonder Woman will be tonally different to past DC movies. One Marvel comics character we expected in Doctor Strange won’t be appearing just yet. Plus, new looks at Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Dirk Gently. To me, my Spoilers!
Disney’s putting a “reimagining” of The Lion King in the hands of Jon Favreau, following his version of The Jungle Book raking in piles and piles of money. This trend of Disney remaking its own hits forever and ever is great. A live-action Frozen movie has to be coming soon, right?
So far for Senior Week, we’ve already well established that I’m a freak. Cold Han Solo, waiting in lines for hours, but this is where I go over the edge. The fact that, as a compulsive poster collector, I have more posters in my flat file than I have on my walls. So I figured it was time to give some of those posters…
Video editor Ryan Shukis has re-edited a bunch of Disney movies to create the trailers that would market Disney animated films to grown-ups. His latest is The Lion King, which takes on a much more heartwarming tone than in the original trailer.
Sure, the heroes in Disney movies are supposed to embody desirable traits: bravery, kindness, a sense of adventure. But sometimes, it's the villains who have the most to teach us about the world — in their successes and their failures, too.
If you don't count Pixar movies (and I don't), the best Disney movie as far as I'm concerned is The Lion King. It's not even close. But even though I've seen it so many times, there are many more fun facts that I had no idea about: like how Mufasa's roar was made from a bear, a tiger and a F-16. Here's more.
"The Madness of King Scar" is a song that was based on a scene cut from the original Lion King movie that ultimately made it into the stage musical. One animator took the disturbing Scar and Nala portion of the song and imagined how it might have looked in the animated movie.
Classic movies have been remade with nothing but stock footage thanks to this video from stock footage company Dissolve. Each "movie" is introduced with a hint, but not the actual title for guessing purposes. I don't want to brag but *pulls imaginary suspenders* I got them all.
Sure, we watch Disney villains commit some terrible atrocities over the course of their films, but we tend to be a bit more forgiving when we remember the dead. These obituaries recall the lives of villains from a more sympathetic perspective.
All was quiet on the arid plains of Africa when, suddenly, hundreds of animals rushed out of hiding and in a lumbering stampede ran towards Pride Rock, the highest point on the Serengeti.
Almost 20 years after The Lion King pounced into our hearts as a tear-jerking classic, Disney is bringing the pride back in an...interesting way. A new animated series aimed at preschoolers, Lion Guard, will air on Disney Junior and the Disney Channel starting November 2015. It will feature Kion, Simba's son,…
We're fans of Honest Trailers because they cut through all the bullshit from every Hollywood blockbuster there is. No movie is untouchable—including The Lion King. Like so many (all?) of Disney movies, it is so full of wrong. Their versions of the movie songs are especially hilarious. Enjoy!
This year marks that 20th anniversary of Disney's The Lion King. In celebration, Disney is rereleasing the Lion King soundtrack, which has 30 minutes of new music. That's right 30 minutes of new animal songs! The album can be preordered here.
Disney's Lion King movie remade entirely with BABY KITTIES. We did not think it was possible for animated cats to get any cuter. It is.
Lannister lions Tywin, Cersei, Jaime, and Tyrion get made over as actual lions in Disney style. They just can't wait to be the power behind the Iron Throne.
In addition to voicing Fred from Scooby Doo, Abu from Aladdin, Nibbler from Futurama, Megatron from Transformers, and about a zillion other animated characters, veteran voice actor Frank Welker provided sundry big cat snarls for The Lion King simply by yelling into a garbage can. And here's more of Welker on the job.
How do you capture the magic of Disney's animated features without using any Disney illustrations? Graphic designer Rowan Stocks Moore has created a clever set of alternative posters depicting cartoon classics that are beautiful in their own right.
