    Live Action Aladdin

    Not sure if there's a thread for all the live action Disney movies or not so figured I'd just play it safe.

    I'm not a huge fan of Disney's need to re-do all of their movies as live actions (Or...pure CGI in some cases) but after seeing the trailer for Aladdin, I'm pretty excited about this one. It looks like they are going to lean into Bollywood style, and the colors and cinematography made me feel like I was watching the animated movie again as a kid.

    I still don't know how I feel about Will Smith as Genie, but I think that he might be really good at it.

    I'll say this. This live action remake of Aladdin isn't going to be Oscar worthy but I could be wrong.

    I'm actually so stoked for live action Lion King.

    Because Will Smith as Genie is very poorly creative CGI.

    Ngl, so am I. Like, if they are going to remake them, then obviously I'm gonna watch them, but I would also be content to see new animated movies, so either way we win lol.

    I'm not looking forward to seeing Mufasa die in HD though lol. Though "Can you feel the love" and Rafiki hitting Simba in the head are things I'm dying to see.

    Same here; definitely looking forward to it. I'm a super fan of all things Disney haha.

    Looking forward more to the Lion King than Aladdin though; Aladdin would've been a thousand times better with Robin Williams returning to voice a much better CGI Genie. May he rest in piece.

    why does it matter whether it's going to be Oscars worthy or not?

    I don't think I'll be seeing any of these live action remakes of the cartoon movies in the cinema, but I will give them a go if they make it to amazon prime or netflix.

    Because most Disney movies are Oscar worthy.

    What makes a movie Oscar's worthy to you? I feel like you're making a very subjective claim because I don't consider a lot of Disney movies worthy of an Oscar.
