    1. the whole internet seems to agree. He is just a bad, very very bad choice, he will make it all about him I bet but not in a good Robin Williams way.

  2. The music in the Trailer is not bad at all.
    Massoud is an arabic name, so I suppose that the actor playing Aladdin is of arab descent That fits with the plot being based on arabian folktales.

  3. Well, I've checked it out. I was right about Mena Massoud. He's egyptian born, lives in Canada. His family name is a common arabic name.

    1. it is! I'm just wondering why did they cast Will Smith as a genie when it should be some blue skinned genie actor :))

  4. Still pissed about Will. Let's hope the other two leads can outshine him in the film, but his ego is so big, I'm sure he'll ruin the whole thing :(

    1. he will without any doubt, he will probably go for crazy... it is in his family, methinks. And I'm not sure I want to hear these kids sing either.
