Well, yeah, I didn't think I needed to qualify the fact that my post is my opinion. What else would it be?According to you and those that agree with you.
You didn't need to qualify it, but it bothers me when people state their opinion like it's a fact.Well, yeah, I didn't think I needed to qualify the fact that my post is my opinion. What else would it be?
That being said, even though he wasn't "treated with the same level of respect," Elton still did the new end credits song for the movie, so I'm sure he was happy to cash Disney's disrespectful check.
Mike Flemming Jr. for Deadline said:They are keeping the logline under wraps, but I’m told that the story will further explore the mythology of the characters, including Mufasa’s origin story. Moving the story forward while looking back conjures memories of The Godfather: Part II, set on the African plain with a continuation of the tradition of music that was a key part of the 1994 animated classic, the 2019 film and the blockbuster Broadway stage transfer.
Barry Jenkins said:“Helping my sister raise two young boys during the 90s, I grew up with these characters. Having the opportunity to work with Disney on expanding this magnificent tale of friendship, love and legacy while furthering my work chronicling the lives and souls of folk within the African diaspora is a dream come true.”
I don’t see why it’s a mystery.Barry Jenkins has signed on as director for a sequel for some reason.
Actually, we don't know that. My $15 or whatever it was to see the film opening night in premium format is in that billion dollars. Not all billion dollar films are liked by the people who turn out to see them or are guaranteed to generate a successful sequel. I'm sure some people liked it, but I wouldn't make a big bet on the sequel attracting similar numbers. Alice in Wonderland grossed a billion in 2010 and kickstarted the recent Disney remake trend, but no one really seemed to care about it all that much. The sequel grossed only $276 million worldwide and was a total bomb.That you didn’t like it doesn’t take away from the fact that over a billion dollars worth of customers did.
