Lion King Evaluation

Extracts from this document...


Lion King Evaluation The Lion King is a drawn animation about a lion cub, whose father is the king of a Pride Land, who is murdered by his brother and then the lion cub that is now to be king is forced to leave his Pride Land by his fathers brother. He then manages to find refuge and friends in a jungle where he grows up, until one day, when he meets an old friend, who he falls in love with and then he returns to his Pride Land to claim what is rightfully his from his uncle.

and as he hits loosen rocks which then fall, you hear extremely realistic noises of the rocks, such as them bouncing of the cliff lower down and then hitting the floor in the distance which may only seem like a little thing but it makes that part of the film a lot more dramatic because instead of just seeing your hearing also tells you that if he falls now then he will die. The producers and directors manage to use light, sound and music extremely well and in the right places to make The Lion King an extremely good film and for most of the film you seem as if you are there with the animals and they also manage to make you get the atmosphere that is going on between the animals, so you understand the feelings, emotions and actions of the animals a lot better than you would without all of these.

    Editing began after filming.
