Why is the Lion King Live Action movie so much more popular than Aladdin?
My town has a luxury movie theater (Silverspot Cinema),
I remember when Aladdin live action came out,
I went to see it on the first day,
(technically it was released Friday May 24th but they have showings a day early Thursday May 23rd)
I saw it that Thursday at 6pm...
(it was the first showing of it for that day, there was another at 9pm)....
So there I was, Thursday at 6pm...
there were so many EMPTY seats --
I had half the row to myself.
I assumed Lion King would be a similar situation....
not the case; all the good seats for Thursday 7/18/19 at 6pm are SOLD OUT.
Why is that?
I thought Lion King and Aladdin were similar in popularity?

The Lion King is definitely more of a classic than Aladdin. I feel like most people wouldn’t go see Aladdin unless they are actually a fan of it, but with the lion king, people will go see that regardless of how big of a fan they are... it’s more of a novelty

Because The Lion King is a better movie overall.
