Mufasa’s brother Scar (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is the sole malcontent, and his feelings run deep enough to conspire with a group of hyenas to kill the king. Once Mufasa is out of the way, Scar convinces Simba that his father’s death was his own fault, and sends the young cub into exile.Nala (voice of Beyoncé Knowles-Carter) and Simba (voice of Donald Glover) in “The Lion King.”

All of the familiar story beats are there, as well as beloved characters like Simba’s outcast friends — the warthog Pumbaa (Seth Rogen) and an excitable meerkat named Timon (Billy Eichner). Simba’s love interest Nala is also back, this time voiced by Beyonce Knowles-Carter.

There’s only one scene that isn’t directly taken from the original film, and somehow, the third act still feels rather abrupt and undeveloped, and the remake clocks in at nearly a half hour longer than the 1994 film.

The new film also features all the music from the original, and one big plus is Ejiofor’s excellent performance as Scar, which provides a fine complement to James Earl Jones’ reprise as Mufasa.

The decision to walk so close to the original film suggests Disney didn’t want to risk a fan backlash and preferred to make a single creative statement. In terms of CGI rendering, the new “Lion King” really is something to behold. Like with “Jungle Book,” “Lion King’s” CGI effects aren’t limited to the animal characters; all the environments — jungles, deserts, dunes — are computer-generated, and the only reason you can tell the animals are CGI is because their mouths move to match their dialogue.Overall, the music and the story retain the spirit of the original, and in the end, the new “Lion King” is a testament to the advances of technology more than anything else. It’s quite a thing to see, and yet most people will leave feeling like they’ve seen it all before.the song that typified Scar as he sashayed around his lair – has been reduced to mere villainy. The iconic tune from The Lion King – now absent of the devious disposition and lyrical loquaciousness inherent to the original – has received an unwanted adjustment.
