Disney is preparing to release the newest in its line of live-action reimaginings of its animated classics: a remake of 1992's Aladdin.

Fans have been chomping at the bit for more information on the new film.


The live action film stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine and Will Smith as The Genie. The role was portrayed by the late Robin Williams in the animated version.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
