This is going to make me sound extremely cynical, but since it meant a lot of why I enjoy The Lion King so much:

Oh, how much do I hope that they don't ruin the songs/score. I will allow Disney to include more material, since the remake will most likely be longer than the 87 minutes that the original movie is, but I also see it as way too easy to ruin something that was great in the movie in the goal of "remaking" the movie for a modern audience.

^that is very likely to happen, since they will probably go for the modern audience, and modern/new will definitely not mean better (i deal with technics at work, believe me, new is NOT better) Personally i will keep my expectations low and enjoy that there will be something to enjoy.

I've said this before and I'll say it again, I hope we get a look at Mufasa and Scar when they were younger in this new film. Even if it's only a small amount of material, I would still be so happy.

Getting to see more of Scar's reign over the Pridelands sounds like a great idea as well.

I'm all for using the original songs & score in the new film so long as they don't butcher it and completely change them, kind of like a few songs in The Jungle Book. (I didn't like the new variations of Bare Necessities and I Wanna Be Like You.)

i hope they won't mutilate the songs.. for the rest, this would be a great oppurtunity to give mheetu a chance! every extra lion would be welcome. and more lines for good ol' Sarafina would be nice.

You know, I originally wanted the old cast back, but I think I like this idea a little bit better. I'm always baffled when Hollywood films make most of the cast have American and/or English accents even when the characters are of a different ethnicity... It doesn't really make sense whatsoever, even if I LOVE the original TLK cast to bits.

The characters are not human so it's easier to accept. Also, tlk was a movie from the 90's. Aladdin was voiced by a white dude from Full House. Most just didn't care or know about voice actors like we do today.

To be fair, tlk still has more black actors than most major hollywood films.

New voice cast will breathe some new life into the characters, so I'm all for it. It's a little unlikely they'll be better than the original cast, but it's Disney, they ain't gonna cheap out here. A new cast will roughly be on par with the originals, while offering their unique take on each character.

A new score will be amazing. Maybe keep the leitmotifs and spirit of Zimmer's original score, add in more African influences, and the new composer's style will shine through in the new bits and pieces. Sounds solid.

I'd love to see some songs from the musical make it in. "They Live in You", "Shadowland", and "Endless Night" would be excellent choices. If they want to keep Scar making advances towards Nala out of the film, they could easily lead into Shadowland by showing the devastation Scar has brought to the Pridelands, and the lionesses all decide someone should go and look for help. Nala could volunteer, giving her a pretty awesome little character moment.

I agree- I think it'd be amazing if the actors were from the same place the movie was set.

I REALLY want to see more of Scar's reign.

I also hope they don't put the songs in, because I didn't like the way that were handled in The Jungle Book

Yeah they were handled really poorly in the jungle book.
