Will Smith Confirmed as Genie in Disney's Live-Action Aladdin Remake

What do you think about this casting choice? I think Jim Carrey would have been a great option too, but he's not as big as Will Smith these days. I think Will Smith will bring a very unique, but hopefully familiar feel to Robin Williams' legendary character.

It will be interesting. I do not believe he is going to be able to top Robin Williams when he was the voice of Genie, though.

Pretty cool that a Canadian will be playing Aladdin.

Yuck. That sounds awful. I like Smith, but just leave any and all roles previously played by Williams alone. Please, I am begging you. Haha.
