Hey at least they didn't cast straight up white people for all the other characters like the live action Death Note
@Beggar Mugger, Amén! Could of done better with Jafar I think but hey! Beggars can’t be choosers
@Beggar Mugger, L the whitest dude ever in anime and as frail as a tree branch, bags under his eyes, looks like a psychopath. Netflix: a normal black dude should do the job.
It's not that he's bad as the genie, it's that he's not Robin Williams. I heard Will is actually one of the best parts of the movie but it's like comparing getting a million dollars to a billion dollars.
@JewishXenu, he is but like you said hes not Robin William's. They could have gotten Dan Castellaneta to play him because he played genie in the 2nd movie and in kingdom hearts. He sounds almost identical. It seems they wanted a "token" kind of like how all the characters in The Lion King are voiced by rappers and singers mostly. I feel they do it just to do it.
My gf who is a giant Aladdin fan saw it last night and gave it 5/10 and she passively told me that the genie is the best thing in the movie and it’s not saying much. The problem is will smith just plays himself in every film and he didn’t even emote when he sang. He probably would have been better off rapping like he use to but he just plainly sings without any power behind it like Robin Williams did.
@megamanx181x, .... No I don’t think Will Smith should’ve been raping anyone in the movie. Think of the kids!
@K1l, what a difference a P makes
@megamanx181x, especially where you put it.
@megamanx181x, most likely because im sure his voice is latered to hell, honestly couldnt tell if it was him or someone else singing half the time.
@Dr TalleyWacker, doesn’t say much about his singing then
