DisneyDaily’s Top 10 Animated Films: 4/10 The Lion King

“I wasn’t surprised when Beyonce’ was cast as Nala. The only problem I have is she took away the opportunity from other minority girls. Disney went through the Pacific Islands looking for Moana why not make an international effort for The Lion King?”

I’m in a stage combat course after school, and for our final, we’re choreographing and staging a sword fight in pairs. I almost quit the class because my partner didn’t think the music from the end fight scene in The Lion King was ‘cool enough’. Jerk.

“I’m rolling my eyes at some of the celebrity cast they announced for the live action Lion King. It feels more like a gimmick than anything, like “in case the film under-performs, at least people will watch it to hear their favorite actor/singer."”
