    I know everyone has different opinions, but the full movie isn't out yet and almost no one is willing to give it a chance. I mean come on, your judging it based on the trailer and because it's live action. When Kingdom hearts 3 opening theme song came out in the trailer, some people judge it and the full song hadn't come out at time, rather want a remix of the ending theme. But when it did came out, people all of sudden change their minds. Once the whole movie come out, what are you going to say about ...

    Actually, you missed THE MOST IMPORTANT reason why Disney has been remaking its animated classic into live-action films. Disney was actually FORCED by Warner Brothers and other Hollywood studios into remaking its animated classics into live-action. Warner Bros and other studios were planning to remake all the Disney animation into live-action films, BEFORE Disney had thought about it. Those other studios wanted to get "free rides" out of the nostalgia and popularity of Disney's classic ani...

    The thing is, CGI ages poorly. Animation is timeless.

    It's more that realism ages poorly. This applies to both CGI and video game graphics. When something is trying to look realistic it'll look worse as it becomes more dated. This doesn't really happen if it's more cartoony or stylised.

    +JiNzX115 yeah I think cgi of the movie industy is improving as well look at the animals in the lion king trailer

    Disney is going through it’s mid-life crisis

    Lol yup

    No one ever points out the REAL reason these Disney remakes suck. It's not the mediocre singing. It's not the CGI replacing 2d animation. Neither of those "issues" could single-handedly break a great movie. The REAL problem with these remakes is that they add ZERO new or interesting layers to what they're based on. It's basically all beat-for-beat and it's soulless because of it.

  • Sanguiluna  (Mar 1, 2019))

    That’s one of the reasons I liked Maleficent and Christopher Robin: they actually do something new with the source material instead of just rehashing the old story.

    Not to advocate for the Disney remakes, but the new Cinderella version showed us Cinderella's parents.

  • EveryPixelCounts  (Feb 22, 2019))

    I'm tired of remakes and sequels...we need a new studio to emerge and bring along new ideas

  • Kevin Marshall  (3 days ago))

    ​+xxxpyrosxxx CGI is actually way more expensive than animation. The average cost of a single shot of CGI is $800,000, while it's only about $3,000 to $50,000 for a minute of animation.

    At this rate vin deasel will have a hair transplant and be driving a tesla in fast 15 😏

    I wish Disney would remake their underrated/forgotten movies instead like Black Cauldron, Treasure Planet, or Atlantis. They all have mostly human characters so adapting them in photorealistic/live-action movies would go a lot smoother and look a lot better.

  • EpicJason X9000  (2 days ago))

    +GodBeastX I already knew about those books. I haven't read them, but the movie is fine as it is. which is the point of the argument. most movies should be able to stand out on their own since most adaptations tend to change things, and not every adaptation is going to be 100% faithful to the original books. which is why the movie itself has to at the very least be entertaining, have decently written characters, and especially from a business perspective, take some risks. Disney doing a darker story wi...

    +EpicJason X9000 Very good book series, called Chronicles of Prydain. The horned king was actually dead in the Book of Three which predated the black cauldron book.

    They won't stop because Money. Disney have way too many gullible fans.

  • cumquatrct3  (Mar 5, 2019))

    +Dark Spyro Anyone who paid to see one of these outings effectively asked for another one, so given they're turning a profit I'd say you're wrong about that!

  • Retro Mammoth  (Mar 1, 2019))

    More like dumb bored kids and dumb parents who will take them to see anything if they shut up for 2 hours. Its like a daycare service only the dumb parent has to go to.

  • Dean. Lambros  (Feb 21, 2019))

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who agrees with this. I've been telling my friends this forever. Disney needs to pour their monies into what they do best: animations. This live action is getting old. Aladdin, Dumbo, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Mulan. This is too much for me. Name one ANIMATED movie that Disney is working on that ISN'T A SEQUEL. NAME ONE!

    Anime Huntress I love having these convos with my fellow geeks lol 😂 😘✌️

  • Anime Huntress  (2 days ago))

    +carmen alexis How to Train Your Dragon is Dreamworks, did you really think Disney was going to take that success lying down? Frankly Dreamworks beats out Disney for me. They don't release a huge movie or animations every year... excepting some direct to video sequels, but when they do come out with something its big helping of unique and original with a slice of amazing and a side of unbelievable. Even some of there direct to video release are just stunning.

    +Pepe Silvia I know, at first I didn't believe my friend about it so, I flew out to India myself and behold Shere khan uses vocal noises and tree markings to communicate with other tigers.

    Wait, you're telling me they don't do this in real life?Mind blown.
