There was good news on Saturday for those anticipating the release of The Lion King as North Launceston proved that the remake can be better than the original.
For the second time in two months, the Northern Bombers responded to a Lauderdale loss by thumping Glenorchy at home - this time by a whopping 87 points.
North lost key big men Alex Lee and Bart McCulloch pre-game and had four players sitting out the final term on the bench, but still managed to win 18.22 (130) to 6.7 (43).
Held goalless last week, Brad Cox-Goodyer ascended the league goalkicking charts with five majors after coach Taylor Whitford and Tom Donnelly kicked North's first six goals of the game.

Josh Ponting was typically classy and prolific in his 100th game, and was chaired off alongside fellow milestone man Jay Foon.
"I thought the effort was really good," Whitford said.
"To have Al and Bart late outs and Cody Lowe rucking, who I thought beat [Cameron] Duffy in the end, is a great effort - Duffy's a class ruckman and that probably epitomised what the rest of the group did.
"The guys came in and did their job and I think they did really well."
After being in and out of the side most of the season, Lowe will be hard to drop for next week's trip to Kingborough.
"It's an interesting one, Al's probably going to be available next week so what do you do?" Whitford said.
"[Cody] has put his hand up and he's probably going to force a guy out of the side."

Glenorchy was again hampered by an ever-growing injury list featuring Jaye Bowden, Brayden Webb, Zac Webster and Josh Grant, but coach Paul Kennedy hinted some big names would return next week.
"I don't think we can take a lot out of it really - we've got a big game next week against Launceston ... we've got to flush today and move on," Kennedy said.
"The reality with our situation with availability on our list is we're playing some people who we're asking a lot of.
"The second half the guys continued to try and play the way we wanted but there was probably a bit of a difference between the teams."
