So, #TheLionKing has stunning visual effects/animation, but it's in service of a pointless retread that seems to exist mostly to show you how they got it right the first time. It's as over-written as ALADDIN but without the charismatic humans to entertain you. Lions can't act. pic.twitter.com/j607ciXEB9

The new Dora movie has higher review scores than the CGI lion king movie and this is further proof as to why making CGI lion king was pointless and a waste of time. 😂

Went and watched the new Lion King today, absolutely brilliant and super impressive.
Idk how people can give it bad reviews.

The animation of Aslan in this was better than in the new Lion King https://t.co/cUM1sWq2hd
