SWITCH: 'THE LION KING' TRAILER
Simba idolises his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother - and former heir to the throne - has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

THE LION KING
A catastrophic and soulless remake of a Disney classic
Rendered thunderously dull, lacking in any tension or complex characterisation, this film makes it abundantly clear that Disney has no interest in making great cinema or honouring its own legacy.
