The Lion King sets a new record for pre-release ticket sales, because Disney remake seems to be a billion dollar hit
It doesn't open in the cinema for another three weeks, but the Disney King remake of The Lion King is already recording records.
Film card service Fandango reports that the film, based on the first 24-hour pre-release ticket sale, is faster than any other Disney reboot of its animated classics.
& # 39; #TheLionKing is already taking its throne & # 39 ;, the website tweeted Tuesday along with an image in which The Lion King shows the live action adaptations of Beauty And The Beast and Aladdin.
Hot ticket: it will not be opened in the cinema for another three weeks, but the remake of Disney from The Lion King is already setting records with pre-sales that surpasses other animated Disney reboots
The long-awaited remake starring the voice talents of Donald Glover and Beyonce has sold the record holder Beauty and the Beast that was released in 2017 and raised $ 1.2 billion worldwide Box Office Mojo.
It has also sold four times as many tickets in the first 24 hours Atom cards then the recent remix of Aladdin with Will Smith in the lead, which to date has earned more than $ 800 million and $ 293 million domestically since the release of May 24.
That means that if the projections remain good, The Lion King gets another billion dollar hit for Disney when it is opened in the cinema on July 19.
Set new record: on Tuesday, Fandango tweeted that ticket sales in the first 24-hour outsold record holder Beauty and the Beast, released in 2017, and the Aladdin remake that opened in May
Highly expected: the remake stars the voice talents of Donald Glover, Beyonce and James Earl Jones and is directed by Jon Favreau using video game and virtual reality technology
The original 1994 story from Simba, the young lion destined to succeed his father Musafa, was one of the most successful animated films in the history of Hollywood.
The long-awaited remake stars the voice talents of Donald Glover, Beyonce and James Earl Jones and is directed by Jon Favreau.
Favreau and his team used high-tech video game technology to make virtual reality film for the film, he explained to the Australian Associated Press in an article published Monday.
The result is that the audience is immersed in the film and the sights and sounds of the African savannah and its inhabitants.
Helmer: Favreau, pictured Monday in Mexico City, has worked on The Lion King for two and a half years and promises & # 39; a version that nobody has done & # 39;
The iconic locations of a virtual Serengeti and The Lion King were built using a video game machine and while the finished film is completely digital, the Favreau crew used live cameras, dollies, cranes and fixed cams to display their photos 39; s more realistic.
The director, who supported two Iron Man films and the 2016 reboot of The Mouse House from The Jungle Book, has worked on The Lion King for two and a half years.
& # 39; We just want to win the audience with innovation, hard work and artistry & # 39 ;, Favreau told AAP.
& # 39; The story is what it is. The casting is strong. The music is powerful, but we could use these digital tools to present a version that no one has done. & # 39;
