This looks like a hot mess. This quote from Smith has me worried. “I think it’ll stand out as unique even in the Disney world,” Smith says. “There hasn’t been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history.”

I said this months ago. I don't want a Fresh Prince Genie in the film. I realize no one can ever fill Robin Williams' huge shoes, but I wish they would have gotten someone besides Will Smith.

The image doesn't look that great, but its hard to tell from promo shots where everyone is so clean. I'm iffiest on this over the other live action Disney works though, mostly because of Ritchie and because I didn't find the Broadway play that great with live actors

I know it's a simple magazine promo image, but it just looks like an ad in a newspaper promoting Disney on Ice at the local convention center.

Yeah, the stills look awful but Smith will be CGI'd up the ass, so I don't get the faux outrage.

those images look so bright and saturated, like Hallmark TV production. Aladdin is one of my favorite movies of all time so I'm in either way

I believe the problem, at least for me, isn't how he looks, but that he'll just be Will Smith. As someone had mentioned, I don't want the one note Fresh Prince/Agent J/Mike Lowry/Capt. Hiller persona being the genie.

Will Smith looks like a fucking dork.

Aladdin looks too old... the character is supposed to be 18, this guy is 27 but looks 30.

Naomi Scott... don't have a problem with her, but the character doesn't look right without the big hair.

Jafar doesn't look very menacing. As for Naomi Scott, while cute, I think Karen David as Jasmine in OUAT looked closer to the animated version.

This looks like it could have been the Aladdin storyline on ABC's Once Upon a Time. In fact, that version may have looked better.

I didn't even realize that was supposed to be Jafar until you pointed it out. They really missed the mark on their casting.

Ho boy, they really should've led with a proper trailer, and followed with promo images. As it stands, based on these pics, this looks like dog shit.

These EW reveals (esp covers) are not a good way to start the marketing imo. And why not have the final look of the Genie ready to go? (for the few shots they are showing)

Pretty much this.

It looks like they're making Aladdin the Broadway musical into a movie instead of remaking the animated movie.

The Broadway show is good in it's own way, but it's not near as good as the original flick.

Those costumes look cheap AF, like they're from aisle 2 at Party City.

I'm not so sure if I can watch this without thinking of Robin Williams...
