The blockbuster 3D remake of Disney’s animated classics has been raging at the box office in recent years, but the studio is eyeing its latest – “The Line King” – to climb to the top of the food chain.
With Beyonc ਅਤੇ and an estimated 250 million budget star-studded soundtrack, the Hollywood hitmaker has spared no expense to the photo-realistic life without the roar of his most beloved source material.
Predicting the commercial success of “The Jungle Book” (2016), “Beauty Tea and the Beast” (2017), and “Aladdin” (2019), Are
The trailer for the new “Lion King” was viewed by 225 million people in the first 24 hours of November, breaking Disney’s record.
But while the film – which is set to release on Friday – is being billed as Mauser Saha’s latest “live-action” film, it’s actually a very different beast.
No human characters were seen, almost every shot – from the pixel-perfect hair of Mufasa’s shiny manna to the piercing deer’s eyes in the thrilling style of the Elephant Cemetery to the green-eyed from scratch using computer-generated images. Was combined.
And yet, “The Lion King” is not, in any traditional sense, a strict 3D animation.
Director Joan Favreau says it’s a brand new film, made by a traditional cameraman, but completely within the realm of virtual reality 3D.
In the studio, filmmakers and actors could donate digital headsets and film a video game-style African savannah – or watch live – computer-generated versions of Simba and her friends touring Pride Lands.
“The crew will be able to put on headsets, go inside and scout, and actually put cameras inside the VR,” Favro told reporters in Beverly Hills this week.
“Whenever someone came, I would throw them in the equipment.”
– ‘Hakuna Matata’ –
Child actor JD McCurry is not lost on the navigator, who voices young Siba at the beginning of the film.
“We put on headsets, and we had a little bit of control in our hands,” he said. “We saw everything, we saw Pride Lands, Pride Rock, the water hole… we saw all these men, and it was great!”
According to Fawcett, there were many practical benefits to using this important method to shape the shape of the film.
Talented operators who do not have experience with high-tech visual effects can bring their own experience and traditional techniques, as well as their original camera “Dully” and Cranes VR Studio.
Set dressers, script supervisors, and cinematographers could view the film openly and make real-time adjustments in lighting, camera work, and shots.
All this footage preceded the submission to the London-based visual effects firm MPC, which gave it a glimpse into the final film’s lifestyle.
In another break from tradition, voice actors – who traditionally speak their part in solitary sound booths – were recorded together on theater stages, giving them free rein to stress and impurity.
A spectacular scene in which Simba was not taught “Hakuna Mata” (“no worries”) in Swahili was created with this fit.
Seth Rogen, who voiced Warth Poomba, said it was “amazing” to be asked to ad-lib in perhaps the most technically awesome film ever. ”
– ‘Life Cycle’ –
The 1994 “Lion King” is seen as the pinnacle of Disney’s “rebirth” of the 1990s, which broke Broadway’s musical form.
The remake copied the story of the first film with a beat, bringing back James Earl Jones as Simba’s father Mufasa’s voice.
In addition to the original Oscar- and Grammy-winning soundtracks, many musicians want to be behind them in “Circle Life for Life” and “I Can’t Just Wait.”
Musicians Hans Zimmer and Lebo Morake reunited for the soundtrack, while Elton John and lyricist Tim Rice provided a new credit song.
But the film differs in other ways.
Artists are asked to sing their own songs – from actor-composer Beyonc ਅਤੇ and Donald Glover (Simba) to the ridiculously famous Rogan.
Although originally criticized for its predominantly white cast, the remake’s makers wanted to enhance its African look.
Uganda-born Florence Kasumba portrayed the terrifying Hyena leader Shenji, while South Africa’s Jan Kani gave his voice to the wise Rafiki.
