ODEON says...
From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau's all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. 

The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

CGI AT ITS BEST

I have seen this twice and was slightly disappointed as fell asleep both times at around the same spot.Very cleverly done but don't like what they are doing to Disney classics,leave them alone!!!

STUNNING IMAX 3D

Reviewer: Garfield and WoodyDate: 2019-08-12

Disney's The Lion King 3D is the best disney film of the year 2019. The 3D effects and the CGI are excellent. Jon Favreau is the best director. Donald Glover is brilliant as Simba & Beyonce is brilliant as Nala. Go see it in IMAX 3D. You'll love it.
