Others, like @AMovieTruth, expressed their hope that the film’s visual style will not detract from the story’s emotion and vibrancy. The user commented on the poster’s color palette, stating, “It’s a beautiful poster, I hope this isn’t representing the colour palette of the film. I am already worried enough you’re going to lion king us by making the sea creatures too realistic that they have no emotion so please don’t take away the beauty of the bright colours of the OG.”
