Disney May Replace Will Smith With Dwayne Johnson As Genie In The Upcoming “Aladdin 2” Project Following The Oscars Slap

The consequences of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars keep hitting him hard as reports claim Disney may replace him with Dwayne Johnson in an iconic role in the upcoming “Aladdin 2” project. Johnson is likely to be handed the role of Genie in “The Aladdin 2” Project.

Will Smith should expect more of such setbacks and work on his anger issues and also stop pleasing his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. Inside The Magic got details;

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star made his Disney debut in Aladdin (2019) and the live-action blockbuster earned over $1 billion at the Hollywood box office. Though Disney has still been using content with Will Smith, it seems there might be a major change to his iconic role as Genie in the upcoming  Aladdin 2 project.

Several outlets are reporting a rumor that Dwayne Johnson could take over the role as Genie in the sequel. Genie, originally played by Robin Williams in the animated film, has been one of the most beloved characters in the world of Disney for 30 years.

Several Will Smith projects have been canceled or postponed since the incident and Disney has not provided an official update to offer any clarity on if he will remain in the role or if the rumors of a replacement could be true. At Universal Orlando, Smith is still the narrator on the beloved attraction MEN IN BLACK: Alien Attack. Since the incident at the Oscars, however, many fans have said the attraction “just isn’t the same.”

Dwayne Johnson’s most recent Disney project saw him play the role of skipper Frank Wolff in Jungle Cruise (2021). Johnson was also the voice of Maui in Moana (2016).

This is why you always have to think before you react.

Jada had Will Smith so messed up in the head that she is costing him tons of money and his reputation. It is sad to see.
