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.

It's just bad casting. The body is fine. The blue is fine.

Just that face and that voice...it doesn't work.

Maybe if he had an accent...maybe...but he didn't try or they didn't want one.

Ugh.

But at least the music sounds AMAZING.

Robin Williams didn't use an accent, did he?

The credits of any Will Smith movie should read "Starring Will Smith as himself."

Hard to find anybody to reprise that role and come anything close to Robin William. Will Smith was just terrible for this.

Hell give me Mike Myers or Andy Serkis over Will Smith all day

My 2 cents...

Casting is just meh IMO

1. Jafar looks like a pussy. Doesn't even look evil, the mannerisms etc. Although this is just a trailer clip and could only see a few seconds of him, so I'm not giving up all hope yet. But those few seconds were kind of disappointing and he looks really wimpy.

2. They could have gotten someone hotter to play Jasmine. She appears to be too plain Jane for me. Sexy it up a little bit. Yes it's a childern's movie but most of the people (guys) who grew up watching as kids are in their mid 30's now. Don't ask me who could've casted Jasmine better because I dont know, but I'm sure they could have found someone hotter.

3. Iago better be voiced over by Gilbert Gottfried, although I'm afraid it's not going to be...haven't been able to find anything on IMDB or google search about it. Gottfried IS Iago.

4. And Will Smith. Ugh... Will Smith starring as himself. Most would say Robin Williams starred as himself as well. The main difference is, it was a cartoon so you didn't have to actually see Williams in the role, just his voice. This movie you're getting a blue Hulk Fresh Prince and it just looks weird IMO. Disney should have just made it 100% CGI character without showing Smith's physical/facial features etc and it'd probably work out ok. This is one of Disney's most iconic characters and with that is going to come a lot of criticism and huge shoes to fill and could ultimately be the movie's downfall.
