WOO-Hit-monkey's getting his due!
Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaammit, why did you have to put that glorious idea in my head?!Someone else mentioned it and now I can't get over it.
Terry Crews would have made a much better Genie and now that's the movie I want.

I'd like to add Jeff Goldblum to the list.Other people I also think would have been interesting to see as Genie:

They are supposedly steering pretty far away from the Williams performance to be more in line with the current style from the on-going Aladdin Broadway musical (which is pretty great actually, I saw it in October). It's a bit less random (but still a bit wacky and definitely funny) and more heartfelt.Personally, I don’t think that either of them are really “right” for the role ... IF the idea was to find someone who could fill Williams’ itty-bitty living space, that is. I feel like Smith was chosen by whoever did the casting mainly because they were looking for someone who could really fill Genie’s big musical numbers.
Not sour enough to stop working with them. He did a number of projects with Disney, both Genie and not-Genie related after the issue, so I'm going to assume he was sated by the apology.I know he was part of A3, but I imagine he was still a bit sour about the whole thing, Picasso or no Picasso.

Disney to close “Vault” for good as it moves film library to streaming serviceIf Disney is willing to stop this "Disney Vault" nonsense and put EVERYTHING... and I mean -EVERYTHING- that they've released on their service, I'd consider it.
It’s not all sunlight and roses, though:While the debut date is still unknown, we now know that the service will include the entire Disney movie library shortly after the service launches. [...] Disney CEO Bob Iger [...] point[ed] at the retirement of Disney's longstanding "vault." [...] "The service... is going to combine what we call library product, movies, and television, with a lot of original product as well, movies and television," Iger said. "And at some point fairly soon after launch, it will house the entire Disney motion picture library, so the movies that you speak of that traditionally have been kept in a 'vault' and brought out basically every few years will be on the service. And then, of course, we’re producing a number of original movies and original television shows as well that will be Disney-branded."
Also there is no word on whether any (older) content will be sanitized in an attempt to protect Disney’s image.In 2017, Disney announced that it would remove its content from Netflix to prepare for the launch of Disney+ in 2019. The picture became clearer as Disney clarified that its movies and properties that it acquired, like Star Wars and Marvel films, would also disappear from Netflix. That content and other licensed properties will likely also stream exclusively on Disney+.
