The Lion King: Revisited is an unproduced 2020 American animated musical epic drama film directed and produced by Jon Favreau, written by Jeff Nathanson, and produced by Disney Television Animation, a loosely-based reboot of The Lion King franchise, particularly The Lion Guard. The ensemble cast includes Matthew Broderick, Gabrielle Union, 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 was confirmed in 2019 following Disney's announcement to reboot The Lion King Reborn, which 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, Beyoncé, Elton John, and lyricist Tim Rice, all of whom worked on the original's soundtrack. Following the announcement of the live-action prequel to the 2019 photorealistic remake, Barry Jenkins was announced to direct several reshoots during post-production.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, the film is currently in what is known as "development hell" in 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 combines the original LK trilogy, as well as introducing several dropped documentations and new characters. It received mixed reviews from fanfic critics, who praised the music, animation, vocal performances and faithfulness to the source material, but criticized the lack of originality and perceived departures from The Lion Guard, as well as the humor, pacing, screenplay and Jenkins' direction.

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, and while in the volcano to stop his great-uncle, Kion gains a scar across his eye via Zira and Ushari. While Scar believes he has won, Kion summons the Great Kings of the Past to pour rain on Scar, dissolving him for good.

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.

Cast

  • Gabrielle Union as:
    • Nala, Simba's childhood best friend and later love interest. Union reprises her role from The Lion Guard. According to Favreau, the character has a bigger role than in the original film; however, she retains her role as a secondary protagonist. Many fans panned Nala when she was selected as the film's main protagonist, although this was moved towards Simba. It eventually pleased some writers for removing Nala's leading role for the plot to focus mainly on him. Beyoncé provided the character's singing voice, while Moira Kelly contributed as Nala Understudy.
      • Shahadi Wright Joseph as young Nala. Joseph reprises her role from the Broadway production. Joseph chose to work on the film because "Nala inspires little girls [...] She's a great role model."
    • Ãnanda, the late princess of the Tree of Life, and Rani and Baliyo's mother.
  • Matthew Broderick as:
    • Simba, a lion who is the crown prince of the Pride Lands. Donald Glover provided the character's singing voice, while Rob Lowe contributed as Simba Understudy. Glover said that the film will focus more on Simba's time growing up than the original film did, stating that "[Favreau] was very keen in making sure we saw [Simba's] transition from boy to man and how hard that can be when there's been a deep trauma."
      • JD McCrary as young Simba.
    • Sâhasí, Rani's father, Janna's first-born son, and the late prince of the Tree of Life.
  • Ernie Sabella as Pumbaa, a naive common warthog who befriends and adopts a young Simba after he runs away from home.
  • Jeremy Irons as Scar, the treacherous brother of Mufasa, the brother-in-law of Sarabi and the uncle of Simba who seeks to take the mantle of king of the Pride Lands. Chiwetel Ejiofor, who voiced the character in the 2019 photographic remake, provided the character's singing vocals, credited as Scar Understudy.
  • Nathan Lane as Timon, a wise-cracking and loyal meerkat who befriends and adopts a young Simba after he runs away from home.
  • Diamond White as Fuli, a cheetah, one of Kion's friends and the fastest member of the Lion Guard, as well as its occasional leader. She is quite prideful in her running abilities.
  • Jason Marsden as Kovu, Zira's son, Nuka and Vitani's younger brother, and Kiara's love interest and later mate. Gene Miller provided the character's singing voice.
    • Josh McCrary as young Kovu.
  • Eden Riegel as Kiara, daughter of Simba and Nala and Kovu's love interest and later wife. Liz Callaway provided the character's singing voice, while Neve Campbell contributed as Kiara Understudy.
    • Michelle Horn as young Kiara.
  • Lacey Chabert as Vitani, the middle child and only daughter of Zira.
  • Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, Mufasa's mate, Simba's mother and Kiara and Kion's paternal grandmother.
  • Madison Pettis as Zuri, a lioness and one of Kiara's friends.
  • Peyton Elizabeth Lee as Rani, the leader of the Night Pride and love interest of Kion.
  • Sarah Hyland as Tiifu, a lioness, and a friend of Kiara's. She is shown to be kind and patient, as seen when she comforts an overreacting Zuri. Bailey Gambertoglio, who voiced the character in The Lion Guard: Season 2, took the role from Hyland in some action sequences, credited as Tiifu Understudy.
  • Joshua Rush as Bunga, a honey badger, Kion's childhood best friend and the bravest member of the Lion Guard. He is also the adoptive nephew of Timon and Pumbaa.
  • James Earl Jones as Mufasa, the king of the Pride Lands and the father of Simba. Gary Anthony Williams provided the character's voice during some sequences of Kion seeking his grandfather's advice, credited as Mufasa Understudy. Favreau saw Jones' return as "carrying the legacy across" the original film and the remake, and felt that his voice's change in tonality compared to the original film "served the role well because he sounds like a king who's ruled for a long time."
  • Max Charles as Kion, Simba and Nala's second born cub, Mufasa's grandson, the Prince of the Pride Lands, and the leader of the Lion Guard as well as its former fiercest member. Kion's role is described as a "guest appearance."
  • Nika Futterman as Zira, the mother of Nuka, Kovu, and Vitani.
  • Khary Payton as Rafiki, a wise mandrill who serves as the shaman of the Pride Lands and a close friend of Mufasa's. Rafiki's gender was changed to a female role because Julie Taymor believed that there was generally no leading female character in the film.

  • Whoopi Goldberg as Shenzi, the ruthless and cunning matriarch of her hyena clan with no-nonsense attitude and air of authority.

Reception

The performances of Gabrielle Union and Matthew Broderick as Nala and Simba were praised.

The Lion King: Revisited received mixed reviews. It was praised for the chemistry between Gabrielle Union and Matthew Broderick, as well as the animation, but was criticized for the screenplay, lack of originality and perceived departures from The Lion Guard.

Ava gave the film an average 4 out of 4 stars rating: "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." Sisi gave the film 3 out of 4: "Revisited is very nice, especially the chapter names. Myers did a great job. No criticism, this is well done."

Polanco similarly gave it a positive review as well: "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." Alyssa gave it 3.5 out of 4: "This is possibly one of my favorite films by Myers. The cast, character development and music score are all top notch!" PresidentDVD gave it a "A-", lauding the cast and editing, while optioning the deviations and characterization: "Wonderful idea, I like the combination the additions and the cuts are all done very well. The cast is well done, same with the music and the additions from the remake are very well done".

Lilflexy gave the film a 2 to out of 4 stars, writing, "We get some beautiful animation and great chemistry from Gabrielle Union and Matthew Broderick, but those aspects are unfortunately not enough to overpower the lazy writing and lackluster script in one of the year's biggest disappointments." Former fanfic writer Flakin gave the film a negative review, panning the runtime, performances and storyline: "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."
