    Even a fair amount of the "fresh" reviews seem a bit "meh" about the movie which is kinda funny; generally going "yeaaaaah...we know the cartoon is better but it was...Okay? *shrug*"

    Judging from the first round of reviews it's a "love it or hate it" film.

    My impression is from the clip and trailers only ...

    It feels small. The scenery feels small. The scene where Aladdin rides an elephant feels small. I am big fan of large landscapes. Large palaces, enormous courtyards. But would likely require the use of CGI backgrounds though, so, dunno.

    I want a new Prince of Persia, all alone in a large castle complex. Darker, grittier.

    I like the Arabian Night version a lot. Just an overall great melody.

    If nothing else it seems like people are liking her.

    What's sad is I kinda like this. No, it would have been blasphemy to use it in place of the actual song, but for end credits? Sure, why not?

    Genie worked like 80% of the time for me, much more than I thought. Times he didn’twere Sometimes when he tried to capture Robin William’s energy and didn’t (but sometimes he got it) or certain hip hop spins on songs.

    I like Nasim Perdad (new character that’s a handmaiden to the princess) and her comedy scenes worked, but her other side story I didn’t buy.

    I bought the chemistry between the leads, and yeah Naomi Scott can sing. Her voice is great.

    She has a song though that literally halts the movie that feels out of place. Good song and message and her character arc is good, but the song and resolution could be more tightly written.

    Have a bunch of minor nitpicks here and there, but the biggest disconnect was Jafar lacking a presence, with a bunch of his iconic moments not in the film, and Iago not having a presence. Rewatching the animated version, didn’t realize how much of a presence Iago has in the Animated story.

    It’s cute though. The extra scenes that stood out to me where Bollywood like with extended dance numbers which felt kinda out of place too, but they seemed harmless enough.

    Well he is voiced by Gilbert Gotfried who sticks out like a sore thumb in any role major or minor.

    Come to think of it, hasn't Monsters Inc. already done the strange-creatures-living-in-modern-world thing? I mean, that movie worked because it explored the ideas of how a world like that might work and led to some creative visuals. But this movie just seems more like it's "Hey! Mythical creatures, but they're in suburbia! Funny, right?"

    Well, I guess we'll just have to wait till more details come out.

    Yup. Those are lions all right.

    So full of personality and expression.

    Wow, look at the characters expressions in this incredibly gripping scene. Simba has just lost his father, is wracked with guilt, and Scar comes in for the kill.

    It's Dinosaur all over again.

    I feel like this would be really fun as a short, not as a movie.

    Lmao. Oh wow. Yeah I don't know why anyone thought a hyper realistic version of the Lion King would be worth making. Or was a good idea.

    Pumbaa is freaking terrifying.





    Also, its not even like its impossible to get realistic looking versions to emote, because you absolutely can as long as you cartoon them up even a tiny bit, have the eyebrows move a little more, have the ears be expressigive a bit more motion to the jaw. There'sbeen plenty of animated characters,2D and CG, that emote just fine. Having realistic fur and eyes shouldn't be a 100% obstacle to that.

    Instead the emotion looks EXACTLY the same in every single shot.


    EDIT:Oh wow I'm glad that posted at full size. Not going to tag that, it needs to be seen as is. There's gonna be people seeing THAT on IMAX.

    Yup. That lack of expression is why I believe "live-action" Lion King is the only disney that doesn't make sense. Even Jungle book has Mowgli. I can see how real people can give a different than an animated movie but real animals don't have enough expression we humans register to make an engaging movie.

    Saw Aladdin today and I'm a huge fan! Will Smith Genie was a success for me, and while he wasn't perfect a la Robin Williams, he more than justified his inclusion. Jasmine is twice the character she was in the original and I thought Speechless was great, even if I was disappointed that it didn't keep any of the musical motifs from the rest of the film. All of the actors were good, including Jafar. With the character we got, who was more compelling than the original for me, I think the performance and appearance of him made a lot more sense than the animated version. Yeah, the animated version is much scarier, but he didn't have any depth or accomplish anything beyond being evil. The only complaint I have is that One Jump was pretty cringy for being too close to the original. Some comedy gags only work animated. Prince Ali wasn't as good as the original, but still really good and compelling, while Friend Like Me, missing the Robin Williams voices, was somehow just as engaging. I definitely got my money's worth and would watch it again. I Much better than any of the other Disney live action Remakes.
