Rawr! The live action version of Disney's 1994 " The Lion King" releases in theaters
July 19,2019 . The premiere kicked off Tuesday night in Hollywood with a star studded evening. On Wednesday I saw a private screening of the film and let's just say I can't wait to go see it again. Director Jon Favreau and executive producer Mario Zvan of Blue Sky Films Africa catalyzed the original film into one unforgettable movie.
If you think I'm going to spoil the film for you trust me I'm not. This review will be short and sweet because I'm literally still speechless that I've seen it already. I felt as if I've waited my whole life just to spend and 1hr and 58minutes in a whole new yet familiar world. The film's cinematography by Caleb Deschanel is absolutely stunning. The soundtrack produced by Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer sets the tone for the film.
