The new version of the iconic Disney movie " The Lion King " brings stunning visuals and incredible animations. But does it beat the classic 1994 movie?

Disney released the new version to recreate the iconic story in a much more advanced way, visually speaking. However, despite CGI technology (Computer Generated Imagery: computer generated images), the remake directed by Jon Favreu, who is an expert on the realism of animals thanks to his work on " The Jungle Book " ( 2016), has not pleased many.

When directors Rob Minkoff and Rogers Allers made The Lion King in 1994, it was quite a feat, as it became the favorite story of many generations and remains one of Disney's most important animations to this day.

The music created by the composer of soundtracks, Hans Zimmer, along with songs like "The Cycle of Life" or "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" by Elton John which created an unprecedented emotional experience for thousands of people.

The dialogues also weighed heavily in the original film. The wisdom of Rafiki and the phrases of Mufasa played a very large role in history, as can be confirmed by thousands of people.

The 2019 version of " The Lion King " takes into account most of these factors, but does not quite surpass its predecessor, showing that despite the impressive CGI images, it does not connect in the same way with the public.

Something important about the new film that has confused many people is whether it is really about "live-action", a common term that is handled in social networks and media and refers to real action or live action to refer to works in which the image has been obtained through the direct filming of actors or real elements, that is to say, resorting to traditional filming in the studio or outdoors, unlike animation, which is a technique or set of techniques in which the footage It is obtained by animating pictures.

A live-action involves beings of flesh and blood, be they humans, animals or both, " The Lion King " of 2019 is fully animated.

" The Lion King " in its English version, has the voices of Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner as Timon and Pumbaa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar and James Earl Jones as Mufasa.

Carlos Rivera, Fela Domínguez, Luis Leonardo Suárez, Sergio Carranza, Roberto Pisana and Sebastián Llapur participated in the Spanish version, for the same characters in the previous paragraph.
