This one has been a little controversial, because let’s face it no matter who played the Genie it was always going to be compared to Robbin Williams and early shots where not looking positive. But, this trailer is helping me feel a little more positive about this movie.
The special effects are right on point, the casting looks great and first look at the songs well I am not disappointed – which is saying a lot because I grew up on Aladdin so me coming down from hate to tolerant is a big deal. I still wonder is this film necessary, just like Beauty and the beast and the Lion King. The cynical part of me sees these as cash grabs but maybe it will be nice to see people of the right ethnicity playing the roles, I think. Lord knows someone will be offended by this one.
