British star Elton John has criticized music for the animated film ‘The Lion King’ released this summer, CNN reported.
“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.”
Since Elton John was actively involved in writing the soundtrack for the original 1994 film, he was invited to work on a new film. However, for the modern version of The Lion King, the singer and composer wrote only one song - Never too late.
“The new soundtrack fell out of the charts so quickly, despite the massive box office success,” he said. “I wish I'd been invited to the party more, but the creative vision for the film and its music was different this time around and I wasn't really welcomed or treated with the same level of respect. That makes me extremely sad.”
