I thought this could have been different. I did enjoy the casting, especially the voice actors of Timon and Pumba. And, I am a huge Disney/Lion King fan, so of course I loved all the music. EXCEPT "Be Prepared"! This is one of my main problems with the movie. "Be Prepared" was one of my favorite Lion King songs and I feel like this movie did not capture the ruthlessness of Scar. Also, he didn't even SING! He just talked, in sort-of ryhmey-fast way. My only other problem was that the lions had 0 facial expressions! This is what was special about the cartoon. All the animals had facial expressions. But in the live-action movie, you can barely tell what characters are feeling, so all you can try to do is listen to the emotion in their voice.
