The Live Action LION KING Will Only Use Four Songs From The Original and Scar's "Be Prepared" isn't One of Them
Jon Favreau's live-action Lion King will only use four songs from the original film. Collider revealed that the new film, set for release in 2019, will only utilize the songs "Hakuna Matata," "I Just Can't Wait To Be King," "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," and "Circle of Life." Fair point, there isn't much else worth lifting from the soundtrack beyond that, but there is one glaring omission:
That's super disappointing as watching "Be Prepared," in live-action would've been absolutely insane to watch! Then again, if one song had to be dropped, I'm cool with that being the one. Would I much rather live in a world where all the songs are used? Absolutely. Are you disappointed "Be Prepared," was left out of the live-action version? Are you excited for the live-action version?
