Disney gets creative for once and yet people complain.

Disney gets conservative and yet people complain.

Disney moves a finger, people complain.

Disney, complain.

BTW, not that anything can be done now but how would have Ben Kingsley played the genie.

or may be they had CGI'ed genie with literally anyone voicing it than a humanified genie.

The movie was always going to live and die based on the genie. To see that it is basically just Will Smith painted blue is disappointing. Maybe mocap or something might have worked better?

Now I get why they’ve been hiding him.

 

Honestly, their best bet for marketing would be to not show Genie at all.  You gotta hide the trash.

 

But yes, an Aladdin movie that gets Genie wrong is bound to flop hard.

Nah I think people knew something was off already when the director and cast were announced. 

 

That sneak peak is atrocious.

That’s some King Arthur-level artificialness in general. Looks like a Guy Ritchie joint, alright.

 

And I know it’s just one line but that’s some weak-ass delivery from Jafar. Makes me worried for Aladdin and Jasmine considering neither’s had a line yet.

This project seems like a big misfire all around from choice of director to casting to marketing. A real shame, considering Aladdin is one the most popular animated films. Done well, it should have easily crossed $1 billion WW.

@IronJimbo looks like Avatar 2 is coming out earlier than expected. 

That is how Thanos would have looked if not for Jims revolutionary head cams.

The spot already have 6.6 million views on US Disney platforms, in just 6 hours.

 

YouTube: 1.3M

Facebook: 2.9M

Twitter: 2.4M

 

The interest exists, but sadly almost half of the comments are disappointed. Let’s see if Disney can fix this without lose people interest.

 

I still think this will do $ 200M DOM, but now i can see Dumbo doing better... what a twist.

The audacity of what Disney has done here is definitely hard to handle.

 

They probably should have revealed the design six months ago so the audience had more time to accept their new, post-WillSmithGenie reality. Thrusting it upon them like this, with only a couple of months before release seems... cruel.
