    Disney are releasing too many live action remakes at once and it’s making them less special, back when Beauty and the Beast came out in 2017 there was more of a hype because it had been a year since Jungle Book had been released. We’ve already had 3/4 this year? I’m loosing track!

    The range of Jon Favreau’s body of work is just incredible. I mean from writing “Elf” to essentially starting the MCU with “Iron Man” to writing/directing/starring in “Chef” and now directing the “Jungle Book” & “Lion King” live action remakes.

    ok… so I was rolling a joint, cause what else are you doing watching youtube…? but, I looked up and saw a Zebra and was like, “oh check out the Zebra” and then, “the circle of life” music came in and I was like, “wtf, that’s just a zebra, Zebra’s are too stupid to be able to talk” and I just began laughing out loud… I really don’t think I can watch this because, Lion King is an animation… like, the musical was cool, but, not sure I can see this and not be the subject of reporting for laughing throughout this version
