Disney’s The Lion King movie has been leaked online by Tamilrockers. Notorious for making entire films available online for download, Tamilrockers have now targeted this week’s biggest release, The Lion King. Last week it was Hrithik Roshan‘s Super 30, which fell victim to Tamilrockers’ piracy.
The Lion King is a newer version of the 1994 animated classic by the same name. Directed by Jon Favreau, The Lion King features the voices of James Earl Jones, Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver and Beyonc Knowles-Carter. While the Hindi dubbed version has Shah Rukh Khan doing the voiceover for Mufasa while his son Aryan Khan did the dubbing for Simba’s character.
Recently the actor told IANS that he has watched original The Lion King almost 40 times. Shah Rukh said, “We started watching ‘The Lion King’ when it came out. Obviously, we had three kids at different intervals. We would make pizzas or dosas or whatever the kids liked, and create a movie theatre atmosphere at home and watch Lion King.” The actor went on to add, “I have seen it for 40 times at least. Maybe not the whole film but every now and then when my kids watched it,” he added.
BollywoodLife reviewed the film and gave it two and a half stars, “It is a gorgeous looking film and it is tough to believe that everything has been created through technology. The animals look real and you will be stunned by the images of the forests, star lit skies and animal movements. In short, the CGI is awe-inspiring. The little Simba is too cute for words. The highlight of the old film was the emotional quotient. We still remember how moved we were on seeing Simba distraught over the death of his father. His realization of his destiny and the final showdown stood out brilliantly. The narrative here does not have similar impact. We so wish that the story of Nala and Simba was fleshed better.”
