This movie has no reason to exist. If I could kill one franchise it would be these stupid and unwanted Disney “live-action” cash-grab remakes. Although, I would love to kill off Fast and Furious as well. I know everyone loves the visual effects in this but I hated them. There was almost zero movement in the animals’ faces and as a result, there was no emotion. This simply isn’t a story that was meant to be told with CGI. Some of the voice work is really bad also. The only memorable things are Timon and Pumbaa and that one reference at the end.
