Whitewashing[change]

Does this really need a racist section? Senior editors need to take a stand against this sort of soapbox behaviour. If they are going to be consistent the wikipedia entry for the Thor movie series needs to mention Heimdall is portrayed by someone that is not what you would expect a Viking god to look like for example. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 163.47.106.116 (talk) 02:00, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Sure, just provide some examples of the Thor/Heimdall issue being covered by reliable sources. Bakilas (talk) 06:13, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
You're missing the point - it would be trivial to find reliable sources for the Thor/Heimdall issue but that would just needlessly clutter that article just like in this case. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 163.47.106.5 (talk) 23:09, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
"Anders" is a name of Scandinavian origin, and so is "Magnussen". I don't see how it's whitewashing? It is not far-fetched that a beautiful Arabic princess would have suitors from other parts of the world! --Luka1184 (talk) 16:53, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
Luka1184: You are missing the point. The issue is not that a white actor is being used for "Anders", the issue is that they took an existing story and went out of their way to add a white character.
More to the point: Wikipedia discusses it as whitewashing because independent reliable sources discuss it as whitewashing. If Metro UK, Fox News and The Washington Post said that a horse's tail is a leg, Wikipedia would dutifully report that horses have five legs. Wikipedia exists to report what independent reliable sources say, not what Wikipedia's editors believe is true. - SummerPhDv2.0 12:58, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
Disney, and many other people, did pretty much the same thing when they made many of the Asians characters Arabic, I guess, so yeah, you're right. Find some sources, and we should be able to get something done from there.--Luka1184 (talk) 23:34, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
Meanwhile, what I actually see in message boards is anger at the brownwashing of the genie. Amazing how those journalists are out of touch with regular people. --177.42.175.217 (talk) 08:39, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

CinemaScore[change]

There should be a better source used in the "Critical response" section. According to List of Disney live-action remakes of animated films#Critical and public reaction every live action adaptation of a Disney film except one has been in the A grade. This includes Alice Through the Looking Glass which was a box office bomb, and is the lowest rating on the list. It just concerns me that the source isn't that diverse in this particular context. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 01:49, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

Just to clarify...I am not saying the source is unreliable, I am saying that it is problematic when it comes to standing out as exceptional. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 01:55, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

Going Out on a Limb Here[change]

Has there been any criticism at all from critics revolving Marwen Kenzari, and his casting and portrayal as Jafar?

Because as far as I remember, a lot of people that I’ve talked with loved the movie, but found Kenzari to be the wrong person to portray Jafar and that his portrayal made the character less than intimidating. Austin012599 (talk) 21:18, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Edit request[change]

Please delete “but later surpassing by The Lion King 4 days later” in the Box Office section, as it is not clear what “The Lion King” surpassed “Aladdin” on but the source does not mention anything about surpassing. Panarain (talk)
