First, dismantle the magic of Star Wars. Second, piss on every beloved animated movie you've ever put out. Christ, Disney.

1) I mean, who does have the "comedic depth" to replace a guy like Robin Williams?

2) Disney didn't acquire the rights to Star Wars until long after the prequel trilogy was released. The magic of SWs was dismantled long before Disney got involved.

3) These "live-action" remakes of Disney animated classics have pretty much been universally liked.

Some of you guys just love to complain.

1) Then why even attempt it? I like Will Smith is the majority of stuff he does, but this is just a bad idea.

2) Doesn't matter when they got them, they've ****ed the Skywalker saga up six ways to Sunday.

3) Granted, I haven't seen many if any of them, and I'm actually looking forward to Lion King, but this idea isn't a winner.

Complain? Yeah, but this falls back for me on the last decade plus of watching classics get remade or rebooted. I like new stuff, and I especially don't like classics being remade poorly just for seemingly a money grab. JMO

I can't fully express my surprise that a forum full of middle-aged dudes isn't excited about a kids movie.

I feel like you're not trying to even hide how un-subtly you're throwing a jab here.

When I heard Smith was going to be the genie I immediately thought it was perfect **shrugs**

Smith's last decent acting was the last episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Wow. I mean, Pursuit of Happyness, Seven Pounds. He was nominated for an Oscar for Ali.

This is just a truly horrendous take. My God, man. Log out.

Why not? What did you think when you heard Nolan had cast Heath Ledger as the Joker? Be honest..

And, I feel you. I think everyone likes originality, but it's not the studio's fault people eat up the remakes and reboots. They've already got a large target audience vested in seeing the new take. If you don't like it then you've got to stop watching them and start supporting the originals. Movies like Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets and Mortal Engines are risky.

Toms of movies get nominated that are not good movies. He is not a good actor.

5. [too many options here]

I just googled Disney animated classics and that list is ****ing insane. Of course you've the obvious big names but then even the smaller names that you might have forgotten like Lady and the Tramp, Oliver and Company, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, the Great Mouse Detective, the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Your 'classics' are slanted far too much into the recent past, IMO. And someone making a list of Disney's best and having Mulan being in the top 5 may just be the definition of batshit crazy.

Definitely. I was born in the '80s.

Who really wants to watch Sleeping Beauty? The Sword in the Stone? Lol. Not me.

Though I did love Jungle Book growing up and recently watched Pinocchio on Netflix and it was a damned good flick.

Mulan in the top 5?? Come on. If we limit the discussion to Disney Animation Studios.. I'd take any of Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid, The Jungle Book, The Aristocats, Lady and the Tramp, Peter Pan, 101 Dalmations, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, Snow White, even Dumbo and Bambi were better than ****ing Mulan.

I was born in the 80s too.
