Massive Lion King fans but I am have some trepidation with the reports of the voices matched to the faces of the animals.

Saw this last night. I was a little worried because I had heard some negative things... BUT I totally disagree with them! I really liked it.
This is one of the better Disney "Live Action" remakes that has come out. And maybe thats because its so close to the animated film. the CGI is incredible. It looks SO REAL. I was in awe the entire time.
