Piracy hits again: The Lion King leaked online
New Delhi : Disney's The Lion King has been leaked online by the piracy group Tamilrockers.
The film is an updated version of the 1994 animated classic of the same name. The characters and environments are recreated in high-definition 3D instead of the 2D hand-drawn style of the original.
Directed by Jon Favreau, the film features voices of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver and Beyonc Knowles-Carter. James Earl Jones returns to voice Mufasa.
The movie has been garnering praise for its visuals and audio effect; however there are a few who criticised it for manipulating the original story a little.
Despite several orders from the High Court of India and measures from the Indian government to stop piracy, groups like Tamilrockers have been continuously leaking big movies online, eventually hitting the films' revenue.
The website keeps changing its domain extension every single time. It can also be accessed through proxy servers.
