    A very beautiful book which is how ever a deception in terms of content I read Charles Salomon's book on Beauty and the Beast and I was expecting something similar; going from the elaboration of the animated movie storyline through the different adaptations to finish by the live action movie This book kind of follow these lines but goes way too fast for my appetite on the animated mobie and the choice that were made for it; speaks a bit longer of the musical but clearly focuses on the live action; detailing it very carefully This is wonderful but it was not what I expected Sorry However it is still interesting and definitely a very nice art work book to have in one's collection

    The Art and Making of The Lion King by Michael Goldman is a frustrating book On one hand the imagery is fantastic featuring pre production photography visual development images and stills from the final film On the other hand the text reads like a first draft with flashes of interesting content concerning the technology behind the film but alongside trivia about each cast member's biography that feels ripped from Wikipedia and other evidence of padding Some might say the final product mirrors the film itself

    This book includes a lot of details around the film making process for the new Lion King movie along with how the main characters were designed while trying to keep it similar to the animated version There are lots of concept art and final renders to accompany the text that help show their processIt's a great book if you're interested in how they balanced retelling a very popular storymovie in a new medium
