One thing I know from my knowledge is animals can be identified by specific markings, whisker dots, marking on the fur, things like that, now I wonder if they kept this in mind or not, my fear is they didn't but how couldn't they have if they got the fur just so perfect, that I am very impressed with.

In my opinion we will be able to differentiate them, just look at this picture here: Simba and Sarabi's fur are different so probably they all will have similar colors to the original yet close to real.

The trailer itself didn't show any new scenes that weren't in the original movie - so for all we know, it might as well end up being a shot-for-shot remake.

As for me personally, I didn't see anything to be worried about, but at the same time, nothing to be excited over.

While the lighting may be playing tricks, it seems Simba's mane at the end there has more of an Earth-y tone rather than the crimson color of the animated version. I imagine Mufasa's will looking similar. One wonders how Scar will look if a mere red mane (which honestly isn't that far removed from reality, given the orange/reddish tones we see on some lions) is too outlandish for this take.

And still he wasn't already a newborn, his eyes are open. So around 7-10 days old.


Newborn in terms of children is at least their first month so using the term, newborn, is appropriate here. Lion cubs are born blind, and when they open their eyes within the span of a week, they are initially blue-grey before turning into a gold-like color as they get older.

I think this is newsworthy enough to be on the front page.

:playful:

As others have said, the CGI looks pretty breathtaking. Definitely a little bit weird to see these characters as basically live-action, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. As others have mentioned, differentiation between key characters will probably be a minor challenge--I'm interested in seeing how they get around it.

Man, that cast, though.

My hope is that they're using this first look as a pure nostalgia trip to get people aware and interested before showing off the changes and new stuff they've made in later promotional material.

Exactly. Nostalgia is a key marketing tool to lure the widest range of an audience possible to your product. There will be differences, but you don't want to expose too much as it's still too soon.

in 24 hours.

who knows what the number is now.

i’m already seeing the memes on my fb timeline.

People here have been rather civil with their comments on the remake but I have seen plenty of idiotic bs elsewhere that i go to.
Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves back up again.

I hate to be the negative one but damn I’m really not feelin this /~: I hate how drab and dull the colors are. the CoL scene is supposed to be beautiful, joyous, and awe-inspiring but this version looks more sad and eerie to me. I just don’t really see the appeal of hyperrealism at the expense of all the original’s life and color. I do think Rafiki looks pretty neat but baby Simba looks off to me, and not feelin adult Simba as just a regular ole normal realistic looking lion (but we did only get a small glimpse of him, so I don’t wanna judge too soon, and maybe it’ll feel different when we actually get to see him speaking & emoting).

that said I knew from the start I probably wouldn’t be into the visuals of this movie.... I’m just looking forward to the voice cast (namely Eric Andre) and the possibility of the lore/story being expanded upon in some interesting way. so I’ll try to keep being optimistic about that and not get too hung up on the visual side of things..... just a lil hard to hold back the disappointment rn
