Elton John has no love for the new iteration of The Lion King, or at least for its music.
In an interview with British GQ, the music superstar, who co-wrote the original film's songs with lyricist Tim Rice, conveyed his resounding disapproval with the soundtrack of Disney's remake. "The new version of The Lion King was a huge disappointment to me, because I believe they messed the music up," he said.
"Music was so much a part of the original and the music in the current film didn't have the same impact. The magic and joy were lost. The soundtrack hasn't had nearly the same impact in the charts that it had 25 years ago, when it was the bestselling album of the year. The new soundtrack fell out of the charts so quickly, despite the massive box-office success."
