THE much-awaited film, “The Lion King,” is set to hit SM Cinemas on July 17, Wednesday. Prior to the nationwide public screening, select Cebuano personalities, media, bloggers, SM Cinema partners and patrons were treated to an Advance Screening at the Large Screen cinema in SM Seaside City Cebu last July 13, Saturday.
“The Lion King” is iconic in every way. The story. The score. The songs. The groundbreaking animation techniques. Not only has the love for it endured through the years since it first arrived in cinemas in 1994, it has inspired an award-winning stage musical that has been seen by over 100 million worldwide and, soon, a live-action film directed by Jon Favreau and featuring an ensemble cast. The film stars the voices of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, as well as James Earl Jones reprising his original role as Mufasa.
