New “Lion King” Has More Female Representation And Stronger Female Roles!

Although the original version of the film did not have many prominent female roles, the 2019 “Lion King” movie has changed that…

The lionesses, who only had a handful of lines in the 1994 version, will have more dialog…

And Nala, played by Beyonce, even has her own song, “Spirit”!

Alfre Woodard, who plays Simba’s mother Sarabi, said the film’s director, Jon Favreau, wanted the lionesses to play more of a role because lionesses are rulers in real life.

As a result, the lionesses will also be important in the final fight with Scar at the end of the movie!

Another change is with the female hyenas…

In the original movie, they were viewed as Scar’s minions with low intelligence, but the new movie has the hyena leader, Shenzi, directing around the other hyenas and scaring more animals than they did in the past!

Similarly to the lionesses, Florence Kasumba, who plays Shenzi, said female hyenas are stronger than male hyenas in the wild.

“The Lion King” will be in theaters TOMORROW!

Will YOU be going to see the new “Lion King”?

New Bill May Clear Marijuana Records for 235,000 Michiganders!!!

A bill will be introduced this week by Senator Jeff Irwin (D-Ann Arbor) that would automatically clear low-level marijuana use and possession offenses from Michiganders’ records!

Roughly 235,000 people in Michigan have misdemeanors for marijuana use and possession, and they would be automatically expunged without having to go through the court system.

The bill will also include a route for people involved in more serious marijuana crimes to apply through the courts to have their record cleared…

Roughly 25,000 Michiganders have a serious marijuana crime on their record.

Both Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said they support clearing low-level marijuana crimes from people’s records!

Other marijuana-related bills have been proposed in Michigan, such as a package that would release people from prison, parole and probation for marijuana offenses that are no longer a crime…

However, these bills has yet to receive a committee hearing.

Do YOU think Michiganders should be cleared of their marijuana misdemeanors?
