Disney rolled out their latest, and possibly greatest, remake last weekend with THE LION KING, and there’s only one way you’re going to get to experience the full majesty of Pride Rock: by seeing director Jon Favreau’s reimagining of this animated classic in IMAX at AMC.
Favreau used advanced VR technology to bring the story of Simba (JD McCrary/Donald Glover) and his quest to become king of the Pride Lands back to the big screen, 25 years after THE LION KING made its first mark on the Disney circle of life. The result is a truly gorgeous, photorealistic realization of a beloved movie classic that demands the immersive IMAX experience.
Seeing THE LION KING in IMAX is the only way you’ll be able to see crystal-clear images and roaring sound. Every song, every battle, every joke from Timon and Pumbaa (Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen) is much richer when experienced in the large format presentation that only IMAX at AMC can provide.
With stars that include Alfre Woodard and James Earl Jones playing Simba’s parents, Sarabi and Mufasa; Chiwetel Ejiofor as his villainous uncle, Scar; and Beyoncé as the love of Simba’s life, Nala, THE LION KING has a cast that’s worth boasting in the best quality possible.
Much like ALADDIN and DUMBO did earlier this very year, THE LION KING dips into the well of Disney history and pulls out a film that turns all of the moments fans know and love by heart into bold new visions for the future. It’s a film that’s been known to hit more than a couple of emotional notes in the 25 years it’s existed, and making the move to translate those moments into a new medium of realism is something that’s more than likely going to keep audiences laughing in between drying their tears.
Movies like THE LION KING are the type of family events that bring parents back for the nostalgia and their children to experience the wonder for the first time. And what better way to expose the world to Simba’s adventures yet again than in the IMAX format, crystal-clear visuals and awe-inspiring sound. The king has returned, and he’s ready to roar louder than ever before.
