  1. If you were ever curious what a low energy version of Prince Ali would be like, well here you go:

    *sigh* I'm gonna watch the Broadway take on this song to lift my spirits.

      I think it sounds fine.

      Much more suited to Will Smith’s vocal style.

      @Ernest the Panda The issue I have is that it isn't a grand enough spectacle and and Smith sounds flat to me. Dude's leading the parade, he should be better but the crowd is outclassing him.

      Tbf, the zaniness of the animated movie version was always going to be harder to pull off in live action.

      @Ernest the Panda I can understand if they wanted to do their own take on the film like the live action Jungle book movie did, but they are doing a mostly shot for shot remake. And let's be real here, they did the Never Had a Friend Like Me sequence already, which is way more elaborate and nonsensical than this sequence. They should be easy to adapt by comparison.

      Huh. *shrug*

      I mean, it’s not awful, but I prefer the animated version of the song. It’s neat how they translated the large scale of the parade into reality, but I don’t think Will is doing enough to show off how big Genie went for this, and the visuals don’t support his magic either.

      Here, he’s mostly just leading the parade, where in the animated version, he was shifting into many different disguises to get other people to join in. Off the top of my head, I remember him transforming into an old beggar to show off Aladdin’s generosity, and then into a belly dancer to convince a barricade of women to fall head over heels for him, that kept a lot of Genie’s energy in the song as he was constantly shifting form, moving, and shooting magic to make Aladdin bigger and cooler than ever, where here, he doesn’t seem to do any of that.

      @Ryannumber1gamer You just addressed the biggest issue regarding this remake. They are doing a remake of the animated movie, and yet it's ironically not animated enough. For example they released a scene where Aladdin is speaking to Jasmin and the Sultan's associates:

      It's really... well let's just say a cricket chirping would make it less awkward.

      I kinda got the impression it was *supposed* to be awkward.

      @Ernest the Panda That's not why I thought it was awkward. Between the delivery of the Aladdin and the actors playing off each other, with the camera cuts, makes it awkward for the wrong reasons.
