Re: Disney making live action Aladdin directed by Guy Ritchie

I had no fucking clue that Aladdin is actually Chinese in the original folktale. I'm not sure if he looked like what we consider to be modern Chinese or if he was Arabic or Persian living under Chinese occupation or some other scenario.

At any rate, yeah...Aladdin can't be a white guy.

BUT HE'S WEARING EYE LINER SO IT'S OK

I say they get a nobody. Make a new star, save money on his casting.

Thought Dev Patel would have been a shoe-in?

From the sound of things they really want to go with unknowns for Aladdin in Jasmine. I agree though, Dev Patel would be perfect for the role.

Whoever they cast for the two lead roles, they'll be accused of racism regardless.

Re: Disney making live action Aladdin directed by Guy Ritchie

Disney must do live action films of Duck Tales (yeah I know they have a new TV Series coming out in August), Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers and Tail Spin - At the very least they all deserve new TV Series like Duck Tales.

Get unknowns for Aladdin & Jasmine and fill the rest with Hollywood stars.

Don't be hating on the GOAT Omid Djalili. He stole ever scene in the The Mummy.

Re: Disney making live action Aladdin directed by Guy Ritchie

They're gonna fuck this up, aren't they?

I think people would be surprised at the aesthetic diversity in the Arab and Iranian worlds. You'll see Iranians as pale as any Irishman and Arabs who would not look out of place in Southern Italy. That's not even counting the various other ethnic groups in that part of the world like Kurds and Azeris who sometimes don't look like the stereotypical "Middle Eastern" we see in the Western world, especially in media.

I'm fine with Naomi Scott being Jasmine if she were hired. She looks the part and has some heritage from the Indian subcontinent.
