Who says that Disney Channel movies can't be good?
11 December 2019 | by bread-54393See all my reviews

Forget Will Smith, forget Abu, Disney already had a masterpiece hidden away from us all this time!

Firstly, I would like to comment on the brave move to stick to the source material and set the story in China, whilst still retaining an incredibly white cast. It's a shame to see that Disney felt the need to 'brown up' their actors for the 2019 remake of this smash hit when they could have just hired Zefron lookalikes with no questions asked. Furthermore, their decision to stylize their songs with traditional Middle-Eastern riffs and instruments is a monument to Disney's process of pretending to have diversity just by mashing various cultures together. It really was impressive to see this business model of inclusivity at work in this masterpiece.

Moving on: the sets. I really felt as if I was in Ancient China, not in one of Disney's long forgotten and dilapidated studios. Working together with the aforementioned music and geographically-confused costumes, I struggled to believe that the movie had not been filmed on location.

In fact, the only reason that this does not have 10/10 is because I was confused on one of the character's personalities. Is he a genies, or is he a meanie?
