The Lion King

In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion wakes tonight

Releasing on July 19, this is one of Disney's most anticipated films of the year.

While The Lion King remake cannot top the original, the realistic portrayal and brilliant visuals in the new live-action film promise to bring the African wilderness to life as Simba must win back the throne from his evil uncle Scar and avenge the murder of his father, Mufasa.

Why are we looking forward to this movie?

My personal biases aside, what has me most excited about The Lion King is the visual clarity this film will provide. The trailer already showed us what to expect from the animation. Surely, Mufasa's death in high definition will be even more painful to watch!
