LTTP, but here's a bit more news: Beyonce is in final talks to both play Nala and provide the score.

I know JWFan will have a measured, calm response to this.  But for me, this project is so fucking pointless and braindead to begin with I'd be ok if a new Beyonce album is the big takeaway.

I don't understand the existence of this movie.

I do. Its existence is money.

The route it seems they are going to take is a shot-for-shot remake. Not that keen on the idea, TBH.

So this is a shot-for-shot animated CGI remake of The Lion King.

I have no words.

The Circle of Life sequence shown at D23 was shot-for-shot according to those who saw it. It is of course possible that it won't entirely be shot-for-shot, but the fact that such a crucial sequence was is telling.
