Sir Elton John Comes Hard For Lion King
Elton John Lion King: Sir Elton John has come hard for the remake of lion king, basically calling it wack.
In 1994, lives were changed forever when “Circle of Life” from The Lion King was shared with the world.
The entertainment icon sat down with GQ and spoke about music.
He was asked to share his thoughts on the new The Lion King film.
He didn’t mince words.
“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,” he said.
The new soundtrack fell out of the charts so quickly, despite the massive box-office success.”
He also shared that he wanted to be more involved in the music-making process, but he was shunned from doing so.
“I wish I’d been invited to the party more, but the creative vision for the film and its music was different this time around.
I wasn’t really welcomed or treated with the same level of respect,” he added.
“That makes me extremely sad. I’m so happy that the right spirit for the music lives on with the Lion King stage musical.”
