Producer Dan Lin assured that the film will not be like Prince of Persia and that it will have a musical and diverse feel to it.

Look at me. (Laughs) I mean Im not a typical guy. Listen Im very fortunate working in Hollywood; I am diverse. So when I came in to make the movie, I wanted to make a diverse version of the movie. Luckily for me Guy Ritchie has the same vision and Disney has the same vision, so were not here to make Prince of Persia. We want to make a movie thats authentic to that world.

Were gonna be discovering new people because its a real challenge, because not only does an actor have to act, but they really have to have singing chops.

I'm so happy they're following what Beauty And The Beast seems to be doing. If you're going to remake something so beloved, keep true to what made the original great and just add on to what's already been given to you.

And A Whole New World better be in this...

I'm less concerned about who's going to play Aladdin and Jasmine and more concerned over who's going to play Jafar. Next to Genie, the whole movie's going to depend on who they get to play the villain because anyone they choose will have to bring their A-game, especially when it comes to the 'Prince Ali' reprise. The guy who plays Jafar has to be able to make you shit your pants with fear at that laugh at the end.

I'm just so attached to Jonathan Freeman as the voice of Jafar that anyone else almost seems inadequate. At the moment, I can't think of anyone who I'd want to see portray him.

You think so? I dunno. He doesn't strike me as a Jafar. But I guess we'll never know...

I hope some of the cut ideas from the animated film find their way into the new film.

The song "Proud of Your Boy". I know the stage musical out it in. I know it wouldn't add anything to the story, and I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't in the new film, but I would love to have it in.

Jafar to have his own "villian's song". The Prince Ali reprise is good, but Jafar should have more than a reprise as his only song. I was never a fan of the cut song "Humiliate The Boy". Maybe a new song for this.

A solo song for Jasmine. He only song in the animated film was "A Whole New World". She should get more than a duet. "Call Me A Princess" was originally written for her, as was put into the stage musical. "To Be Free", a song originally written for The Genie, was reworked for Jasmine for the Disney On Ice version as well as the Disneyland live show. Either of those song would be appreciated in the new film.

If you're going to give Jafar a villain song, repurpose "You're only second rate" from the sequel to fit the film.

Lets get that YouTube guy, Jamie Costa, to play the Genie. We all win there. Or piss everyone off. Who knows?

Maybe when Jafar becomes a Genie, I can see that. Then Aladdin traps him in the lamp.

We have a winner. He would be damn near perfect for the role. Hell, he can even pull off a sinister villain if Men in Black 3 is any indication.

Interesting. I'd definitely be there if there adding songs from the musicals, these live-action Disney films do flesh things out more.

Get a comedian, but someone who can do his own thing improvising as the Genie and not just be a copy & paste of Robin William's performance. Maybe Dave Chappelle, do a few takes with him reading off the script, then let him go wild and let loose with some Chappelle's Show characters.

Three years? Time flies.

Disney will probably avoid recreating Robin Williams' Genie. That could lead to a lot of unnecessary backlash. Robin Williams was open about what happened between him and Disney and he is still very much missed. It would be a PR nightmare.

Dave Chapelle has similar high-energy, but I haven't watched much of his stuff. I would've said Eddie Izzard since he gives a Robin-ish vibes with his comedy but he might be too understated for the role.

How about this, (Not trying to be insensitive about his death, but) there's over 24 HOURS of unused Robin Williams footage. I wouldn't be apposed to having the Genie be 100% CGI with Robin Williams still portraying the character. He'd still have all the (literal) flexibility of the original portrayal while being modernized for the new film.

On a different side note; I'm not the biggest fan of this movie being adapted into live action anyways. Aladdin is my all-time favorite Disney animated film. I'm still not sold on B&tB being live action for a few reasons. But I'm really worried about the changes that will come when Aladdin gets "updated" into live action.
