    They added a white character that wasn't in the original, Jasmin isn't middle eastern/arab, and they brownfaced white extras to make them look the part

    do we know the context? Jasmin was being courted by princes in the original, how do we know it's not some dude from a vanilla face land?
    she's half Indian :idk:
    Not great, Bob. They filmed in England, so one would think there would be plenty of Indian/Arab people available. A vanity fair article from a year ago said the makeup was for crew members and not actors.

    Hopefully we can appreciate the progress we've made in 35 years when it comes to colorism and whitewashing

    My comment is based on me seeming to remember an article In read where Disney was looking for someone from either background for the leading roles. I think the other finalist to play Jasmine was Tara Sutaria

    Was it dblplay1212 or moxin24 who said they didn't watch the Lion king as a child because they were mature for their age and couldn't be bothered with with cartoons?

    Do yourself a favor and watch it with the kid when she is a bit older. You'll both love it. The original I mean, this one will be good too.

    That's the plan. There's a lot of Disney movies that I've never seen bc they came out after I was a kid. Wife is a big fan of anything Disney so we'll definitely be watching them.

    I buy the old Disney stuff for my kid when they come out. If you get the bluray it comes with a movies anywhere code that app is clutch when I want to watch football or something and she wants to watch Sleeping Beauty.

    During the 9 months my wife was pregnant, I downloaded at least 30 old Disney movies. Lots of originals from the 50s. Of course shortly after I got through the list my wife gave me I saw where Disney is starting their own streaming service that will have all of their content on it.
