It won't matter though, Lion King remake will surely sit atop the throne and pounce on the box office. Who knows how much this shit is going to rake in considering not only does it have the Disney machine and the allure of nostalgia behind it for a group that is now having families, but this cast is loaded with people that have legions of annoyingly loyal fans.
Let's wait for the movie to come out before we call it shit. Some Disney live-remakes have been good.

If they go photorealism for the Mufasa death that is gonna be gruesome given the height of his fall. There will be lots of blood, bones piercing out of skin and all around gore.

They're not going to do that so while they're seemingly staying very close to the animated version, I bet the death scene will be different.

Eh? He's using his normal accent.

You’re right, I misspoke on the accent, I still find Jeremy Irons voice more menacing though.

Chiwetel Ejiofor sounds bored while reading his lines.
