Artists Gave The New Lion King Characters Old School Makeovers And Now People Are Divided

Published 4 months ago

With classic movies being remade left and right, Lion King, one of Disney’s most successful animation films, wasn’t spared from it either. When the trailer was first released, people were divided whether they like the new realistic look of the characters or not. Recently, a couple of artists – Ellejart and Design By Feo – decided to try a different take on the new Lion King characters by giving them a classic makeover.

From Simba to Rafiki, these two artists took their time to make the new characters resemble ones from the classic film, while still retaining the “realistic” look of the 2019 remake. However, not everyone agrees that the blend of the two is a good idea. What do you think?

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness, so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
