Good, but could have been better
20 July 2019 | by marceberleinSee all my reviews

The CGI was amazing and you pretty much know the story a bit different here and there, if they would have cast Jeremy irons back as scar I think it would have been a 10/10 irons made lion king as scar his voice was perfect
