In Africa, the lion cub Simba is the pride and joy of his parents King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi. Mufasa prepares Simba to be the next king of the jungle. However, the naive Simba believes in his envious uncle Scar that wants to kill Mufasa and Simba to become the next king. He lures Simba and his friend Nala to go to a forbidden place and they are attacked by hyenas but they are rescued by Mufasa. Then Scar plots another scheme to kill Mufasa and Simba but the cub escapes alive and leaves the kingdom believing he was responsible for the death of his father. Now Scar becomes the king supported by the evil hyenas while Simba grows in a distant land. Sometime later, Nala meets Simba and tells that the kingdom has become a creepy wasteland. What will Simba do?Written by

In the Icelandic dub, the actor who here voices adult Simba, Þorvaldur D. Kristjánsson, voiced young Simba in the original. Similarly, the actor who voiced Scar in the original returns for this version, whereas sadly, the actor who originally voiced Mufasa in the Icelandic dub (the only returning voice in the American cast) has since passed away and had to be replaced.

Microphone peaking can be heard during vocals at several points. Examples include the end of "one and all" in "The Circle of Life" and the start of Simba's "All of this?" in the "everything the light touches" scene. See more »
Life's - not fair - is it, my little friend? While some are born to feast - others spend their lives in the dark... begging for scraps. The way I see it, you and I are exactly the same, we both want to find a way out.

The Disney logo has a hand-drawn animated design and resembles the 1960s Disney logo, the same design used in Jon Favreau's previous Disney film The Jungle Book (2016). See more »
Well...the visual effects are groundbreaking but it lacks heart and flare - and feels soulless compared to the original. Donald Glover and Beyoncé felt like miscasts - it feels like they're reading lines from a sheet. See this remake for the visual effects; but go back and watch the original animated masterpiece in all its glory.
