    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.

    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.
