In order to be live action you must have live parts in the movie. In other words some humans or live action elements. If a movie is all CGI like say the new Lion kink then it’s still animated and not live action. Beauty and the beast worked because of this fact. There was a mixture of the live actors working with the CGI images and thats what maade it a mixture. Lion King seems to be all Computer generated and not live. Not Drawn. In other words Its all created. Not saying there is anything wrong with it BUT it should be called live action.. Just my two cents. This move Im about to debut the trailer of is live action. Its definitely a combination of live actors with CGI. It also looks Great. It is DUMBO!!!
