CommentsThe material contains complex and mature low impact themes presented in a context of a musical drama. Negative themes explore being a disgruntled and jealous uncle fighting to be a king, unforbidden land, disobedience, losing a loved one through death, conflicts, mistrust, betrayal, being a ruthless king, brotherhood rivalry, disrespect of royalty, grief, disappointment, deceit, being wrongfully accused of murder, conspiracy to commit murder and manipulation of Scar to Simba. Negative themes are mitigated by positive themes of good prevailing over evil, Simba retaining his rightful place as a king, being a responsible leader, protection of the kingdom, peace, positive father and son relationship, wisdom, family love and support, positive friendships, being disciplined, courageous, brave, reunion and unity. Themes have a low sense of threat and menace. Themes of manipulation, betrayal and death could be are likely to be confusing to much younger children who may have an emotional attachment and identification with the characters. Parental supervision is recommended to contextualize negative and positive themes themes to much younger children.

Gabi Zietsman quote iconIt’s funny how this Lion King replicates almost every word and scene of the original but still fails so dismally. None of the songs were great revisions (except of course Hakuna Matata) and even Mufasa’s death - the scene that holds everything together - didn’t get a single tear from me. And that’s probably the biggest travesty of them all.

RSG
Leon van Nierop quote iconDie nuwe THE LION KING se storie is steeds resepmatig en in die kraal van vermaak-vrate. Onthou, dit kom eintlik tot sy volle reg in 3D, veral in reuse Scene X-Treme-teaters, 4-DX waar die stoele beweeg en skud, en Imax. Jy moet dit op die grootste skerm denkbaar sien met Dolby Atmos-klank, veral vir die Afrika byklanke en musiek.

Tomatometer quote iconWhile it can take pride in its visual achievements,The Lion King is a by-the-numbers retelling that lacks the energy and heart that made the original so beloved -- though for some fans that may just be enough.
