Is that you Ralph?
God, he really is Will Smith playing Will Smith as the Genie.
I like Will Smith.
I like Will Smith as Will Smith.
I don't like Will Smith as Will Smith as The Genie.
i'm gonna be sick
I don't see why everyone is so mad. Disney is making a bold move that's really gonna shake up the movie industry.
Everyone's been complaining about everything just being the same old remake or reboot, but Disney is really separating themselves from the pack by making their own in-house porn parodies of their properties. I'm really impressed by their bravery in a time when suits are so overly cautious about what they put money into.
I feel like they could have done him with blue makeup from the waist up and then composited it onto his ghost tail.
Considering that there are scenes where he's disguised in "human" form, why not just make the genie more supernatural looking instead of making CGI Will Smith? This looks like a photoshop.
it's uh pretty obvious will smith is just standing there in the mocap studio. no momentum in his movement, he's just gliding by
These CGI takes on their 2D material look so weird
Jungle Book? Sure, the realistic animals are a pretty fantastical sight
Beauty and the Beast? Frankly if you asked me "do you want to see real life cutlery turn into little humanized creatures", I would say fuck no, unless it's a Guillermo Del Toro horror film
While I would like to see more Genies on-screen, the Disney Genie, in specific, is so quintessentially 2D. It's like he's animated in this way that's celebratory of cartoons and animation history. If they attempt to translate that directly, it's going to look so fucking disturbing (even though it already does and we've only seen his FACE)
Everyone here has been taking about the Genie, but that casting choice for Jafar is fucking awful lol.
This trailer's Cave of Wonders -> LED lights flash on, it's basically some boring carved rock face.
I'll admit his outfit is as outlandish as his 2D counterpart, but man oh MAN does he sound BORING. He sounds like he either gives zero shits or that he just wants to finish this take and then get out of that costume as soon as possible.
Just get Johnathan Freeman as Jafar again. He's already in the stage play and having a ball, I'm sure someone at Disney can re-work a white actor in there somehow.
wow genie looks even worse in motion.
Uhhg. Like the scenery is nice but fuck everything that isn't static.
What the fuck is that pitiful excuse of a Jafar
Where's his menacing evil villain voice and twirly beard
what the fuck disney
Everyone is terribly miscast tbh
Man watching this REALLY makes me question all these remakes. Like, that scene alone has some quality animation and voicework, and the only thing they really need to do is some touch up to make it look more crisp and hd, and you're set. It's not like an old game where mechanics are outdated and limited from hardware that actually has a reason to be remade, all of these old films hold up over time. Just watching that scene again is making me just want to re-watch the orignal.
Well, at the very least they are not remaking The Hunchback of Notre Dame, if you consider that ...
... OH FUCK
Jafar is more offensive than Genie tbh. He sounds like a bitch.
