"...The most stunningly realistic CGI you have seen to date."
-The Digital Fix
The 2020 Summer Movies at the Ritz continues with 2019's The Lion King, a CGI rendition of the classic Disney tale.
From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau's all-new The Lion King journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother and former heir to the throne, has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy, and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Rated PG for sequences of violence and peril, and some thematic elements.
