The amount of work this took, I tell you.

I had to make sure he was buried in Leicester's Greyfriars monastery in 1485, arrange for the monastery site to be turned into a private residence following its dissolution in 1538, post as a property speculator from Lincolnshire to buy the site of the now ruined church and then sell it to the mayor of Leicester in the late 16th century, get rid of the pillar marking the site of the original burial and then tell John Speed some ridiculous story about the body being thrown into the Soar in the 17th century, convince the mayor to hang on to the property until the 18th century, make sure that the later 18th-century redevelopment of the area missed the burial site, convince the Victorians to narrowly miss the burial site when further redeveloping the site, ensure that when the County Council built its new offices in the 1930s it left space for a car park round the back, and then sneak in at night in the 2000s to paint a big fat 'R' on the burial site - and then I still had to drip feed information about Dick to that slightly mad Langley woman so she could convince the University of Leicester Archaeology Service to actually have a look at the site marked by that big R.

Nary a day's rest for 530 years, I tell you.

So the newest Aladdin trailer actually looks kinda fun. I'm still sure this trend of remaking old Disney movies is pointless but this is one I'll probably buy a ticket to see.

I'm surprised they didn't slap a few white people into it just to whip of the free marketing that controversy brings.

I want a live-action Treasure Planet remake, tbh; Treasure Planet is my favorite animated Disney film (not including Pixar).
