There are 2 comments on Actor Alfre Woodard (CFA’74, Hon.’04) and producer John Bartnicki (CFA’07) discuss their roles in the live-action remake of a Disney classic

  1. I was annoyed that there not more female voices in the remake. I’d like to see a breakdown of lines – I’m guessing 80-90% of the lines were delivered by males. According to IMDb, there were 14 male actors listed and only 5 female. Also, in real life, the female lions rule the pride.

  2. Thank you for the article. It provides insights into the thought process of the actors in such voice centered roles.
    There is one point I would like to bring to your attention. Technically, this is not a live action film as has been repeatedly, and incorrectly, stated. Live action refers to the filming of real animals and actors in motion. It is not synonymous with computerized imaging based on stills or snippets of real animal actions. The 2019 Disney film is computerized animation with more realistic looking creatures, and is an admirable production, but it is not live action.
