Yep, we will see it. We love seeing the version of Aladdin on the Disney fantasy. It makes no difference to us who is in it - We were never fans of robin williams.
Oh, I forgot about Malificent! I thought it was great! Loved seeing her story and not just that of Aurora. I am not a big fan of Angelina Jolie but really did like her in this.Aladdin was in my top 5 as a kid. I wouldn’t see it in theater. I didn’t like the trailer. CGI looked funny. Music in the background seemed like a joke and didn’t envoke any emotion.
I don’t have anything against Will Smith and I like his most of his roles. But I thought he looked silly and not right for the part. They gave him a bulbous head and slimmer body. A richer blue could have been better. Aside from the look, he is delivering quintessential “Will Smith” (which I guess is why they picked him). It just doesn’t seem to fit.
No one has to be Robin Williams’ genie. That might turn out worse if anyone tried. If I had to pick someone though, The Rock first came to mind. He has the look and seems like he’d be more favorable with the audience.
I couldn't finish LA beauty and the beast because I didn’t like Watson as belle. Smith might have the same effect.
Jungle book was watchable but forgettable.
Malificent was ok. Don’t remember much but I’d rewatch it.
Liked Through the Looking Glass better than 1st LA.
Didn’t see Sorcerers apprentice or Christopher Robin(would watch this one).
Dalmatians was a while ago but Cruella was good.
I liked Blunt’s Marry Poppins enough.
Dumbo looks good but I might not watch it because the original makes me cry.
Indifferent towards lion king.
Mulan could be good as a LA.
I don’t think he would have done it anyway. His relationship with Disney over Aladdin was not a good one.Definitely will see it. The sad fact is that the world no longer has Robin Williams, so he wasn't passed over for the role. To me that makes a difference. I will see all the Live Action Disney movies. I will give them a chance.
My older DD and I saw one of the last performances at DLR. I really didn’t want to see it because theater is not my thing but I really, really enjoyed it and was glad we did it.I will see it. I am leery of the live action movies, but I will see them.
I enjoyed the genie at DLR production and also the one on the cruise line.
This is the path I feel Dumbo is going down. Dumbo was like a 70 minute cartoon. These live action trailers make it look like a rehash of that one Tim Burton directed Batman, with so much of the same cast. Dumbo doesn't have much of a human story, but this movie has all these human characters and children and there appears to be some convoluted, contrived storyline that never existed in the original animated film. I'm not interested in this one either.I agree that it could still be good...
But based on what they did with The Nutcracker, and turned it into some strange thing, so far removed from the classic story, that looked so much like that Alice in Wonderland.
Ummmmm..... no thanks....
