Media Center>First look at Will Smith as Genie
MephistophelesJanx 09:10 AM 12-19-2018
I simply cannot wait for this movie to come out. Hopefully it bombs at the box office and it:

A) Forces Disney to reconsider re-making their entire fucking catalogue.
B) Forces Will Smith to take a multi-year vacation from making movies and seriously re-evaluating what bullshit film projects he signs on to.

This one I just don't get. The genie literally makes or breaks the movie. I would've gone with Jim Carrey. Bill Murray would have been hilarious in a totally different way. This is just going to be uncomfortably bad.
I don't really care to see any of the live action remakes except the Lion King for obvious reasons. It... stars animals. It can only be so live action. If they do it right it's basically a remake with 'better graphics'.

I doubt it will ever live up to the amazing shit Disney was churning out when I was a kid. True masterpieces for every parent.

lol this will most likely suck ass (can't stand Will Smith that much either & he looks laughably bad here)

Recently saw Guy Ritchie's King Arthur film and wow was it bad . Not surprised it bombed last year . But lucky for Mr Ritchie this Aladdin remake will most likely make a profit. People just eat up what Disney has been selling with their remakes of classics . Its baffling.

I think this looks great. I can't think of a better actor to be the Genie than Will Smith.

They're remaking really good movies.

It's not baffling at all.

That might be it. I didn't really care to see Beauty & the Beast, and I don't really care to see Aladdin. Think it also helps that I love Favreau's work.

To Disney's credit, I'm sure your kids are loving the animated stuff as much as you loved it growing up. They're still doing wildly imaginative work especially if you count Pixar.

I can't think of a bunch of better actors than him. I have no issue with Will Smith. But this is just bad casting.

You're sick. Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast have to be in your top 5 Disney classics.

1. Lion King
2. Aladdin
3. Beauty and the Beast
4. Mulan
5. [too many options here]

I just googled Disney animated classics and that list is fucking insane. Of course you've the obvious big names but then even the smaller names that you might have forgotten like Lady and the Tramp, Oliver and Company, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, the Great Mouse Detective, the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Said by douchebags on the internet in droves after it was reported Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker.

Wait and see..

Talking about not wanting to watch those live action. I liked the animated.

and turning them into stale live action remakes. I mean, I get what you're saying but I would prefer Disney to come up with more ORIGINAL shit instead of these shot for shot remakes . :-) But I know why Disney is doing it, easy money.

The money they make on any movie is nothing compared to the parks. These movies help keep the parks feeling relevant, especially to the newer generation, which will keep parents wanting to take the whole family. Last year alone Disney made about $20 billion with a B in their parks. So in a way the movies are to make easy money but for the fans it also enhances their experience in the parks.

A good comparison actually comes from Will Smith himself. There is a Men in Black ride in Universal Studios that at this point just looks so sad. The technology is really showing its age but even more sad to me is just how it feels like a random ride, not so much an experience like being in the movie because itís hard to identify with such old characters, especially ones there people and not animated. The excitement isnít the same and there is really nothing they can do about it. And I canít imagine the gift shop excites anyone to buy something so out of date.

Edit: I just realized there is a new Men in Black movie coming out. Well that will definitely solve the issues on that ride. They will update the characters you interact with and the gift shop will be updated as well. Those are some easy fixes they can do pretty much instantly to help draw people to the park.

Will Smith just doesn't even have the comedic depth to touch Robin Williams' ad-lib portrayal of the Genie. This is going to suck, but hard.

First, dismantle the magic of Star Wars. Second, piss on every beloved animated movie you've ever put out. Christ, Disney.
