Kids of Disney’s 2D-animation heyday have fond memories from Aladdin. And its characters really made the movie– we had the quick-witted Aladdin and the headstrong Jasmine leading the ensemble. On the villain’s end, we had Jafar and the sassy parrot Iago, as conniving as his namesake. And who could forget the hilarious Genie of the Lamp? So it’s no surprise that news of a live-action adaptation had fans excited!
However, when Entertainment Weekly offered a first look at the cast of Aladdin, fans had a couple of problems. Now, we always knew it would be hard to replicate the genius Robin Williams brought to the genie. But the problem now is, pretty obvious.
Now fans are wondering what the end result of all this will be. And while they’re mostly reserving judgment for Aladdin‘s release, this current outcry is hilarious! Check out what the internet is saying about Disney’s Aladdin.
