Despite a casting call that seemed faithful to the character, the specter of whitewashing did hit the project when Tom Hardy was rumored to be playing lead villain Jafar.

Originally portrayed by actor and comedian Robin Williams, Will Smith plays the Genie in the live-action Aladdin film.

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the Oscar-winning songwriters behind hits from La La Land and The Greatest Showman, will apparently be leaving their mark on the upcoming live-action Aladdin, directed by Guy Ritchie.

Pasek and Paul told Variety that they’ve worked on two new songs on the upcoming film with the help of original composer Alan Menken.

But whereas the musical number was an exciting comedic high point of the original animated film, many fans are saying this version falls flat and is lacking energy.

Yet from that short clip, social media critics have found a lot lacking, calling it ‘boring,’ ‘underwhelming,’ and even ‘horrendous.’
