        The movie is utter garbage, it’s lion king animated without emotion, songs shortened or removed and bad casting. Donald Glover and Beyoncé are honestly the two worst voices in the movie.

                                                            That song with Beyonce is the worst remake ever. They really trashed that song

                                                              Literally the definition of soulless. If you were to turn off the audio, it would look like a bunch of animals just walking around. There's no life breathed into this, there's nothing original (animation wise, I understand it's a remake), no one took any liberties. It's safe, bland, and boring
