As the live action and soulless rendition of Aladdin eats up all of our wallets, here’s a fun video about the innovative animated classic … well I say fun, but … yikes.
1993’s Aladdin was a pioneer for the world of animation being the first film to cast an A-list actor for a supporting role. It’s weird to think about, but prior to this, voice acting and screen acting were two very separate things with no overlap.
Disney took a big gamble in approaching Williams for the role of the Genie and it paid off, but what most people don’t know is they kinda screwed him over to make it.
LindseyEllis has a great video about the history of the film and all the shady ways the House of Mouse went back on their word, lying straight to the comedian’s face.
With that being said, enjoy this insight as you prepare to watch one of the least creative movies ever made.
