After Super 30, Avengers: The Endgame and many more, The Lion King has become the latest target of TamilRockers who have leaked the movie on its portal. The movie in both its Hindi and English versions has already hit the internet within few hours of its release on Friday.
However, the movie has been dubbed in three languages in India - Hindi, Tamil and Telugu and was released in 2140 screens in India and is expected to spin the box ffice wheel by the weekend. The leak however, could affect the film's earnings.
The Jon Favreau directed film is adapted from the 1994 animated classic of the same name with realist visual, hyper-realism technique that will make you feel that the things are actually happening. The characters and environments are recreated in high-definition 3D instead of the 2D hand-drawn style of the original.
