>Will Smith as genie

Robin Williams carried the first Aladdin movie on his shoulders. I actually forgot Robin Williams' name. I do wish that he hadn't killed himself Will Smith is charismatic, but he's no Robin Williams when it comes to these kind of characters. Jafar needs to be able to impose himself over Aladdin. Keeping his hat on would help with this as it looks like Aladdin is bigger than he is from that promo. Aladdin looks ok. Jasmine looks cute. I'm assuming that's Apu or Iago in the back right as those are the only characters missing. Jafar is fucking Iago now? I really do think Genie should have been cgi or a literal cartoon with Will Smith as VA. A Who Framed Roger Rabbit sort of cartoon among a cast of normal people. He's a genie after all. He doesn't need to look realistic. It will be insanely hard to top the genie that Williams portrayed and I honestly don't Will Smith is going to be able to do it.

There was some minor controversy saying that extras were using brownface since they weren't hiring any real Arabs. Disney got into some flack you can google it if you feel any interest. What is funny is that Aladdin isn't even Arab, he is a Copt. Jasmine is half-British, half-Indian.

I found this film while browsing /islam/ not a Muslim, just wanted to ask about why they're sensitive about showing the Quran. I'd have watched it even with the somewhat shoddy 3D animation if it weren't for the social justice overtones. "Muh equality", black slaves/"white" (Arabian/Iranian) overlords (even if Muhammad is portrayed with similar skin). I'm not sure how Muslims reacted to the film.

They only have their hands on Venezuela, though that might change soon. There is one Brazilian channel that licenses Turkish soap operas, but I can't imagine people tunning it to watch them since Mexican and the local series are still popular

In any case they have been making historical themed telenovelas set in the Ottoman Empire for quite some time now probably to romanticize the period where Turkey was still relevant.

Muhammed doesn't appear in this movie tho. That is the difference from Islamic movies from typical Christian ones that tell the Nativity or the Passion is that there is only so much you can do, and you have to walk on eggshells. This movie takes place during pre-Islamic Arabia which is the closest acceptable thing you can do in Islamic media. Two examples come to mind:

- The Message made by Mustapha Akkad who tried to bridge the gap between the West and the Islamic world by telling the origin of Islam, but he could only feature Muhammad's uncle as the main protagonist.

- And the Messenger of God, which IIRC was entirely told from his point of view.

And you can only tell that. Try telling the first invasion of the Christian world like the conquest of Alexandria, Jerusalem and the Levant and that shit will get criticized in the West. You could try to tell the conquest of the Sassanian Empire, but I never heard of it. I do know of a Turkish movie where they tell the fall of Constantinople from the Ottoman's "heroic" point of view. But that shit is hardly "Biblical" or Quranic.

Can't have the leads be too attractive or else the audience will feel too alienated (though I don't know, I personally know some really thirsty virgins that literally lust after Daisy Ridley so who knows). If you want a hot girl in a movie, you are only getting it into straight to blue-ray garbage like Scorpion King V.

>I remember the first turkish soap opera (Binbir Gece) got a nice reception here in Brazil, it got kinda popular. But after that, the other soap operas the channel presented were not as viewed as this one.

I have vague memories of people discussing that show back then too, but other than that yeah, those shows aren't as huge. I actually read in a recent article that they can barely keep up with our productions. Though I did hear they do very well in Chile and Argentina.

>>1047604

The original tale was, but this is an adaptation of the original animation which is Arabic instead. Besides if they were loyal to the source material, they'd have to set it in Xinjiang and have Aladdin being a fucking Uighur and we obviously can't have that with China openly and shameless ethnically cleansing Muslims over there. Which is a shame because I actually like a version of the 1001 Nights that features Aladdin played by some Chinese dude.

Its more like because they perceive these dramas as trying to instill a sense of nostalgia for the Ottoman Empire which undermines the Arab authority.

What the fuck.

