    Great team behind it. As Aladdin is my FAVORITE classic Disney film. I feel comfortable that it's in the right hands.

    Hopefully they incorporate some aspects that were deleted from the original such as Babkak, Omar and Kassim. I think you can have all four of Aladdin's buddies around for live action feature length.

    People are going to hate me for saying this, but if Harry Styles is a good actor (Nolan sees something in him), I could see him being Aladdin depending on how they handle race in the film and if he actually proves to be a good actor in Dunkirk. Nolan doesn't strike me as a guy to just randomly cast a Jonas Brother. It needs to be a young actor who has acting and singing experience/skills.

    What the ****?

    I would actually accept RDJ as Genie, though. It probably wouldn't be as rapid fire, but I think he's still throw a few pop culture bits in there.



    Priyanka Chopra is in her 30s, but if she was younger, boy.....Jasmine all day, erryday.

    Can't wait for the shaky cam close up chase between Aladdin and the guards!

    Statham is obviously Abu.

    This is the only other one outside of Jungle Book that I was always looking forward to, even before Jungle Book. To me the only ones that make sense are Aladdin, Jungle Book, and Beauty and the Beast since they have strong stories and can fully come to life in a new and interesting way with what effects can do now. Personally care more for this than Beauty and the Beast.

    As for the Genie, that's simple - you can't out Robin Williams Robin Williams, Disney got this right with broadway so I doubt they'll get it wrong for film. Make it a more Dom DeLuise kind of character. Go more with energy than with recreating multiple characters, as said like Disney did for Broadway.

    Disney has already brilliantly translated the film into another form already, don't see them stopping that track record now. Basically due to Broadway feel completely confident that Disney has this one nailed down.

    We don't need another Prince of Persia. As esteemed an actor as Jake is as of late, he was still a white dude.

    Mowgli wasn't a white kid, and so it's not a guarantee that this film will white wash

    I love Aladdin as much as the next guy.

    But still Robin will always be THE Genie. He defined the role. IDK

    Im curious to see how things play out.

    Although white washed, that comes more from knowing (1) has proven can sing and (2) may have proven can act (if Christopher Nolan actually saw something, I doubt he'd stunt cast like that). It's going to be a really hard search and right now have to scour the globe (since have seen no one on the market that has both) because it needs to have those two elements locked down which finding one skill is easy, two is really difficult...

    The only two young actors who come to mind are Ferdia Walsh-Peelo (who is really white) and potentially Harry (as said, going off of trusting Nolan).

    They could use the casting manager who worked on 'Sing Street' though, that manager definitely knows how to find untapped talent with both.

    One thing is for sure, if they're going with casting an unknown (which they'd need to do if they're gonna cast a legit arab) this would make finding Mowgli seem like the easiest cake walk in the world, since the actor needs to be able to be young, arab, as well as a talented actor and singer.
