                                                    I'm surprised that Hollywood did a movie like this at this time and Simba is not a transgender

                                                      That song with Beyonce is the worst remake ever. They really trashed that song

                                                        I had low hopes for this movie and I was still disappointed...
                                                        Literally the definition of soulless. If you were to turn off the audio, it would look like a bunch of animals just walking around. There's no life breathed into this, there's nothing original (animation wise, I understand it's a remake), no one took any liberties. It's safe, bland, and boring

ABC gave this woman an exclusive interview for being nala for probably 10 minutes 🤣💀🤣. Don’t see Beyoncé doin press 😒 I knooooo they didn’t change up the movie adding parts for y’all beloved 🤣💀🤣💀🤣
