It is a very good remake of the story, but I did find that some of the characters have been tamed a little. The songs are just as good as the original. Definitely will be buying this when its released on blu-ray.
Though turning one of the best animated films into a live-action CGI remake is not the most original idea in the world, that doesn't mean that it's not a bad idea. I am really looking forward to this film as much as I did with The Jungle Book remake. And I am confident that it will just be as good (If not better) than the original.
