This looks way better by making a few tweaks:
Just look what they did to the characters in the park the last few years.
What do you mean by good? They've been massively successful financially and with audiences, and have done well critically for the most part.
It started with Maleficent, then somebody at Disney to start remaking all the things.
Disney did a live-action 101 Dalmatians in 1996......the movie even got a sequel. It's kind of strange to think they didn't attempt these live-action remakes sooner (at least with their classic-era films).
Not going to lie. I liked Maleficent as it was such a different take on the character (or atleast it subverted my expectations of the character). I haven't seen The Jungle Book but this movie just looks BAD. I'd rather watch a stage play of Aladdin than this.
Jafar is what? 30s? He's hotter then Alladin, still young and a man with great ambition, the complete opposite of the Animated classic.
Technically, it started with Alice in wonderland.
It's hubris, I guess. "Surely I can do a better job than that Robin Williams guy!"
Ah you're right.
This is just upsetting me now. Someone posted a perfect Jafar earlier, now a perfect Alladin. Instead we get a random cosplay Alladin, a Jaffar that sounds like a dweeb, and a Genie looks like a goddamn Will Smurf. Fuck this shit.
Enchanted was 2007. That is a legit good Disney movie. I kind of wish they did more originals like that - taking what has worked in their animated features and just moving it into the real world.
Because only in recent years have they decided to milk everything as much as possible with no regard for potential damage to legacy.
