‘The Lion King’ Shatters Several Pre-Sale Records

Published: Tuesday 25th Jun 2019 by Sam

‘The Lion King’ is off to a roaring start! And that’s before its July 19th arrival.

Easily one of the year’s most anticipated movies, the live action-remake of the Disney classic saw pre-sale tickets go on-sale in the US yesterday and they are being snapped up at a feverish rate.

Full story below…

Per Deadline, the flick’s first 24 hours of pre-release ticket sales has drummed up the second best first-day sale of the year for Fandango (bested only by ‘Avengers: Endgame’).

Additionally, the performance represents the best first-day pre-sales for a Disney film outside of the ‘Star Wars’ or Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Elsewhere Atom Tickets revealed it’s the company’s best first-day sales for a family movie.

Needless to say, ‘The Lion King’ – which stars Donald Glover, Beyonce, and more – is shaping up to be huge!

    Lion King is a cultural classic that has established an already built in audience.

    a total UNKNOWN could be voicing the characters & singing the soundtrack’s signature ballads. The sales for this DISNEY FAVORITE would look the same.

    STOP PUSHING THIS NARRATIVE that certain C|_|NTS have anything to do with the present success of this cross generation film.

      STFU no where does it mention the success has anything to do with Beyonce and Donald Glover!! Take a seat……at the back…..where no one can see you

      I completely agree.

      There is a hint of extreme misinformation and delusion all at once in this article.

      Sis you need to clam down. You know how this blog is a big Beyonce fan. You typing all these essay type comments aint going to change them.

    • Tyty June 25, 2019

      You know this blog loves Beyonce but the article never even said the sales are attributed to her you spend all day typing essays like a lunatic. It’s seriously embarrassing. You seem to have some measure of intelligence use it on something worthwhile not up and down this blog all day being angry and ranting all the time. HAVE SOME DIGNITY!!!

      No one said it was tho. Beyonce and Childish are just always mentioned when TGJ posts about this movie bc ITS A MUSIC BLOG and these two names are highly attached to the film. Yall closeted obession with Beyonce is worrisome.

      You’re such a Beyonce hater !! I thought you had a brain , with all your well thought of write ups , clearly you don’t, TGJ never said IN THIS ARTICLE that those huge sales were due to Beyonce and/or Donald Glover’s involvement !!! Get a life sis cuz u starting to sound like a press ass one ,go use all this exuberance for one of your lengthy essays on Gaga or arianna grande or whoever u seem to Stan this days , I hope u write such good essays in your term papers and not waist all that sense on here!!!

  4. Seth June 25, 2019

    Yet another excuse for TGJ to push their constant Beyoncé narrative but no mention that veteran legends Madonna and Springsteen have the #1 and #2 albums this week
