      Telling any company to stop making money is stupid. Sorry not sorry.

      Disney was good in classic animated movies/ fairytales. For realistic fairytales they should go to school in Czech film industry. Best realistic Cinderella and best Little Mermaid are done by Czech.

      Ok, I 'll be honest .....the aladdin trailer was a hot mess but... the movie was a diffrenet story
      I did not have high hopes for this movie when I went to see it
      When the movie started I began laughing at Will Smith and I felt the movie was better than the animation (don't hate me). It did tell a diffrent story. A modern story that was not expected. And it was hilarious

    You forget that remakes are not a Disney invention. Studios have been remaking old properties for years. How many versions of Shaft are there now? You also forget that Disney is a business whose main goal is to make money. How can you say "Who wants to see this" when the movies make close to one billion.

    Disney had to call out of retirement animators to help with the sequel to Poppins
    meaning soon there will be nobody
    . Everything Walt and others worked for will be lost.
    These fucking parasites stood on the shoulders of giants and used that position to lop the fucking giants heads off.

    5:06. I beg to differ. It is a lil archaic, but it serves its purpose and for its time, was the great way to have the "environment" be its own character.

    The only way Disney will stop is if they bomb. It's up to us. We need need to boycott these remakes. Don't give Disney the money.

    It's the Vibrancy, it also seems to be infecting its way into Video games slowly! Oh and I hate the Beauty and the Beast remake, at least the main characters in Alladin look right, because they didn't in Beauty and the Beast,

    I agree. And while you're at it, I'm sure you'll argue for the end of modern music and bringing back the Lawrence Welk show. And let's stop with cartoons and animated films, and bring back string puppets and shadow theaters. Change sucks. Let's stay in the past!

    If you really want Disney to stop, then stop paying money to watch these movies and stop talking about them. Seriously all of you that keep talking about why these remaked suck are part of the problem, Disney doesn't care as long as they make money. You really want them to stop? Then stop spreading the word.

    I notice that most of the live actions have really dark backgrounds and not enough color in them. It makes me feel a little bored and not excited or magical or something like that. πŸ˜³πŸ˜•

    Did you think the trailer after this one was any good? Did you think the movie itself was decent? Because it’s doing well at the box office. It’s now the highest grossing film in Will Smith’s career.

  • Aidan Barnes

    the reason they keep remaking the old films is because you guys keep paying money to see them. The same goes for Pixar sequels the reason why they make so many is because you guys(the audience) keep asking Pixar and Disney to bring back beloved characters. If you just accepted that the first films were over for good and just move on to new stuff they wouldn't even exist. You guys are the ones who asked for this so it's your fault that Disney and Pixar won't make anything original

    "Who is it for?" Overseas audiences. They're outpacing North American audiences in terms of disposable income.

    what ruins it for me is, they take all the joy out of the originals and toss that out, the CG looks ugly and terrifying, the story is changed dramatically, no pun intended, and elements in the original get changed even more, like with beauty and the beast, we all know the original had him make the sin of refusing someone based on looks, and that he was trapped in his castle to await his true love that would break the spell, but...when you give the beast a goddamn BOOK that could take him anywhere in the world, that whole thing gets gutted pretty quickly, taking away the whole "trapped" thing, making the bond belle and the beast have feel empty and hollow, not believable at all, there's scenes that feel familiar, but overall, it was shitty and not good, there are times when im glad to not see this in theaters or any other way, other than reviews, thats as close as we want to get to those live action shit stains, good lord, plus the magic is lost when it comes to live action, a lot has to be sacrificed in order to make them, and its painful to witness, yes new leaps in technology have made some awesome movies, but let us never forget the 2D animations we grew up with and love, and also never forget to share them with YOUR children, passing on traditions is good, but sharing the disney movies that dazzled you, is just as important, they left an impact that stays with you, no one should forget that, nostalgia, can sometimes be good, makes you smile, but the live action remakes butcher the source material SO BADLY, its painful, only CG that has looked okay, is stuff like toy story, cars, bugs life, you get me, but when they do live action, why does it always end up so cringe worthy and scary

    In King of the monsters, Michael Dougherty decided to make Godzilla a metaphor for tsunamis which is funny because Godzilla started as a metaphor for nuclear destruction which made him famous all over japan.

    Godzilla: King of the monsters was more original then all of thee live-action remakes from Disney.

  • Churchill Ngai
    Churchill Ngai 24 days ago +1 are trashing a movie without having watched it? 14/2/19 upload of this video while the movie is not out until May? Why can't you just give the kids nowadays a break. If they prefer this style of animation over cartoon, let them be. (not saying I like the animation style, but its just wrong to say a movie is bad without watching it first, you're being biased)

    If I wanted to watch realistic animals, I would watch Animal Planet, Disney. An animal simply sitting in a puddle is way more vibrant and interesting than the CGI crap you're trying to pull with the new Lion King tbh

      @Nick Sorenson But its main point is basically that they're bad ideas. But good movies will never be bad ideas, so i don't see how the point is valid.

      +imp3rfec4ionist It still made a perfectly valid point about all of these remakes.

    The best I can say about all of the remakes that I've seen is that the costumes and the decor look really nice (usually, Belle's gold dress was just disappointing). The rest is just.. there

    You missed one important point, Hollywood's reach is now international. There are great deal of people in developing countries like India and China who are willing to watch these reboots, because they didn't get to watch all originals on big screens. Also, Hollywood movies recently have been out preforming Bollywood movies at box office collections.
    And what about gen z, they must be watching these movies in America and Europe.

    Snow White was the first Disney animated film and I believe it will be the last live action remake of the hand drawn era.
