Power Rangers star still hopeful of a sequel

Prior to the release of Power Rangers, it was reported that Lionsgate had big hopes for the reboot, and was looking at making up to seven movies based upon the long-running TV franchise.

Unfortunately, a $142 million worldwide gross from a budget of $100 million appears to have put those plans to rest; however, speaking to The Wrap, actor Dacre Montgomery – who played the Red Ranger – has revealed that he and the cast are still hopeful of a sequel.

“I think that cast, we’re like family — we have a little group chat — we all would love to do a sequel. I know we’d all be there in a heartbeat and if something does come through the woodwork, which I’m not suggesting it wouldn’t — I actually don’t think it’s out of sight, but if it does, we’d be very excited to do a sequel.”

Joss Whedon Is Still Directing Batgirl, But That Could Change

Earlier today, just before Hollywood gets ready to shut down for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, an intriguing report surfaced that claimed Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Batgirl project would no longer have director Joss Whedon at the helm, but it seems that's not true. That report claimed Warner Bros. made the decision "months ago" not to bring Joss Whedon back for Batgirl, after the Justice League reshoots went on far too long, with a controversial letter written by the director's ex-wife reportedly playing a factor in the studio's "decision" to remove him from Batgirl. However, that initial report from a website dubbed Super Bro Movies has been taken down, while another report citing sources close to the production reveal Joss Whedon is still on board to direct Batgirl.

The report stated that Joss Whedon is currently working on the script for this Batgirl movie and that he is still in fact attached to direct.

Live-action Aladdin movie will feature Jasmine’s pet tiger Rajah

A few days ago it was reported that Rajah, the pet tiger of Jasmine, had been cut from Disney and Guy Ritchie’s upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin, leading to some outcry among fans of the animated classic.

Well, fear not, as Entertainment Weekly has debunked the rumours, confirming with a source close to the production that Rajah will indeed be part of the 2019 film.

The speculation appeared to start after Jasmine actress Naomi Scott spoke to THR about the inclusion of a new character, a handmaiden called Dalia, who will serve as a confidante for the Disney Princess:

“I never realized it, but in the animation, Jasmine is really the only female character — isn’t that crazy?” said Scott. “The Dalia character is so important to this movie because she’s the only other female character. She may be the handmaiden but they’re best friends; they’re so

"Despite speculation that Princess Jasmine's pet tiger won't appear in the Guy Ritchie-directed remake, a source close to production tells EW that Rajah will indeed be a part of the film."

Aladdin Remake Will Shake Up Jasmine’s Character, Pet Tiger Not Included

Disney’s animated movies are known for their animal sidekicks and one of several in 1992’s Aladdin is Raja the Tiger, the faithful yet fierce pet of Princess Jasmine. Unfortunately, fans of the critter will be upset to find out that he won’t appear in the upcoming live-action remake. However, there’s a very good reason for that.

Naomi Scott – who plays Jasmine, opposite Mena Massoud as Aladdin – has revealed that the role of the princess’ only friend will be filled by a new character: a handmaiden named Dalia (played by Nasim Pedrad). The change was made in order to add another female to the male-heavy line-up, as Scott explained.

“I never realized it, but in the animation, Jasmine is really the only female character — isn’t that crazy?The Dalia character is so important to this movie because she’s the only other female character. She may be

Rumor: Dredd’s Olivia Thirlby Linked With Joss Whedon’s Batgirl

A new name has been reportedly linked with Joss Whedon’s upcoming solo movie for Barbara Gordon Aka Batgirl. According to The Daily Popcorn, actress Olivia Thirlby is on the director’s radar for the title role.

Comic book movie fans will know Thirlby from her turn as Judge Anderson opposite Karl Urban in 2012’s Dredd. Her performance in the cult favourite movie was praised at the time, so we know that she has the chops to play a badass character. At age 31, Thirlby is potentially a little older than we expected the on-screen Batgirl to be, as previous reports have stated that Whedon would be drawing from Gail Simone’s college age iteration of the character, but the actress’ youthful looks shouldn’t make it too difficult for her to play younger than her years.

Thirlby’s casting would also make sense based on comments Whedon’s made about

Aladdin And Other Big-Name Disney Films Land New Release Dates In Light Of Star Wars Delay

Aladdin and Episode IX are trading places.

Now that Disney has opted to delay its Star Wars sequel, likely to give the newly-appointed J.J. Abrams more time to hash out a screenplay with Justice League‘s Chris Terrio, it’s been confirmed that Guy Ritchie’s live-action remake will move into the slot previously occupied by Episode IX: May 24th, 2019.

The cameras are already rolling on the set of Ritchie’s Aladdin reboot, after Will Smith took to Facebook just last week to share a behind-the-scenes photo featuring his Genie alongside Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Princess Jasmine), and Marwan Kenzari (Jafar). Navid Negahban was a last-minute addition to the ensemble cast, after it was revealed that the Homeland actor had sealed a deal to play the Sultan.

And despite bringing together a fairly diverse pool of talent, Disney’s latest reimagining came under fire for selecting Billy Magnussen to play Prince Anders,

Disney Under Fire For Casting White Actor In Aladdin

Following in the footsteps of Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, and this year’s box office mega-hit Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin is the latest live-action reimagining to enter development at the Mouse House, which has also drawn up plans for a Jungle Book sequel, Mulan, The Lion King and a Dumbo movie from the inimitable Tim Burton.

Disney Gets Burned for Adding New White Character to Aladdin

  • MovieWeb
Production has finally begun on Disney's live-action remake of Aladdin, which brought the excitement level up only to be taken back down when Disney announced that they had cast Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods) as a new character named Prince Anders, who was not originally in the 1992 animated movie. The move has been criticized by many who claim that Disney only added the character so that they could introduce a Caucasian actor into a movie where there are no other white people. The news comes after Disney was slammed for casting Naomi Scott in the part of Princess Jasmine because she is not from Arab descent, but instead British and Gujarati Indian, which many feel reinforces the stereotype that South Asian and Middle Eastern people are interchangeable.

Why the New White Character in Disney's Live-Action Aladdin Is Infuriating Fans

  • BuzzSugar
Disney's live-action Aladdin reboot based on the 1992 animated film is facing another casting controversy. A few months after reportedly "struggling" to find an actor of color to play the title character (Egyptian-born Canadian actor Mena Massoud was later chosen), Disney has created a brand-new character to add to the beloved story: Prince Anders, played by Ingrid Goes West actor Billy Magnussen. Although Magnussen has some experience playing a prince - he appears as Rapunzel's royal love interest in 2014's Into the Woods - fans are understandably upset with the studio's decision. For many, the move feels like a way for Disney to shoehorn a white character into a story that's celebrated for predominantly featuring Middle Eastern characters. With all the added backlash from the previous casting scandal, which a lot of people still aren't happy about (Jasmine is being played by British actress Naomi Scott, who is of Indian instead
