"Aladdin" live action movie remake

Way too much cgi. Go on location in Jordan, Tunisia or even Arizona, or Mexico.

I know teaser trailers are just that, teasers. But man they better come up with something a lot better for the full trailer. If they didn't have enough footage to at least show something new, just wait a bit. This gave me no reason to want to see it.
Ahem.

I'm not impressed by it. This version of the Cave of Wonders is just plain lame. It would work in an Indiana Jones movie, but not for Aladdin.

Look at the sheer SIZE of the original.


And then look at the live action version.

It looks like it would belong in an Indiana Jones movie.




And why did they change it from a tiger to a lion? Is it meant to be the face of Live Action Mufasa?

It's like where you get in line for the roller coaster at Marineland:

I'm excited but not expecting too much. Just like the time they released Jungle Book and I was left in awe after watching.

TheDisInsider is an Instagram account that always reports stuff about Disney movies. They are usually always right! So they are doing a Q&A right now and said some interesting stuff! (You might see this message on other threads lol)

I'm sorry, but this looks like some sort of bad parody. Obviously time will tell if it's good or not, but this just looks a bit odd to me.

I especially like the steely-eyed look Jasmine is attacking us with. Letting us know that she's all WOKE and stuff. I smell another Elizabeth Swann here. A woman who excels at all things because I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR, no other reason or logic needed. A sheltered, pampered princess who will no doubt out-street-rat the street rat and who can grant her OWN wishes, thank you!

Yech and PASS.

In some of the articles it says the genie will be blue, the CGI is just not completed yet. Which makes me wonder, why in the world release the photos without it.

Gawd, call me old fashion or what not, but seeing a plethora of movies with this kind of woman-ness distinction is getting to me. Yes, I am a woman, but I miss the times when the guy was the hero (knight in shining armor kind of deal). No, I am not against females being heroes (excuse me, heroins) rescuing the guy in distress and yes we were repressed way back when and yadda yadda yadda. But, lately it has been non stop with the woman being the hero. I don't want to always have to rescue myself (did that for 20 something years already...). It was nice the day a knight came to my rescue and I let him have more say. I have come to the point that if I want that kind of story, I have to find them in older romance novels. :rolleyes:

You must hate her character in the original cartoon. There’s no difference.

God forbid a woman want to do things on her own. Why would there need to be “reason” or “logic” for that? Would a man need “logic” or “reason” to be independent?

I call you sensible. Now, Jasmine in the animated Aladdin was perfect IMO. Sure, she did that pole-vault-over-a-roof thing when she first met Aladdin, but that's believable. It's not like she ran all over the roof tops like Aladdin and Abu did earlier in the film. And her assertiveness was also believable. She was neither vain nor stupid. I liked her a lot. I'm all for strong female characters, but they, like the male characters, have to earn my affections. I don't give any character a pass because of political correctness. Maybe I'm wrong about the live-action Jasmine. I hope I am. We'll see...

See my reply to KBLoveDisney. Also, I don't like pandering or posing. The only reason Swann could do what she did in Pirates - wield a sword and know how to sail a ship - was entirely doe to pandering. She was a governor's daughter for crying out loud. When did she learn to use a sword? How was that believable? It wasn't. It was PC, and it damn near ruined the first Pirates film IMO. I couldn't stand her. Give me believable strong female Disney characters like Belle any day. And let the men rescue them if it serves the story! What's wrong with that?

I read your reply. It’s irrelevant, since you’re judging a fictional character and already said you were going to pass on the film because of the way she comes off on the magazine cover.

Elizabeth Swann has nothing to do with the magazine cover and the vision you got from it. Neither does Belle.
