Hasn't every Disney remake so far been exactly like the animated version?
Maleficent was a radical departure, which is a shame because Sleeping Beauty is one of Disney's best and purest animated fairy tales.
The Alice in Wonderland movies are also ridiculously different.
The rest have been pretty by the book, yes. Cinderella, Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast. Those movies pretty much established the template Disney will use going forward.
Doesn't change the fact that Jafar sounds like a wimp in this movie
Yeah Genies are sentient beings
Now that I’ve seen it I wish Tobias Funke was the Genie
Also just had a flashback to this
Will Smith feels like a miscast. Corny and unimaginative as it sounds, Eddie Murphy, Mike Meyers, or someone comedically versatile like them would suffice. The character is way larger than life and I don’t see Will hitting all the spots he needs to. But who knows, maybe be’ll surprise. I hope he does. In general, I think these remakes have been well done. Cinderella was just on today and we watched it, start to finish. Very good.
Mike Myers probably should have been the play. He could murder that role. Weird take, bur Horatio Sanz also comes to mind.
I was trying to come up with an outlier, but chickened our and went with the basics.
No idea why his name hit me but it makes sense.
just something about this movie doesn't do it for me the way the other live action remakes have.
I've been emma'd
It does come off as a bit cheesier, for some reason.
That trailer looks legitimately interesting and 100x better than the first teaser they released.
Looks better, to me, to me
Was probably one of the best Aladdin Sega Genesis players of all time. Still play it from time to time to see how my skills are.
i'm enjoying how genie isn't blue the entire time, bc that shit looked weak
also jasmine so fine
they wrote a brand new song for the film because Naomi Scott is good and her on-set singing didn't need to be dubbed over.
One of my genuine love/hate relationships with a video game
I went from being all in on this, to super skeptical after the first teaser, back to being all in
This is me.
wow I hate this so much
To be fair the original is the GOAT Disney song so it was always going to be hard to measure up
Easiest cheat code of all time - something like abba abba at the start of the level allowed you to skip to the end
will smith singing the timeless classic “wild Wild West” > will smith singing GOAT disney song “prince ali”
honestly the Lion King remake will have two of the best artists in this generation in Donald Glover and Queen Beyonce and it still won’t live up to the original soundtrack
Hard to be onboard in this format. That song is so...big...in the original version. The rhythm of it gets you so hyped, like the Can't Wait To Be King in Lion King, this little clip does it no justice.
I'm still hopeful but I expect this to do significantly worse than Lion King.
Also, this response in the twitter thread killed me.
Why did they make this
Intellectual property rights
Pause then ABBAABBA could do this in my sleep on genesis.
Soundtrack is really unimpressive so far.
Elton is back and that’s what matters.
I'll take the kid and I will likely enjoy it, but pump Lion King into my veins.
Objectively, it was nothing compared to the original.
But I'm a sucker and Disney got me. I was having a perfectly average time until A Whole New World happened. Shit yall, I melted.
Fuck you Disney. You win.
Yeah i went in expecting to hate it and it honestly wasn’t bad imo
Stayed true to the original outside of making Jasmin a stronger character. I enjoyed it. Will Smith made genie his own which was good. Trying to copy robin williams would have been a mistake.
I loved it
Good for a 4 year old? want to go tomorrow.
Not really. Lots of violence, Will Smith hangs dong
Just bought tickets, guess she is gonna see some dick.
Way better than expected. I had fun. Will was solid enough.
Friend like me featuring DJ Khaled.... that almost killed the whole movie for me.
Will is great. He gets to be the Will we love.
Naomi Scott is a fucking star
the kid who played Aladdin is whatever. And so is Jafar.
Overall, I liked how they changed certain scenes up and the story from the cartoon, but ultimately the movie isn't terrible but it's not great. It's "fine"
