Aladdin is a modern Disney Classic, so they need to get this right. I just have no faith in the director and have no idea how he managed to land the gig.
I was horrified to lean Will Smith had the Genie role but upon a very quick reflection, I think it’s brilliant casting - he can hold a tune and when he’s on form, has buckets of charisma (which I think is important - someone without charisma could end up playing the genie as simply camp, with I think Will can avoid easily enough).
The Genie is the real star of the film anyway. I just hope they don’t cut the monkey or parrot like the current Disney Broadway show.
