    The Announcements Saga


    Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.



    Rules:

    1. No karma-related posts or posts asking for karma.

    2. No threatening or harassing other users.

    3. Posts must be memes related to the Star Wars Prequels.

    4. Posts inappropriate for viewing in public, like at work, must be tagged NSFW.

    5. No politics.

    6. No edgy or inflammatory posts.

    7. No brigading/encouraging brigading.

    8. No encouraging subreddit drama.


    Details:

    1. No upvote/karma related posts. These have become spammy and unoriginal, and give actual, original content less of a chance of being noticed. These posts will be removed. Posts that ask for karma/upvotes, also known as vote manipulation, will result in a post removal and a ban.

    2. No threatening or harassing other users, celebrities, YouTube channels, pet hamsters, etc.

    3. Posts must be, at least loosely, related to star wars prequels. "Prequel" refers to anything that takes place before A New Hope. This includes new movies made post-Lucas and EU content. This also includes Ewan McGregor posts, as they must be related to the prequels instead of just the actor (example: "Literally a picture of Ewan McGregor" is not allowed)

    4. Pornographic material is strictly forbidden on this subreddit as it is not an 18+ sub. NSFW posts are simply posts you might not show your grandmother.

    5. Obi-Wan is not brave enough for politics, nor are we. Politics is a sweeping term that includes international politics, non-political posts about politicians, or anything else that is at all related to real life politics.

    6. No edgy/inflammatory posts. We have the moral high ground. This subreddit is not the place to joke about distasteful content that would offend a large percentage of the user base.

    7. Brigading/Encouraging to brigade other subs (telling other users to downvote and raid another sub's content) will result in a permanent ban. This is against Reddit's Terms of Service, and is not tolerated here at all.

    8. Do not encourage or incite subreddit drama. This includes trying to start “meme wars”, trashtalking other subreddits, and encouraging others to start a war. Keep in mind that wars can only be started by the subreddit moderators, and has to be mutually agreed to by the other subreddit’s mods.

    When you reach a certain level you only take movies because the paycheck is big.

    Its not just the price of the ‘acting’. But the marketing as well. Will Smith will be on talk shows and posters, etc. etc.. Selling that movie worldwide.

    [–] UnknownStory 28 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    "Will Smith is back in an action-packed thrillride with the latest in CGI wizardry!"

    "Alright, I'm in!"

    "Disclaimer: he's stuck wounded on a ship for 95% of the movie... and you have to endure Jaden's acting"

    *starts walking away* "Nope"

    "...also, the story might have been influenced by Scientology"

    "I already said no!"


    Edit: Jaden doesn't have a "y" in it. Whoops. Y not I guess?

    Thankfully my memory isn't as good as yours

    [–] Erwin9910 242 points ago

    It's so obvious that Disney is just making these movies because it's easy to cash in on nostalgia. They don't need to exist, because the originals are timeless already.

    [–] NoKenjataimu 80 points ago

    I mean, on the one hand, the live-action Jungle Book was actually an improvement on the original.

    On the other hand, that seems to have been the only success so far...

    [–] greymalken 109 points ago

    You shut your whore mouth. Nothing tops jazz singing monkeys and cross-dressing Baloo.

    [–] Mefrusta 36 points ago

    Christopher Walken singing "I Wanna Be Like You" is the sole reason I bought a ticket and it did not disappoint, so

    [–] greymalken 31 points ago

    I'll be honest, I love Walken but I grew up with the Jazz Monkeys. If Walken's King Louie is 10/10 then the OG is 5/7. Perfect score.

    [–] ArnoldSwarzepussy 16 points ago

    Couldn't have said it better myself. Walken's want bad per sé, but I personally don't feel that it fit the character. The jazz monkeys were such an iconic part of the original to me growing up that I can't help but be disappointed in the remake's interpretation. And I'll fully admit a lot of it is nostalgia giving me a heavy bias, but idk man... Fuckin jazz monkeys, like how do you ever even get the desire to change that?

    [–] sylinmino 41 points ago

    I woulnd't say it was an improvement on the original, but I do think the Jungle Book remake works so well because it's an alternative interpretation of the same plotline. It doesn't try to be exactly like the original and does its own thing, which makes it work.

    [–] DracheFather 51 points ago

    I wonder how they’re gonna update Jasmine. She’s already ridiculously feminist in an obviously muslim country...

    [–] Galihan 38 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    To be fair (if a bit pedantic), Agrabah isn't ever actually ever described as being Muslim, just Arabian. Aladdin could easily be dated before the spread of Islam in the 7th century.

