Live Action Prequel film about Genie in the works at Disney

I sort of saw this one coming.  Disney hired a team of writers to pen a live action prequel movie based on Genie from the beloved 1992 animated film.

Called Genie the fillm is written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift and produced by  Tripp Vinson. The film is said to focus on the genies and how Aladdin’s genie came trapped inside the lamp. If succesful a out right remake of the Aladddin film itself is an option. Personally I’m not excted at this sequal/prequel or remakes of classic 2d animated films. I rather see Disney to make new fresh films be either live action or (2d) animated.

Forget About Love (Live Action)

It’s been ages since I posted something here. It’s not that I lost interest in the blog or Aladdin, I do though I admit it’s less that say 2-3 years ago. The thing is I hardly come across anything news worthy. Well I got something for you today on the last day of 2011. Browsing YouTube I stumbled upon two ladies who made a habit out of reinacting Disney songs in live action. The result is fun and looks great it’s obivous they took their time to plan put the songs and not burst into random sillyness.

Their A Friend Like Me is also worth a watch though I personally didn’t like it that much.
