Rumours persist that Disney intend to film all the old school animated movies as live-action remakes. If a Lion King remake is green lighted, here is how I think they should proceed:

1. Make an adaptation of the musical- with "The Madness of King Scar" intact. That song, along with the "One By One" sequence, gives us a touch more detail as to why the Pride Lands went to hell during Scar's time as king. The original movie is kind of like "Fuck you, The Pride Lands are falling because Scar is the bad guy!" whereas the MUSICAL establishes the fact that the hyenas are destroying the Pride Lands.

2. Utilise "He Lives In You". I can see Mufasa singing that.

3. Seeing the animal's faces move is a little bit alienating. It's like watching the dogs talk in Snow Buddies. Maybe their lines could be like an inner monologue or something. You know like the Snake from Conan The Barbarian or Wishbone from Wishbone.

4. DO NOT MAKE THIS CGI OK! THAT WOULD SUCK! IT WOULD BE A SLAP IN THE FACE TO FANS EVERYWHERE!

The Lion King remains to this day my favourite animated movie. It has spawned two sequels and a Broadway musical, among other things. However, as it has happened so often in the past with a lot of films, the sequel is a path to the dark side.

Whereas darker and edgier sequels like The Empire Strikes Back and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets have worked and done their predecessors justice, The Lion King 2 fails miserably.

THE GOOD:

It is refreshingly different to see a Disney sequel that picks up immediately after the events of the first film.

It is also refreshingly different to see a Disney sequel that doesn't come out six decades after the original.

"He Lives In You" is a great song... and so is "Upendi". Too bad the rest of the songs had to be so depressing...

Rafiki the Matchmaker? Now that was a subplot with great potential. Unfortunately, we have to spend a lot of the film with a teenage lion voiced by that lame-boy Andy Dick...

1. She does not listen to her parents when they tell her that the outlands are dangerous and that she should never go there, however she gets angry when her father doesn't trust her. How will he trust you if you keep being disobedient?

2. The fact that she knows nothing about self defence and sucks as a fighter (I assume) doesn't stop her from going to the outlands. (I'm talking about the teenager Kiara who "can" think logically). Why would you go to a dangerous place when you can't protect yourself in the first place? Pretty much everyone can outmatch her.

3. After the ambush, when Simba was badly injured and was lying on Pride Rock the only thing she cared about was Kovu "Daddy, it can't be true". This is not about Kovu.. It's about your father's life who barely made it out of there alive so stop being so selfish and get your facts straight.

4. She knew Kovu for barely two days. You can't love him and he can't love you. "He loves me, for me!". No. No one can trust someone after only two days that much! How can she be so naive?
