I thought Will Smith's Genie was the best thing about the trailer.

Some of the sets like with the Prince Ali song were pretty sweet too, but why does every actor besides Will Smith have to have such a blank and emotionless expression?

Ancient Greek theatre masks have more emotion and investment, then most actors in live action Disney films at this point.

Well, if what the editor-in-chief of TheDisInsider says is true, then Disney apparently listen to the backlash and will improve the Genie's look. We won't be getting a trailer for a while though.

I don't see anything that looks like "garbage", I just see... well, the exact same movie as the animated one, give or take a few costume choices. To be honest, it looks exactly like what I expected. Not sure what people want.

It's like, you know what you're getting with these "remakes". You either think the entire idea is a lazy cash-grab, or you think it's all brilliant.

I don't think any of it looks "bad" at all, just looks like the same thing we already watched 25 years ago. I'm on record as not being in favor of these remakes in general, but it looks pretty standard, to me. I don't see anything worth complaining about, other than, again, Jasmine needs to show more skin. But that's just me being a perv.

Yeah, I don't get the backlash. We've known it was going to be Will Smith for ages, and there wasn't even a lot of backlash about that, only people mad that he wasn't blue in those early photos. Now they show him as blue and people are still mad.

Weird.

There are a lot of copy/paste opinions floating around for sure. I think I've heard the term 'uncanny valley' about 100,000 times in the last couple of days. He's bright blue... how is that in the uncanny valley? It looks weird because it's a crappy effect, not because it's disturbingly real. You want to see something really disturbing, check out the fan attempts to 'fix' it that are floating around twitter.

Shouldn't it be expected to have a "surreal" appearance, though? He's a f*ckin' Genie.

I rarely side with the apologists, and I can't say I'm excited for this, but the outrage seems overblown. It looks exactly like live-action Aladdin starring Fresh Prince always looked in my head, from the moment I realized that was gonna be a thing.

((Shrug))
