    I never knew it was this bad :picard:


    Disney could've easily broken off a little money and put it out there that they were "inspired by" Kimba. But they had to go all in with the "first original story" marketing smh.

    The thing that's hilarious to me is the directer tried to front like he never even heard of Kimba even though he worked on anime in Japan in the 80s!

    shyt, Matthew Broderick actually thought it was going to be a Kimba movie :russ:

    Okay so I read up on it some more and it looks like justice got served: When Disney sent out the cease & desist, Osamu Tezuka's fam counter-sued and now anytime Disney does anything with the Lion King, the Tezukas get a check :russ:

    Damn I never knew this...I was 16 when the og lion king came out, so I never got the hype. I was in my rebellious teen yrs it was simply a cartoon to me and it still is, but my 7 yr old daughter loves it and I kinda get it now. We can't wait to see this new live action version