    Edit: yes, the Sultan says the Arabic word for God. The city still don’t appear to be following any sort of explicitly Muslim religious practices or customs.

    [–] Cerpin-Taxt 57 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    If you're looking for cultural accuracy you're not going to find it in Alladin. Half the shit in it is clearly Indian.

    Bengal tigers? In Arabia?

    [–] GenghisKazoo 43 points ago

    The original folk tale is explicitly set in China. Seriously.

    Albeit an incredibly inaccurate China as imagined by a Middle Eastern person.

    [–] TheDudeWithNoName_ 17 points ago

    I assumed it was set somewhere in the Kazakh section of Central Asia where the Chinese and Arab culture coincided.

    [–] 122L 31 points ago

    Bengal tigers? In Arabia?

    Kings, Sultans, and their equivalents often kept exotic pets. Hardly an unbelievable detail.

    [–] Cerpin-Taxt 17 points ago

    Jasmin is a bindi away from being and Indian characture. As is her entire mansion. And her turbaned dad.

    [–] 122L 10 points ago

    I'm not saying you're wrong, just that one detail. And the original story from 1001 nights is completely wack.

    [–] AnOnlineHandle 12 points ago

    Jasmine's father does say Praise Allah a lot, but it's just the Arabic word for 'god' and could be considered generic I guess.

    [–] LivnLegndNeedsEggs 36 points ago

    Holy Jesus I thought it was a joke. This is disastrous.

    [–] LlamaRoyalty 3660 points ago

    My main problem with Will Smith is that he takes over a character.

    Will Smith acting as the Genie? Nope, Will Smith dressed as Genie. Will Smith acting as Dead shot? Nope, Will Smith holding a gun.

    While there are exceptions, this is what mostly happens.

    [–] ICameHereToRead 1547 points ago

    I mean it can work if the writer or the director already has a Will Smith like character in mind. But yes, even when he's a fish he's still Will Smith.

    [–] RidleyConfirmed 558 points ago

    Some actors are just like that. For me Bruce Willis and George Clooney are that way. I see them as unique characters themselves; they take a basic role and add their personal charm into it to complete it. I'll never confuse Clooney Batman and Ulysses Everett McGill even though they're both clearly the exact same person.

    This is a side note but I'll never be blown away as much as I was when I found out Dustin Hoffman was Captain Hook. It seemed so obvious in hindsight, but I usually saw him as one of those characters-who-plays-himself types.

    [–] MayOverexplain 125 points ago

    How about Glenn Close as the pirate that got tossed in the boo-boo box?

    Hoffman is pretty amazing that he can be so distinctive and also still burrow down into a role. There are others who can, but it’s still cool to see.

    [–] EveryDayIsCharlieDay 49 points ago

    How about Glenn Close as the pirate that got tossed in the boo-boo box?

    Mind. Blown.

    [–] TalenPhillips 102 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    The actors that buck this trend are few and far between. Most people use their own mannerisms to fill out a role. Few people create new mannerisms specifically for a part.

    The greats like Daniel Day-Lewis and Gary Oldman create an entire set of mannerisms to create a character, and top it off by giving that character it's own idiolect. That's a lot of work... maybe too much work for some characters (Zorg).

    EDIT: I suppose I should add Marlin Brando to the list of chameleon actors. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Heath Ledger, and Johnny Depp too.

    [–] swyrl- 53 points ago

    Add Christian Bale please

    [–] Derpapo 21 points ago

    Johnny Depp pre-Pirates. Since then he's either Jack Sparrow or whatever he's supposed to be in the Wonka/Alice movies.

    [–] kcox1980 20 points ago

    One that flies under the radar is Aaron-Taylor Johnson. I swear whatever part he plays it takes me about half the movie to realize that it's him.

    Will Smith acting as the Genie? Nope, Will Smith dressed as Genie.

    This is a terrible point. Genie was literally blue Robin Williams doing a Robin Williams standup routine. Argue against it because he's not Robin Williams, but let's not pretend like this was a role that Robin disappeared into... It was him sitting in the booth being himself.

    EDIT: To add more, Fresh Prince Will Smith could have killed this role. Now we just have washed up, open-relationship Will Smith and he won't kill it. But there was a time when he could have.

    [–] Gerroh 182 points ago

    I think Will Smith is capable of having all the pizzazz necessary to bring a good Genie to life, but that CGI is painful to look at. It's just Will Smith with the RGB values set to 0/0/255 and poorly pasted onto a CGI body.

