The premiere of the Lion King happened and according to early reviews from critics and fans, it’s a hit. A lot of people praised the CGI, saying it was a game changer, while others praised the movie for remaining true to the original.
With early word of mouth being great, I can see it opening at 180 million over the July 19-21st weekend. As for me, I have zero interest in seeing this movie. If I want to see the Lion King, I will watch the original. End of story.
