Disney showed us a glimpse of their upcoming live-action movie ‘Aladdin‘ and the fans are not very happy.
After the amazing trailer of ‘The Lion King’ everyone had very high hopes of this remake but they turned everyone down.
The short trailer shows Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.
Last but not the least, Will Smith is the Genie.
Initially voiced by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated classic, viewers are definitely not happy with the genie!
Man, all this talk about Aladdin makes me really miss Robin Williams

The Genie is a ‘huge blue wish granting factory’ who comes out of a golden lamp but hey, we dont see a BLUE genie around?
Smith’s high ponytail and long goatee beard was even more hilarious for the viewers!
It isn’t too difficult to make a character blue right?

Even though the highlight of the criticism was the genie, Aladdin wasn’t left behind in the bashing either by our twiterrati followers!
Aladdin was criticized for his clothes which look nothing like the original ‘handsome‘ that we used to see in our childhood.
Jaffar, the villain, is definitely winning this time around and we cant choose between the good and the evil!

Some people even claimed that they get ‘bollywood vibes‘ from the scenes and they look like a scene out of a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film!
So Disney made me go google if Aladdin is Indian because the pictures totally look like A Whole New Bollywood production. Ok I know he is supposed to be Arabic I just had to check because HOW IS THAT NOT A SARI 😳 Jafar looking maharajah af too pic.twitter.com/YVPdgEzIG9

But hey? Where’s Abu? Why cant I see him anywhere in the trailer? I HOPE they didn’t remove him from the movie! Aisa nahi ho sakta!
Aladdin was a famous Arabic folk tale recreated as an animated story and we loved it as kids. Lets just hope the bigger version excites us as much as the original one did!
Aladdin is set to release on 24th May 2019 and we cant wait to see it!
