Elton John Called The New Lion King' A "Huge Disappointment"

The Lion King was an amazing film, and yes, I'm talking about both the original and the live-action one.

The movie did get a lot of criticism though, and Elton John is the one who may have the worst to say.

Recently, Elton John had an interview with British GQ magazine.


And he got super candid about what he thought about the movie.

Be warned, none of it is nice.

He had a lot to say about 'The Lion King' Live-Action remake.

"The new version of The Lion King was a huge disappointment to me, because I believe they messed the music up."

"Music was so much a part of the original and the music in the current film didn’t have the same impact."


"The magic and joy were lost."

"The soundtrack hasn’t had nearly the same impact in the charts that it had 25 years ago, when it was the bestselling album of the year."


"The new soundtrack fell out of the charts so quickly, despite the massive box-office success."
