The Lion King: Revisited is an unproduced American animated musical epic drama film directed and produced by Jon Favreau, written by Jeff Nathanson, and produced by Disney Television Animation, a loosely reboot of The Lion King franchise, particularly The Lion Guard, as well as based on William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. It features Gabrielle Union reprising her role from the television series, as well as Matthew Broderick, Ernie Sabella, Jeremy Irons, Nathan Lane, Diamond White, Jason Marsden, Eden Riegel, Lacey Chabert, Alfre Woodard, Madison Pettis, Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Sarah Hyland, Joshua Rush, James Earl Jones and Max Charles.

The film confirmed in 2019 following Disney's announcement to reboot The Lion King Reborn was executive-produced by Favreau. Favreau was inspired by certain roles of characters in the Broadway adaptation, and developed upon elements of the original film's story. Much of the main voice cast signed in mid-2019, and principal animation began in July 2019, which lasted in two months. Composers Hans Zimmer, Elton John, and lyricist Tim Rice, all of whom worked on the original's soundtrack, returned to compose the score alongside Beau Black and Beyoncé, who assisted John in the reworking of the soundtrack. Christopher Willis also composed the film's score when Zimmer was not available at certain times. It also dedicates the memories of Madge Sinclair, Jerry Stiller, Jason Raize, Joe Ranft, Russi Taylor, Robert Guillaume, Suzanne Pleshette and Mark Livolsi, who were all previously involved in the LK franchise.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, the film is currently held against its production, but a novelization based on the film was released early, confirmed to be placed into an alternate continuity. In an effort to expand the franchise, Revisited introduces several dropped documentations and characters. It received mixed reviews from fans and writers, with the musical score, direction, visual effects, entertainment value, and performances (particularly of Union and Broderick) receiving positive notice, but criticism directed at the confusing overloaded storylines, subplots and closing scene, undeveloped characters, long duration, lack of originality, and perceived departures from TLG.

Plot

A young lion named Simba is to succeed his father, Mufasa, as King of the Pride Lands; however, after Simba's paternal uncle Scar murders Mufasa, Simba is manipulated into thinking he was responsible and flees into exile. After growing up in the company of the carefree outcasts Timon and Pumbaa, Simba receives valuable perspective from his childhood friend, Nala, and his shaman, Rafiki, before returning to challenge Scar to end his tyranny and take his place in the Circle of Life as the rightful King. Simba and Nala's daughter Kiara falls in love with Kovu, a male rogue lion from a banished pride that was once loyal to Scar.

Kion is the son of King Simba and Queen Nala, the younger brother of Kiara and the prince of the Pride Lands. As the second-born of the Lion King, he is gifted with a power called the Roar of the Elders and becomes the leader of the Lion Guard, a team of animals who protect the Pride Lands and defend the Circle of Life. Kion, along with his friends Bunga the honey badger, Beshte the hippopotamus, Fuli the cheetah and Ono the egret, sets out to keep the Pride Lands safe and protected from animals who do not respect the Circle of Life.

Following a threat message of revenge by Scar, the Lion Guard plan to invade the Outlands by uniting the Pride Landers and a clan of hyenas led by Jasiri. In the final invasion, the Pride Landers overpower a huge army of Outlanders, but Scar and Ushari incapacitate Kion, who obtain a scar across Kion's left eye. Weakened, the Great Kings of the Past lend him their strength. Scar attacks him with his roar, but Kion deflects it using his roar, killing Scar indefinitely, without causing the volcano to erupt according to Scar's previous plan.

After Scar's defeat, the Lion Guard travels out of the Pride Lands of Africa and across the world to get to the Tree of Life to cure Kion and Ono from their battle injuries. Kion's team also gets a new member, a martial eagle named Anga who replaces Ono's position as the new keenest of sight after Ono lost his eyesight, while Ono gains a new position as the smartest. Separated by Simba's prejudice against the banished pride and a vindictive plot planned by Kovu's mother Zira, Kiara and Kovu struggle to unite their estranged prides and be together.

The Lion Guard returns to the Pride Lands, only to find out that the conflict has already been settled. Zira's daughter and Kovu's older sister, Vitani, forms her own Lion Guard in their absence, causing an argument between them and Kion's Lion Guard. However, after seeing Vitani's confidence in becoming a leader even without the Roar, Kion allows Vitani's Lion Guard to succeed his Guard as defenders of Pride Lands. Kion and his friends return to the Tree of Life where Kion marries Rani and is crowned King of the Tree of Life with his close family and friends attending. Several weeks later, Kion and Rani symbolize the new union of the Pride Lands.

The film required extensive use of computer-generated imagery to portray the animals and settings.

Reviews and Controversy

Controversy

NalaXSimba

The performances of Gabrielle Union and Matthew Broderick were praised by filmgoers and fans.

The film received mixed reviews from writers. While the musical score, direction, entertainment value, and performances (particularly of Union and Broderick) were praised, the overloaded storylines, undeveloped characters, long duration, lack of originality, and perceived departures from The Lion Guard were criticized.

On review aggregation website, Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 50% based on 9 reviews, with an average rating of 5.6/10. The website's consensus reads: "Despite the fantastic voice cast and musical actions, The Lion King: Revisited suffers from the tragedy of Disney's ultimate narrative departures." On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating to reviews, the film has a weighted average score of 54 out of 100, based on 5 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews". CinemaScore polls conducted during the opening weekend revealed the average grade cinemagoers gave the film an "B+" on an A+ to F scale, while PostTrak reported filmgoers gave it an 80% overall positive score and a 64% "definite recommend".

The theatrical poster received criticism from fans, most notably on Kion's recolored eyes and gained Mark of Evil. However, this error was later fixed in having Kion's eyes colored brown and added back the Lion Guard Mark.

Reviews

  •  ??? - Ginny
  • Too long, and nothing original. If this movie was to impress me on a greater scale, it would need to be a new LK concept entirely. The movie and user in question have also done concerning stuff, and the poor voice cast is drained from being recast. The only thing I liked was Hakuna Matata. It just feels... boring. (0.5/5) - Flakin
  • The film combines the usage of the original LK trilogy and TLG; with the Outsiders joining the Army of Scar, this tenses the rating up. (5/5) - Ava
  • Revisited is very nice, especially the chapter names. Disney did a great job. No criticism, this is well done. (4.5/5) - Sisi
  • All the canon events from TLK were good ideas, but was stupidly to have Kion in love with Fuli and Jasiri, as well as Scar brought in a "clone vessel", inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. (1.5/5) - Kuba
  • I think some of the scenes should be something big. Some kind of a enterprise climax where that the parents and the children could have fun together. (3/5) - Polanco
  • This is possibly one of my favorite films by Myers. The cast, character development and music score are all top notch! (3.5/5) - Alyssa
