Will Smith Might Lose his Role to The Rock in the “Aladdin” Sequel!
After the smack, it appears that Disney is not pleased with Will Smith. Smith played the legendary figure known as the Genie, which the late great Robin Williams had previously played in animation back in the 1990s.
The movie became a huge hit, grossing over $1 billion at the box office. However, it seems that the latest Oscars event has alarmed Disney executives, who have reportedly made a significant decision about the “Aladdin” sequel.
We will take this as a rumours because the source from two weeks ago is not a very reliable one. Despite claiming to have some of the greatest scooping sources in the business, Giant Freakin Robot appears to be a modest entertainment news site. They claim that Disney is already attempting to repair the harm caused by Smith.
Knowing Disney, it wouldn’t be shocking to learn that they are actively seeking a perfect replacement to step in and play the Genie in the upcoming “Aladdin” movie. Many people will be surprised by the actor who is reportedly in talks to take on an unnamed role in the film, but if this rumours is accurate, he would be a fantastic pick.
This source claims that Disney and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are in negotiations for Johnson to appear in the upcoming “Aladdin” film in an undefined capacity. The timing of this information is strangely coincidental, even though they don’t confirm he is currently in discussions to play the Genie. Johnson sounds like the ideal replacement for Will Smith if Disney does behave as they have in the face of scandals.
Recall that Dwayne previously performed beautifully in a musical part in the movie “Moana.” All of this hasn’t been confirmed, though, so we’ll have to wait to get more precise details. What Disney has in mind for Will Smith in the wake of his scandal has not yet been officially confirmed.