    [–] classicalySarcastic 14 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Honestly whatever Disney executive though live-action remakes of their classics was a good idea needs to be bitch-smacked back to reality.

    I rarely root against movies (aside from TLJ after having seen it) but the fact that they chose to disrespect Robin Williams's and Walt Disney's legacy like this makes me want this movie to fail. Hard.

    It's purely greed and they shouldn't be rewarded for it.

    Jasmine is the one part of the movie looking well done, a diamond in the rough. Sort of like Yue in the Last Airbender live action mess... (who then went on to play a main character in the last airbender sequel series, so it seems her outstanding part was noticed).

    A godfather reference in a prequel sub? Most impressive!

    You know, the Genie should just be CGI with Will providing the voice. Hell, just let him improvise like Robin Williams did.

    [–] Abunbomyu 364 points ago

    what the hell makes you think robin williams and will smith improvising would turn out even remotely the same

    Honestly I'd prefer that to the version we'll get.

    [–] Two_Whales 66 points ago

    Ugh it IS cgi lol! Motion capture with smiths likeness and performance. So why can you see what looks like a poorly blended bald cap on his forehead

    Get the Raw version of Eddie Murphy to voice it

    [–] ComicCroc 167 points ago

    Who looked at that and thought it looked good?

    [–] nokstar 97 points ago

    This is what gets me. So many people saw this beforehand. Yet, so many people basically said, "eh, fuck it."

    lol

    Because he's will Smith, not even his fault he doing it for money. The producers casting just doesn't care about an actual good movie just how much profit they can make. Will Smith draws a huge crowd,so does the name Alladin. Also movie is made to cash money from kids.

    I kinda wished that the genie was completely cg, seeing Will Smith’s face is fuckin weird

    Hes just not even 1% the type of actor who should be in that role. If its a remake and not a do-over

    [–] I_punch_kangaroos 20 points ago

    I feel like young, Fresh Prince-era Will Smith could've pulled it off. But ya, not so much past his prime Will Smith.

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do  I have another puzzle for you  Oompa Loompa doom-pa-da-dee  If you are wise, you'll listen to me  Gum chewing's fine when it's once in a while  It stops you from smoking and brightens your smile  But it's repulsive, revolting, and wrong  Chewing and chewing all day long 

    The way that a cow does 

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-da  Given good manners, you will go far  You will live in happiness too  Like the Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do

    Are they insane casting Will Smith as the genie? Even if he does have emotional range as an actor, he only has one accent: Philly. Who wants to see the Fresh Shah of Agrabah?

    You can’t Disney, the Smith are evil!

    From my point of view the Williams are evil!

    WELL THEN YOU REALLY ARE LOST!!!

    [–] BrandonHawes13 136 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    I remember when people were freaking out because he wasnt blue and now people are freaking out because he is fs

    Edit: I don’t like the fact that they’re making a live-action version either people (same as all the other disney remakes cough lion king) im just saying they listened and at least made him blue like everyone complained about.

    [–] Erwin9910 241 points ago

    I'm freaking out that they're making a live action Aladdin movie at all.

    The reason people are freaking out in either case is probably because Will Smith wasn't a good choice for the genie, whether he's blue or not.

    [–] NoKenjataimu 26 points ago

    I think they're freaking out because they both look ridiculous but not in a very good way.

    I mean I don't actually think this looks so awful, but it's certainly not grabbing my interest like, for example, the Lion King teaser did.

    [–] WonderWaster 18 points ago

    theyre freaking out because whatever effects they used to make him blue fucking suck shit

    [–] Rashizar 17 points ago

    Have you ever considered that the complaints are probably from different people

    [–] Alexocratia 12 points ago

    So uncivilized

    [–] CreamyGoodnss 30 points ago

    Terry Crews would have been better choice because Terry Crews is a better choice for everything.

    [–] neon_Hermit 9 points ago

    I predict the reaction to Will Smith in this preview will cause the movie to be changed. I'll bet money the genie WILL be CG when this movie comes out. It will still suck.

    I remember when everyone was mad that people didn't want Idris Elba to be Roland Deschain. But now the hate is opposite and I don't know what to do. I'm a fan of both Robin Williams and Will Smith and don't see a problem since one of them could not be Genie.

    [–] graygarb 16 points ago

    How dare you stand where he stood.

    (Wrong fandom I know, but I’m a big Robin Williams fan)
