This weekend, Aladdin joins Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, and Dumbo as Disney animated classics to get a live-action remake. The Mouse House isn’t stopping there, both, with The Lion King, Lady and the Tramp, Mulan, Pinocchio, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and The Little Mermaid. There’s one post-Renaissance film (which began with Mermaid) that licensed Disney Legend Alan Menken thinks gained’t ever get a reimagining, nevertheless.
“I don’t know if we’ll ever be capable to do Pocahontas, I feel that story goes to be tough. With fashionable sensibilities, it’d be arduous – you’re going to offend anyone – so I don’t know,” the nine-time Oscar successful composer, together with for “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid and “A Whole New World” from Aladdin, instructed Digital Spy. “But I’m happy to come back to these films and continue to add to them.” Menken is correct to name a live-action Pocahontas film tougher than, say, remaking the film the place two mice journey to the Australian Outback, however to not think about it as a result of “you’re going to offend somebody” is a peculiar protection. We’re not speaking Song of the South right here.
Menken additionally mentioned the revised lyrics within the new Aladdin:
“It is no longer ‘Sunday salaam.’ It’s ‘Friday salaam.’ Things got corrected, certain things got removed. Like, we used to have [in the lyrics to ‘Arabian Nights’], ‘The heat is intense/It’s barbaric/But hey, it’s home.’ But originally, what Howard [Ashman, Menken’s late collaborator] and I wrote actually was, ‘Where they cut off your ear if they don’t like your face/It’s barbaric/But hey, it’s home.’ That went fast. We thought it was funny. But I don’t think Arabic people thought it was all that funny, so that got changed. Then the word ‘barbaric’ came out. It’s a filter, you have to look at what’s happening today. Values go upside-down in a blink. It’s inevitable, you have got to take that really seriously.” (Via)
If Will Smith doesn’t sing-rap the lyrics to “Arabian Nights,” what’s the purpose.
Aladdin opens this Thursday night time, May 23.