She is the complete opposite to that. The movie uses symbolism of her freeing birds from a cage to represent how she feels about her life and marriage; that it will trap her. Later on when Jafar takes control she is put into her worst nightmare, forced into being a subservient wife for someone she hates.

What she wants, which is represented and almost practically described in no uncertain terms, is to be free of her duties.

Just like Genie.

Let's not forget that despite plot-wise being a damsel in distress, Leia shit-talked everybody and was instrumental in her own rescue (the one who started shooting back at stormtroopers, giving Luke and Han cover to jump down the garbage chute). This kind of shit has to be ignored or revised for their narrative to work.

Jewsney can't even do a film adaption that had zero white characters in it without inserting an evil whitey in there somewhere.

It also doesn't make any sense. Its forbidden for non-Muslims to marry Muslim women - its okay for Muslims to marry Christian and Jewish women without needing to convert so long as their children are raised as Muslims. The only time in history I heard a Christian marrying a Muslim was Ivan the Terrible marrying Qochenay, a woman from the Caucasus tribes and she had to convert to Eastern Orthodoxy to be accepted. I never, ever, ever heard of Arabs willingly handing over their daughters to be married to foreigners that weren't Muslims.

If this keeps up, it's just going to go in a circle and return to 2D Traditional Animation, maybe even a 2nd remake, so what's the point at this point?

Couldn't they have just given Jafar a son like the vizier had in the story? You can still have Jafar plot to rule Agrabah, just that he'd rule through his son. He'd look for the genie as a back-up plan. He's go all out on conquering with magic once the deal fails, he and/or his son get driven out (the son could replace Iago as Jafar's confidant), and he gets his hands on the lamp.

If the Sultan is trying to marry his only daughter to a prince of Skanland, he's pretty much handing over rule of his kingdom to this foreign nation. The biggest question is obviously "Why?", but I doubt the deeper reasoning will be explored by this movie.

Since Disney is devoid of creativity at the moment, I think it's safe to assume that Skanland is an already existing Disney Kingdom, but shifted to a time before the events of the main movies. Or 10,000 years and an apocalypse after those movies, depending on your reasoning for Genie's knowledge

Since all we know is the name and the fact that the potential prince is blonde, the kingdom of Skanland could be from Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, or Tangled, since those five feature blonde royalty.

Perhaps Sultan was a tragic /ourguy/ who wanted to prevent his people from sliding into Islam? Perhaps one of the many magic users from those countries threatened him into surrendering without open conflict? Perhaps he sought to genetically distinguish Agrabah's royalty from the masses by making his descendants whiter? We'll need more information before we can form a better theory.

>But who knows how many people changed the original bible text however they wanted…

Here's a classic: "Though shalt not suffer a witch to live."

the original was "Thou shalt not suffer a poisoner to live," since poison was the most cowardly method of assassination. It was changed due to political pressure in the time of Solomon; poison was the favored method of murder by the Hebrew aristocracy

Between Genie's proclamation that he'd been stuck in the lamp for 10,000 years (and that's just since his last master), his mentions of various anachronisms, the real world lore on Genies being that they were djinn bound by King Solomon (born 990 BCE, died 931 BCE), and the fact that the merchant at the start of the first movie knows what tupperware is, it's decidedly the future.

It can't be Uncouthma, since Jasmine's panties would hit the floor in a sodden mess and the movie would only be 15 minutes long.

Maybe Genies are some kind of Grant Morrison multi-dimensional beings and have some foreknowledge of other times.

You know, I read a really good unfinished fanfic that set Frozen in a backwater world in the Mechwarrior/Battletech universe, and it worked so well…

That is also the genie you dummy. He's voiced by Robin Williams and has four fingers on his hands. Obviously the writers just had the genie break the fourth wall, and 10,000 years was either just hyperbole or it's a typical fantasy world with permanent medieval stagnation or it's a cartoon and has anarchronisms for jokes just like Hercules.
