Is Will Smith really going to be replaced by the Red Notice star?

The King Richard star has portrayed an iconic character of Genie in Aladdin. Initially, he was afraid of touching the role because the Dead Poets Society star, Robin Williams, originally played it. However, the viewers loved Smith as Genie. But now, because of the Oscar incident, he has lost many of his projects, including the possibility of losing his role in Aladdin 2.

It is reportedly said that his role of Genie might be transferred to the Red Notice star, Dwayne Johnson. It is rumored that Aladdin 2 may land on the big screen in 2025 with Guy Ritchie as the director. If this rumor is true, it would be a big shock for Smith and fans who loved him as Genie.

    Dwayne Johnson would make a terrible genie. Will Smith was awesome as the genie in Aladdin.

    The Rock is good, but not that good. I think they need to leave the Role with Smith. He knows the part and would be more believable. Where they would have to rewrite the role to fit the rocks style.

    Leave Will Smith in Aladdin II. He is great ! Like Dwayne Johnson but no way can he do better in this role. It’s time to quit punishing Will. Just move on.
