Before we indulge in Disney’s recycle of life by reviewing The Lion King, the newest “reimgainging” of one of their animated classics, the Cinemaholics catch up on the latest details coming out of Comic Con, specifically the big announcements surrounding Marvel’s next timeline of films and streaming releases. Plus, we get into a fur-raising discussion about Cats, Tom Hooper’s live-action/CGI adaptation of the legendary broadway musical, and how the trailer possibly broke the internet. There are a lot of cats in this episode, basically.
This week’s theme music is “Remember” by Hans Zimmer on The Lion King Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (2019). Our review bumper is “Stampede” from that same album.
