I watched the new Aladdin yesterday with my family and fell in love with it. Best Disney remake live-action movie by far. High entertaining. Will Smith reaches a new height of his career.
Good for this long weekend and the summer.
Looking forward to Lion King and Mulan as well

I liked everything except jafar, he was horribly miscast and had none of the qualities of the original villain. Iago was also disappointing. I really did like Will Smith though

Jafar is supposed to be one of the evilest characters in cartoon history. He's like the cartoon version of joker.

I thought Jafar was supposed to be modeled after Rasputin.

They could fix it in its following---The Return of Jafar. Although I never watched the cartoon version since I was already getting older.

Wasn't Jafar supposed to be like 70 yrs old (which ups the creepiness factor of him trying to marry Jasmine)? This dude looked to be about in his 30s.

Agreed on Iago. Oddly enough, Alan Tudyk was doing his voice, which was a complete waste of talent in this situation.

I'm glad that there was only like one white guy in the whole thing and that this just didn't end up like another whitewashed movie.

LOL The main cast almost all are from western countries. Aladdin is from Canada, Jasmine is from UK, and Jafar is from Netherland. But you won't recognize them as white. What's your standard of whiteness? Jafar is pretty white imo.

So you mean they have to be pure European descendants.

No, he just wanted to make a comment that made him look like some SJW and it backfired on him.

You are aware that people can be from one country and be a different ethnicity than it's majority, right? Who the fuck is being a SJW? Get the fuck out of here with your lame attempts at trolling.

The rehearsal of A Whole New World is stunning, especially when Naomi yells.

I guess if Jafar is portraited to be as evil as Joker, it's not good for children's mindset.

I did not like it. I would have rather seen an entirely new take on the story than a beat-by-beat remake, and the few tweaks they made were not good ones.

I expect there's new video game releasing. Should be awesome.
Beat-by-beat does look lame. Maybe they think the original cartoon is so classic that they don't want to make any changes.

I was a fan of The Jungle Book's remake and am hoping that The Lion King's remake will live up to its hype.

The Lion King remake is also beat-by-beat.

I think that's Disney's M.O. Watched the Beauty and the Beast remake with Hermione as Belle, and it was the original with one or two new bits, but it was beat for beat.

How are they doing live action Lion King?

How many Disney cartoons in general were "original" vs adapted from source material?
