The Live-Action Remake of ‘The Lion King’ Will Have Some Unexpected Surprises

One of the few gripes people (and myself) had of the trailers for The Lion King is that it seemed that this remake wouldn’t be any different than the animated version that came out twenty-five years ago. Well, I was wrong. It’s actually going to have quite a few changes.

Yesterday I thought to myself, “Hmm, let me see what the runtime for this new version of The Lion King is going to be?”

I went to IMDb and first looked at the runtime for the original The Lion King. It sits at one hour and twenty-eight minutes. The new one; one hour and fifty-eight minutes! Yeah, the live-action remake is going to be thirty minutes longer than the original version! I am so thrilled. It’ll be like watching an extended version of the story I have grown to love so much.

I’m hoping the thirty extra minutes can focus on more scenes between adult Simba and his friends, Pumbaa and Timon, the growing romantic relationship between Simba and Nala, and what was happening at Pride Rock after Mufasa’s death and Simba’s disappearance with Scar and his hyena army. That would be very cool.

Whatever the case, I’m glad to see that there will be new content to enjoy with this remake, for it gives a greater incentive to go watch the film.

How do you feel about The Lion King remake being thirty minutes longer than the original? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

The 5 Reasons Why ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3’ Is the Future Marvel Movie I’m Most Excited to See

Avengers: Endgame wasn’t just a phenomenal conclusion to an amazing eleven years of storytelling. It was also the thrilling beginning of what will probably be eleven more years of breathtaking awesomeness. Yes we have had to say goodbye to some fan favorites like Iron Man, Captain America/Steve Rogers, Black Widow, etc. but there are some new heroes on the horizon that will surely make us look at this era in the way we look at The Avengers; it’s a great movie but gosh it can be boring…and old.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is one of the films we can look forward to seeing in the next couple of years or so and it’s destined to be a smash hit. With James Gunn returning to guide the movie to where it needs to be I have no doubt in my mind that it has the potential to be one of the best Marvel movies ever made. But what is it that has me so pumped to see the wacky Guardians for the third film? Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!
