      The movie is utter garbage, it’s lion king animated without emotion, songs shortened or removed and bad casting. Donald Glover and Beyoncé are honestly the two worst voices in the movie.

                                                        I'm surprised that Hollywood did a movie like this at this time and Simba is not a transgender

                                                          That song with Beyonce is the worst remake ever. They really trashed that song

                                                            Literally the definition of soulless. If you were to turn off the audio, it would look like a bunch of animals just walking around. There's no life breathed into this, there's nothing original (animation wise, I understand it's a remake), no one took any liberties. It's safe, bland, and boring

ABC gave this woman an exclusive interview for being nala for probably 10 minutes 🤣💀🤣. Don’t see Beyoncé doin press 😒 I knooooo they didn’t change up the movie adding parts for y’all beloved 🤣💀🤣💀🤣
