They nailed it. Every single second of the Honest Trailer was spot on. However, I was turned off by they sarcastically stated The Lion King was "adapted" from Kimba the White Lion. The plagiarism allegations are never going to go away.

I got two minutes into it before I stopped. Somehow even less funny than their Aladdin 2019 honest trailer.

I have noticed that the honest game trailers, which used to be voiced by jon bailey, aren’t anymore and also seem to have different (worse) writers. While not hitting the same garbage lows of cinemasins, I do think that ht’s just aren’t consistently as funny as they used to be... I thought the endgame ht was funny... Maybe the writing staff is different from trailer to trailer?

Yeah I was a little put off by the Kimba thing as well, not because they mentioned necessarily, because it won’t ever go away like mentioned, but because they used the same thing when they did the ‘94 version.

I know it’s still pretty early to say this, but I really feel as the Simba’s pride remake is quite a lower chance than I really expected. Just because of the monumental hate that people have for this movie.. people who aren’t even really into Frozen are going to go just for the main purpose of taking out TLK2019 as the highest animated film again. It is Disney, and it stuck high in money, but will they really go for it? And if they do, do they think it’s going to strike as high seeing how everyone reacted with 2019?
Personally I feel like the amount of hate this remake is getting is kinda tainting the way TLK is viewed among people, because people are just tired about hearing about the remake at this point which I think is unfortunate how it’s going. Just my thoughts on it.

Monumental hate? It has an audience score on rotten tomatoes of 88 percent after over 75,000 votes. The movie had massive legs at the box office, staying at the top 10 for quite a while.

Its more of a vocal minority that hates it.


The movie also managed to make a the amount it did in spite of having lukewarm box office performance (for a big budget hollywood movie) in China. The gap between Chinese and Japanese numbers for big Hollywood movies is usually pretty big, but with tlk the gap was not that large.

It does have a 53 percent score from critics on rotten tomatoes, but that just means half of the critics who saw it recommend it/liked it and the other didn’t.

Which means audiences generally liked it, and critics were more split.

The movie does have harsh critics. Every movie that makes... 1,655,156,910 ????!!!??? dollars at the global box office is bound to have plenty of them.

But the hate is overstated.

Something I didn’t expect.

TLK was in the top 30 domestic box office this weekend. Made over 50,000. Inching towards 545,000,000 domestic. Over 1,655,000,000 worldwide.

No doubt, the general public is more than willing to take that crap, where diehard tlk fans are more likely to see the issues with it all over the place. The ratings don't make it a good film but the whole nostalgic remakes of classic films is a huge thing right now, so I'd say the likelyhood of a tlk2 remake is pretty likely with the numbers it did in the box office.
