The biggest stumbling block is the animation to "live action" transition is not compelling enough for some audiences. Its a hurdle that can stunt it from being $800m+ HUGE. It will still be massive though.

Ok after watching that I'm finally able to pinpoint what about it is so weird and off-putting to me: I can't immediately tell when the animals are speaking. Because they made it so realistic, they don't open their mouths much when speaking so I can't tell where the sound is coming from immediately the way I would with a human being or an animated character (who always have exaggerated mouth movements) and it throws things off. It's even more apparent in the short clip of them singing Hakuna Matata; my brain is accustomed to humans singing, who open their mouths widely, and animated characters doing the same, and yet their lips are barely moving and it feels so weird. Total uncanny valley thing going on.

I think that's partially because that always happens with trailers/tv spots/featurettes. I've had that happen when watching plenty of those for animated films before, and never had an issue in the theater.

Just look at any Toy Story 4 trailer. The voices never seem to match the mouths. But I bet they did in the theater.

This will be a barometer for the popularity feature films and moviegoing have among our entertainment choices.

Shocker: The Beyonce song, and (apparently) the film, are fantastic.

Look out, Endgame (domestic).

Song sucks.

Early "raves" (which mostly focus on the visuals) are all coming from clickbait publication editors who are hoping to not get disinvited to the next Disney premiere.

I am a hater.

I just don't see the excitement that would get this to Endgame levels. The "live action" stigma will still turn off segments of the audience.

$600m+ would be amazing.

This is not coming anywhere close to Endgame.

The Beyoncé song is super forgettable. It makes the new songs in Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast remakes look like standards of the movie soundtrack genre.

Even if its beat for beat a rehash of the cartoon, this will do $700M at least.

If instead it somehow ends short of say, $600M, then that confirms the fragmented entertainment landscape (streaming, cable) has finally done in the major motion picture business.

No reviews yet. Interesting.

Since this was announced I've been negative about it and I'm going down with this ship. I just don't see this being uber huge. Audiences will swallow a lot of crap but this is such a blatant cash in.

True. It's an absolute snoozer.

Opens with a 50 on metacritic. Rough, but Aladdin had a poor score and ended up being great so I’ll still check out The Lion King.

I’m pretty disappointed in the RT score. I guess we’ll see what happens.

The soundtrack is pretty lame. Be Prepared is spoken, not sung. COL, HM, and IJCWTBK all sound identical to the original. Only song worth listening to is CYFTLT. Beyoncé’s voice suits it very well. But her solo song sucks.

At the end of the day I should have considered that the only Favreau directorial effort I actually like/love is Chef.

Aladdin has 57% Audience 94%
This opens with 57% Audience TBD
Maybe this is more critics that are experiencing disney live action fatigue more than anything.

Some reviewers describe it as a near shot-for-shot remake. This may be the major reason that drags the score down.
