  • “The Lion King” remake brought the beloved 1994 animated classic into 2019 with a mix of CGI animation and live-action filming techniques. We talked to Elliot Newman of MPC Film about creating fur, building environments, and creating characters like Rafiki and Scar, as well as how cast members like Donald Glover, Billy Eichner, and Seth Rogen got to perform in an incredibly unique set-up.

    This not an animal abuse, they recorded it with hidden camera while the story is actually happening.

    Looks like a transgender render! A 2D drawing with a penis looks odd, but when it's this realistic, why can't they just add a little tuft of fur for the testis and penis!

    If I wanted to watch real-looking emotionless animals, I would rather watch an Animal Planet documentary. This was just an inferior shameless cash grab of the 1994 animated masterpiece.

    This is why people should appreciate this movie more. Because the creator did so much to make it look realistic and we should applaud for them for doing that, they did a very amazing job with this movie

    0:21 tells you exactly why the movie wasn't good. Hyperrealism. They removed all suspension of disbelief, going so realistic, the lions have nothing artistic about them. Real lions actually look like they have personality. Use their example of Scar. Scar was the furthest from reality, but still worked. Push reality, its CGI - you can do anything.
