Those new posters are great, I especially love young simba and nala.

I don’t get the hate these designs are getting, none of these are nearly as bad the live sonic the hedgehog design.

The designs are fine, although I will say that it's a bit difficult to tell Nala and Sarabi apart at first glance since they look alike.The problem is that they won't be as expressive as they were in the original film.

I actually really like the designs; feels like the first time I'm really getting a sense of personality from each character, cub Nala and Sarabi in particular. They look like they'll be amply facially expressive enough to be believable. Sarabi and adult Nala are gonna be hard to tell apart by their faces, especially since they didn't differentiate the eye colors. That said, in the new TV spot (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz-kufoFris) that was released today -- today was a real marketing blitz; funny how we were literally just talking about lack of promotion -- Sarabi has spots on her forelimbs and a scar of some sort on her left shoulder, so that seems to be the easiest way to visually distinguish the two when they're onscreen together and not talking.

I'm a bit worried that they won't do as much with the hyenas as I was hoping, if the lack of any of them getting character posters is indicative of anything.

Also, I got weirdly (and unreasonably) excited just now noticing the added ostriches fanning their feathers in the "Circle of Life" crowd, as well as the birds -- bee-eaters maybe?; they look green -- flying above the crowd in that panning shot from the vantage point of Rafiki and Simba. I really love looking at the environments and seeing how they're populating the Pride Lands, and the details keep changing for the better with every new advertisement. The biologist in me is geeking the heck out.

P.S. -- Interesting behind-the-scenes video by one of the journalists who got to visit the set and speak to Favreau late 2017: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIjicwrpgNM It's probably the clearest explanation of the process for the VR filmmaking going on here, and to boot it appears that there'll be some Lion Guard references in the new movie. (Specifically in this case, they named the gorge Embamba Canyon, which is a different(?) region in the actual show, but still, it's a nice little bit of world-building that shows that the production crew is actively aware of material outside of the original film.)

JD McCrary sounds great as cub Simba. I can't wait until he slays "I Just Can't Wait to be King". Also, I have to say I like that shot of cub Simba walking depressed in the open desert.

My 2019 TLK remake notes...

Lots to read her so read on your own time, and please read every word, don’t be lazy on me people, if you don’t like to read then you shouldn’t be on this page cause this page requires reading.

So, after reading through everything I could on this remake. Here is what to take from the notes that I took. I just LOVE how the new voice actors are mostly all black and all carry that black African culture in their blood and throughout their acting careers, even with films that I am familiar with and am a fan of, for example, Avengers. We already know that this film will not be shot for shot or word for word, there are obviously going to be some differences. For example, in a video about the VR work they say that the gorge is now called Embamba Canyon. They say Mufasa will stay true to his original, so we may not see much change there other then his real-life version looks. In case you didn’t know, this remake will be 2 hours long, and the reason for this is, they say something about expanding on Simba’s growth. What really took me by surprise is that this remake was filmed in using all VR (virtual Reality) and how they were explaining how they did it, its still confusing me, and I’m very curious as to how we will be able to even experience this remake in VR when it comes out, I can only imagine. God it just sickens me when it comes to false information that has been so easily twisted on social media, and that’s why I don’t watch the news, the reason I’m saying this is because some one lied about how they were not going to have Be Prepared in the film, well IT IS going to be in the film, so Hakuna Matata Scar worshipers. But this just goes to show DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR! It’s easy to fall for, we all make that sad mistake too many times. Now one very interesting thing they were saying about this new version of Scar is, this version says that the fates and gods have over-passed Scars fate, Gods???? Fates? What would they mean by this? What could the gods be? Could they be referring to The Great Kings of the Past?? I would sure hope so, but we shall see how this plays out when we see it. Now they are also saying that Hakuna Matata is not exactly a good philosophy of our time, I really don’t know what they mean by that, any ideas? Now I bought the Novelization version, and I plan on starting to read it before I go see it. And those who have already read the film novel PLEASE NO SPOILERS! What really brings me to tears of joy for this remake is, the lion conservation contribute project, it is PERFECT to for them to do this, how could they NOT help Lions out with the film like Disneynature. And this conservation thing is what I’m all about and it really brings tears to my eyes for their dedication to helping the lion species, it’s such a blessing. Get this they already put in 13 MILLION $$$ into the conservation project. Now here is one of the problems I’m noticing already, the merchandise design, I had bought some party decorations just to get a close look at the characters design and I’m not liking what I’m seeing. The merchandise character design does not look accurate according to the film characters, I cant tell who is who in this design but who ever is scar there is not Scar on Scar as in no scar on the eye, can someone PLEASE get me information on who is behind this design, (nicely)I AM ASKING SOMEONE TO BRING ME ANY INFORMATION ON THIS DESIGN PLEASE I WANT TO KNOW!. Disney has said when it comes to these animated films color is the key to expressing the emotion in these films that we all love, but when it comes to these live action remakes, you have to expect there isn’t going to be as much color for this realistic look, consider it like an adult version. And in Africa everything is going to be a natural raw color of nature, browns tans, golds, and yellows, that’s the colors of the natural Africa in real life, and if you learn to embrace the real spirit and color of Africa you will begin to see and understand why, and again I say this as someone who really studies a lot of nature in school. And to those who are being crybabies about these remakes, Disney noted in a magazine that I read, that and I quote “Disney allows fans of the originals to experience the familiar in an entirely new way. Any questions concerns, opinions and comments, [Please don’t hesitate to share with comments below or simply message me and we can chat about it. I’m so very excited.

Something is happening on the Disney channel this Sunday involving the young simba and nala actors.

its either

-Some sort of clip of young simba and nala talking.

-A clip of I just cant wait to be king.

-Full version of I just cant wait to be king.

Most likely the first option as John Oliver was not mentioned but you never know.

I think it's just the two of them performing a live version of the song; the promotional stuff for it is describing it as a performance: https://www.facebook.com/radiodisney/ph ... =3&theater

Tickets are supposedly going on sale on Monday, so there's rumblings of one more big trailer to coincide with and announce said ticket sales. That seems to be the case with how Disney's been marketing their big movies as of the last year or two.

Also a little bit about the hyenas from Favreau: https://www.digitalspy.com/movies/a2803 ... 6PeeQgec5E

And finally, the MPAA has officially rated the film PG, for "sequences of violence and peril, and some thematic elements".

New TV spot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_ZNepoCsPQ

What I find most interesting about this one is the scene at 0:22 -- it's very reminiscent of a scene in the old, cut version of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight". This: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIw3QHWtYtA and the part I'm referring to starts at 2:40.

I always did love Simba's original line from that song: "Never trust the future, never miss the past. If you live for the shining moment, the moment may just last." I doubt they'll change any lyrics buuut if they did include that I wouldn't really mind.
