I know they don't have to, I guess I'm cynical cuz Hollywood does it so often...
I know as a black women, it's usually a mix light skin chick representing..when most black women are brown skin..
Which character though? I doubt most casting directors are out there at auditions measuring skin pigmentation, nor should they be in most cases.

And Disney's version isn't even set in a real place either, so other arguments about ethnicity aren't on the most sound footing either

I don't think they have to, is my point. She doesn't look Irish or something lol. Will Smith as Genie sort of sounds funny, but I'm not sure why they wouldn't do CG to make him blue.
He confirmed he's blue in the movie itself, special effects haven't been finished yet so they're not showing it.

Naomi Scott is from British and (Gujarati) Indian descent anyway, so there's nothing wrong with the casting in the end either. The guy playing Aladdin is Egyptian iirc, so it all seems to fit.

Seeing things like these, I‘m sure glad I don‘t care at all about movies. People getting triggered over actors‘ skin color :grumble

Never heard anything about that.
I remember something like that....
@GrySun,, i remember you taking something like that with lawl

Can they just stop remaking every movie
It's holywood, they will keep doing it until eveybody hates it

A porn film which one should most certainly not watch on a full stomach

I don't understand how that movie got any award or good comment.....
Arab people are not all brown like indian people tho, some are light. Idk that girl looked good to me.
Arabs are actually pale as europians and most has blue eyes, when i saw the syrian in my class i thought he is german or something.

Ah, I understand what's like to get annoyed with how badly some groups are portraited tho '-' It kills me to see brazilian characters speaking portuguese from Portugal or even with a spanish accent. In Jessica Jones, when some brazilian guys were fixing her door... idk wth they were talking but that defo wasn't something we understand here '-'"
Those are minor in the end, but yeah...
Oh! And I recall Hardy said that Gustavo Fring, a Chilean character, could barely speak Spanish xD

Ah '_' we basically call any muslim as arab here, Ik it's terrible ç.ç so yeah, was considering all groups, from different countries, including the ones in the North of Africa - which, like the rest, are also not fully made of brown people.

I don‘t remember there was ever any big confirmation. They were friends so naturally they got shipped(a law around here), and hosted mafia games together and all. Not sure what ever happened to Kat, but afaik they‘re not together, prolly never were.

Been a while since I saw lawl too. While Copan is presumably very busy.

You probably haven't watched it - the acting and cinematography are phenomenal

The director truly displayed a talent for getting uncomfortably close - it's quite unnerving.
The camera angles somehow make you feel like you are almost there, right in the action...

David Lynch really could have learned a thing or two from that director
