    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    To be fair the original is the GOAT Disney song so it was always going to be hard to measure up

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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"
