Aladdin live action movie | 24 MAY 2019 | Disney | Reviews straddling the fresh-rotten line

Recommended Posts

:lol: I can't even. I hope in the end they do a crossover movie between all live action adaptations.

What's the over/under on the cast for this going through bronzer like 80s glam bands went through hair spray?

I have a feeling that a lot of these live action Disney adaptations will go the way of all those live action Looney Tunes adaptations that Warner Bros. was planning after Yogi Bear came out - a ton of them were announced, but almost all of them went by the wayside.

 

Then again, Disney is much bigger on brands than WB.

I thought Yogi Bear was a hit and a sequel was being planned? Then again, I heard that about four years ago.

Dont know if it was a hit or not, but sequel talk is just another form of marketing, really. Especially if its done before a movie hits or very early in its run.

Disney found a way out. This prequel is set in the "Realm of Genies", so the cast will be blue instead of brown/olive.  :mellow:

So here is a list of the non-package WDAS films that haven't had live action reboots this century. The list excludes films in development and films by other studios with the same story.

 

Pinocchio

Bambi

Lady and the Tramp

The Sword in the Stone

The Aristocats

Robin Hood

The Rescuers

The Fox & The Hound

The Black Cauldron

The Great Mouse Detective

Oliver & Company

The Lion King

Pocahontas

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Everything from the 2000s

 

That's half of Disney's library left. Only four of these films were made before 1970.

I was hoping a Chronicles of Prydain live-action adaptation would come out of the success of LOTR/Narnia, but then the high-fantasy bust of the late 00s happened, and then Prince of Persia/John Carter failed, and Disney came into much more lucrative franchises, so I don't entertain any notion that we're going to get a Black Cauldron do-over.

Shouldn't Pinocchio be left off the list too? A non-Disney version is in development, just like with The Little Mermaid.

I'm legitimately scared of an eventual Aladdin live-action remake.

who's gonna play aladdin, liam hemsworth or josh hutcherson?

 

Somewhere in the world right now, Ridley Scott and Cameron Crowe are already pushing for a co-directed venture starring Christian Bale and Emma Stone as Aladdin and  Jasmine respectively.

Harry Styles (Aladdin) and Joey King (Jasmine)...with lots and lots and lots of brown face paint.

As usual, Hollywood will say, "why does everything have to be about race? We just look for the best actors possible!!!"

 

Oh, and the Genie will be either Melissa McCarthy or Amy Schumer.

Only if Feig or Apatow get the gig. Otherwise it would be same old Jack Black or Zach Galifiniakis.
