watch his filmography to get a taste of what he is like. Jon Favreau was more known for making blockbusters.... crowd pleaser type stuff. Barry Jenkins is a more experimental, artsy, indie director. The last time they got one of those for a Disney remake we got Petes Dragon which I feel is still the best of the Disney remakes.

I will be gradually be watching his filmography.

I did watch Moonlight.

Fascinating movie. Very subdued.... in the acting, color palette and music, though it felt like there was more to the music in the last 30 minutes and the color palette gradually got more and more colorful but in a realistic way. The characters all acted very naturally. A drama with little drama and what drama was there didn't feel overacted.

You could feel Chirons anger and frustration and sadness throughout the movie so when a pivotal scene happens after another pivotal scene it felt like..... he was definitely at a breaking point.

I am curious to see what Barry Jenkins can do with The Lion King. He is a verydifferent film maker from Jon Favreau I can tell.

I watched "If Beale Street Could Talk" last year, and it was one of the best films of 2019. It was romantic but a contemporary tale about young love and how the American justice system treats young black men. It had an atmosphere of despair, but it ended with a sense of optimism. That said, I have no idea what Barry Jenkins could bring to the table concerning the prequel.
