All were applause when Will Smith took on the role of the genie of the lamp in Aladdin and it was expected that he would continue playing it in a second part of this Disney film.
However, different international media have shown that this role -which was so loved by the public- could pass into the hands of the charismatic Dwayne Johnson, after the slump that Smith has suffered after the embarrassing slap he gave Chris Rock at the Oscar awards gala ceremony, a month and a half ago.
This year’s best actor – an award that was given to him a few minutes after shocking the film industry by stopping to hit Rock in the middle of the ceremony – has been seeing how projects are canceled.
Productions on streaming platforms such as Netflix, as well as successful films that were about to be recorded, such as one more installment of Bad Boys, have been postponed or cancelled. And he also hasn’t received public support from the only person he was expected to: his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
what of Dwayne Johnson in the role of the genie from Aladdin 2 it is still a rumour. However, it is undeniable that there is a fear on the part of the industry in supporting an artist who left the biggest party in the industry marked for him forever. About the Disney production, it is said that it will be released in the year 2025.
