Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies, and dark new forces at play.
The eccentrically macabre family moves to a bland suburb where Wednesday Addams's friendship with the daughter of a hostile conformist local reality show host exacerbates conflict between the families.

This film has a record of the second-best opening of 2019 - and could replace "Incredibles 2," which launched last year with $182.7 million, as the ninth biggest North American launch of all time. The film is outperforming pre-release forecasts, which had been in the $150 million to $180 million range, at a record 4,725 domestic locations. Disney reported that "The Lion King" delivered a massive $78.5 million opening day, domestically, becoming the 10th highest opening day in industry history. Though critics were mixed, with a 56% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, moviegoers gave "The Lion King" an A CinemaScore. Disney issued a $175 million forecast for the weekend, while other estimates placed the tentpole at $188 million. See more »

Life's - not fair - is it, my little friend? While some are born to feast - others spend their lives in the dark... begging for scraps. The way I see it, you and I are exactly the same, we both want to find a way out.

This movie is wrong on many levels. You cannot get into it, it just feels like a documentary with kids voice on top of it. Most important scenes have been shortened, and useless scenes (cheaper ones my guess) have been lengthen (the mouse in the intro ? seriously ?). Yes, the goal is to put realism, but we could not tell the difference between lions (Sarabi and Nala in paritcular). Everything the original Lion King brought to us (essentially emotions, mostly from the animated faces) has been ripped off, event the few jokes by Timon and Pumbaa did not succeed to pass.
Last but not least, the music seems off too. Some good scores are here, but at the end it just seems to be put above everything like "eyh we need to put music" "ok just put it anywhere you want, dont forget suggestions to the previous score for nostalgia but dont care about if it fits".
This movie is an insult to an entire generation.
