It's been out for over a week, and I still haven't seen the new Disney Live Action Aladdin. I am seeing it tonight, and I am VERY excited. I liked the live action Beauty and the Beast movie a lot, LOVED their live action Cinderella, and while it's not always a great idea to re-make something that was so well done the first time around, I think this live action Disney trend is so much fun. It doesn't take anything away from the animated films, but just gives us more from these stories and characters that we love. The only movie that I'm a bit worried about is the live action Lion King (which comes out July 19th). This one is different because it isn't humans being cast. I hope that the switch from animation to CGI works out OK, but still very excited to see it. The cast looks great though.
This week Disney also announced a live action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. They are currently negotiating a director for the film, and a screenwriter, but in the mean time... we decided to cast it on the afternoon show today. Who would you like to see in the upcoming live action Snow White movie?
Sarah from Marlton said, "Lily Collins would be a great Snow White."
Aubrey from Berwyn said Kevin Hart as Grumpy.
John from Perkasie said Danny Devito as Grumpy.
(Both would work!)
Christina and Donna from Marlton, NJ said Katy Perry as Snow White.
Lilly from Exton, PA said Maisie Williams as Snow White. (Interesting choice. I can't wait to see her in something other than Game of Thrones. She's so good!)
Kirsten from Newark said Lucy Hale as Snow White. (I had to google who she was, but YES!)
And mirror mirror on the wall (or text platform).... my favorite suggestion of them all.... was from Firefighter Jamie, from Royersford PA. He said Elle Fanning would be a great Snow White. I completely agree!
Who would you cast if you could? Chime in on the BEN-FM Facebook Page. Cast the whole movie if you like!
