    Oh my God, this is just tragic.
    1. The Aladdin guy is basic as hell.
    2. Jasmine is basic too, she doesn't oozes charisma whatsoever - she doesn't look Middle Eastern/Asian either to me.
    3. The villain guy sounding like Justin Bieber his first two albums era.
    4. Will Smith being Will Smith
    5. Somebody please educate me where Aladdin is supposed to take place? When I was a kid I remember watching it and everything felt so Arabic/Middle Eastern-ish, but on this trailer it feels more Indian-ish instead (?).

    I agree with Bisc. It's one of my favourite Disney films so I'm happy they are doing a live action. I can even look past Will Smith dodgy genie. Still I feel like the trailer makes it look good

    I think having Will Smith as the genie will be the make or break here. Robin Williams made the animated version a well-loved classic, he was the main attraction all throughout. If he was still alive, he would have gotten the James Earl Jones treatment reprising his role as the genie.

    Let's face it, the Aladdin, Jasmine, Jafar characters are going to be unknown because there are no popular Hollywood actors with Arabic-Indian features who can pull this off. Casting the main characters is a big risk surely. I wonder if Aladdin and Jasmine will be singing here. The "A Whole New World" sequence is the biggest scene of the two and I wonder how they will manage to recreate that.

    I won't watch that. Don't like making live-action movies of these classics and secondly it doesn't look good.

    Aladdin looks off for me, but it's only 5 seconds of him so who knows. What really looks bad is half assed genie CGI. And it's a bit weird look they decided to go with. Smith looks like a strange cross between a plumpy, cartoon Aladdin genie and Shaq's more muscle like Kazaam.

    I like the look of this actually. Was never a big fan of Will Smith so I’m indifferent about the Genie look

    I'm not bothered by Will Smith playing Genie. Obviously the CGI is far from finished and will look much better once the film is released. The people hating on him, will hate on anyone that's not Robin Williams.

    What bothers me more is that they've totally miscast Jafar. I mean, Jafar is supposed to be an old creepy, thin man with a low voice. Now we have this muscular hunk with quite a high pitched voice. It's just not right.

    I think Aladdin and Jasmine look good.

    Overall I'm looking forward to this as Aladdin is my all time favorite Disney film. I just hope they haven't screwed up too much with Jafar. After all, we've only seen a few pictures and a couple of seconds in the trailer...

    It won't look much better. It is only 3 months from being released.

    That's not saying much. It's quite common for film trailers to contain unfinished CGI, even when the film's release is only a few months away.

    Sure, but they don't improve much - if at all. They could've kept genie a secret for now, just tease him and release a second trailer later if this isn't close to the final look. This is effects heavy movie. Probably every shot has at least a dozen of some kind. 3 months away from the premiere means they need to be putting finishing touches, not be in the middle of doing effects.

    It depends. In some cases they are still very much in the editing process in the last few months. For example, they were still working a lot on the CGI for Jurassic World in the months prior to its release.

    Let's just wait and see what they will bring us. It's too early to tell in my opinion.

    Something about will as the genie was cringeworthy. Im uncertain if he can pull it off along with jafar bugging me out... hoping for a secomd trailer closer to the release that is more likeable for me
    Proceed with Caution

    Aladdin's acting is so stiff in the trailer.
