He’s no Jasmine :datass:


Isn't she supposed to be like 15 or something...

Bring it!

I can't stand that character and performance, it's just a constant barrage of shite forced on the unsuspecting viewer. Sneak preview of Williams' original script:

Just watched that Aladdin reveal - looks wank.

Jasmine's no longer a fittie mcvitie, Aladdin looks like your average street rat with no personality and the Genie looks like an uncanny valley version of Will Smith's brother.

I think he is and they just havent shown any of that in the trailer.

I still say Richard Ayoade should have been the genie.


I'm going to remain optimistic that a)they wouldn't be that stupid and b) Smith has enough showbiz sense to not sign up for such a performance.


It'll be interesting to see how much they draw from the musical considering they've gone with the black-man-painted-blue genie casting that they tend to use for the show.

Wonder what Pasek and Paul will do with the music, too. I love Menken's soundtrack (Proud of Your Boy has proper grown on me recently), but they tend to write pop banger after pop banger, so it'll be interesting to see how well it all fits together.

This is true but I'm struggling to give them credit for avoiding what would have been the most obvious own goal in their recent history.

I still think it looks terrible. I saw and enjoyed the live action Jungle Book because it felt like its own product as well as being a take on the Disney version of the story. It had enough of a distinctive look and feel to at least be able to pretend it was an artistic endeavour as opposed to Disney simply wanting a risk free box office hit. With what we've seen of Aladdin it simply looks like a parody of the animation. Granted all we've seen is a few shots, but those shots all look atrocious. Look at the desert scenes: the camels float above the CGI background unnaturally. The Cave of Wonders looks off in the way of bad CGI everywhere. Even the live action elements themselves look bad, with the aforementioned wetness of Jafar (who's apparently been cast as a 20 year old this time through for...reasons) and the oddly plain and pedestrian look of Prince Ali's procession.

The less said about Will "I blue myself" Genie the better.

I could be wrong, the whole thing could end up looking amazing, but I maintain that trailer was a terribly put together product in its own right.

Jafar doesn't sound evil at all and Will Smith is playing Will Smith...

I'll stick to the animated version thank you very much...

Guy Ritchie is directing though so at least at the end Vinnie Jones will call the Sultan a banana split.

Preezy doesn’t like her, she is therefore not fit enough to lead us into her treasure trove.

I have impossibly high standards.

I mean, she's clearly a good looking girl, but if I had 3 wishes 1 of them would be to make her more attractive.

the other 2 would be to help both my chronic erectile dysfunction and extremely premature ejaculation :/

The trailer looks terrible on every level, but the worst part is that I'll still go and see it because I desperately want it to be good. Whoever was criticising the Robin Williams genie though - wtf is wrong with you?

WTF is wrong with the genie more like. It's so IN YOUR FACE and try hard all-the-bloody-time. Give it a rest Robin.

"You 'aint never had a friend like me"? Well thank strawberry float for that!

Will Smith :dread:
Princess Jasmine :datass:

If there was ever a film that didn't need remaking, sure it's Aladdin...looks pretty poor, but I'm sure it'll do well.
