“The notion that a 25-year-old film is so sacrosanct it should not be remade will come as a surprise to those who have made a hit of Julie Taymor’s creative stage adaptation.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
 ”Even though I would have preferred something more original, this remake of THE LION KING is pretty strong.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
“If you wanted a shot-for-shot recreation of THE LION KING so the nostalgia you crave is satiated, then that’s what you’ll get from this Jon Favreau-directed remake. If you seek a different vision of a tale that you love, cancel that ticket reservation right this very minute.” – Sam Cohen, EDGE Media Network

“Jude’s film is sharp-edged, implacable, and sometimes punishing in the length of its scenes; clearly, the director is out to make us uncomfortable, which is part and parcel off his exploding of easy national myths and the gilding of bloody history.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE Media Network

“The documentary takes apart the myth of equality brick by brick, not only constructing a case for inclusion, but also paving a path toward making inclusion a reality.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices
