Aladdin

Aladdin is still nearly two months away, but that’s not stopping the box office analysts from getting some long range tracking in for the live-action Disney remake’s opening. Since Aladdin is arriving during the big Memorial Day holiday weekend, the expectations will be high for the movie to deliver some serious bank, and right now the predictions are looking at an opening weekend that would land somewhere on the lower end of the Top 10 best Memorial Day opening weekendsRead More »

Iago voice

In Disney’s upcoming remake of The Lion King, director Jon Favreau is bringing back James Earl Jones to reprise his role as Mufasa from the animated original. But no such luck for Gilbert Gottfried, who memorably voiced Jafar’s pet parrot in Disney’s 1993 animated classic Aladdin.

Director Guy Ritchie has hired actor Alan Tudyk to take over the role in the studio’s upcoming live-action remake. Tudyk has become something of a lucky charm for Disney after appearing in several of their recent hits, so we really should have seen this coming.

aladdin trailer

Disney has been slowly rolling out the teasers for Aladdin, all of which have been met with, let’s say, mixed reactions. The first teaser trailer in October featured plenty of the original 1992 animated film’s iconography, but barely featured the titular character played by Mena Massoud, much less the film’s highest-billed actor, Will Smith. But then a special TV spot revealed our first look at Smith as the giant, blue genie, and that wasn’t quite well-received either.

Now, Disney has finally released the first official Aladdin trailer in all its wondrous glory. Watch the first full Aladdin trailer below.

Aladdin TV Spot

When the first teaser trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin first arrived, fans were fairly underwhelmed. Not only did the teaser offer very little footage of Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine, but it didn’t give us a look at Will Smith as the genie in the famous lamp at the center of the story. Even when the first images of Will Smith in the movie arrived, he wasn’t blue like the famed genie voiced by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated classic. But that changed today.

A surprise Aladdin TV spot that aired during the Grammys not only brought more footage, but it finally gave us a shot of Will Smith in all his blue glory. And, oh boy, it’s certainly something to behold. Read More »

disney lunar new year posters

Disney must count itself lucky that one of its characters from one of its most anticipated 2019 feature films is a pig. Because today is Lunar New Year and it rings in the Year of the Pig — which means that Hamm is front and center of the Chinese-inspired Toy Story 4 poster. The Toy Story sequel is one of the seven Disney Lunar New Year posters released by the House of Mouse to honor the holiday celebrated by China and many East and Southeast Asian countries.

Aladdin

With Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake arriving in May, here’s a bit of news that ought to surprise both no one and everyone. Indie studio The Asylum, responsible for such straight-to-DVD knock-off “classics” as Transmorphers and Snakes on a Train are now working on their own Aladdin movie, and it starts shooting in Los Angeles this week.

Known initially for their “mockbusters,” or low-budget films similar enough to major releases without encroaching on them legally, The Asylum achieved more mainstream success with the intentionally-awful Sharknado series. Yeah, that Asylum. Those are the folks who, in addition to Disney’s version, are going to be tackling French translator Antoine Galland’s orientalist mish-mash entry into The Arabian Nights. Colour me intrigued, at the very least.
