The Lion King 2019 gets all of its musical numbers spot on. They're uplifting and fun.
1 / 7
Except for "Be Prepared," which is woeful.
2 / 7
"Can You Feel The Love Tonight" is a sweet, tender moment
3 / 7
But "Be Prepared" is dull, lifeless, inadequate and feels very out of place.
4 / 7
Scar was originally camp and deliciously evil, but now Scar is more restrained.
5 / 7
As such, the song doesn't suit his character, and it should have just been cut.
