Make way for Prince Ali!!
We were invited to watch an advanced screening of the new live action version of Disney’s Aladdin. There was a lot of excitement amongst the crowd who attended the screening. There have been mixed reviews of the film since it was announced that it would be coming to the big screen in a live action adaptation.
I have watched the animated version of Aladdin numerous times with my kids and I was excited to see this version. It’s run time was 2 hours and 8 minutes.
The film a beautifully diverse cast which makes the movie feel authentic. Will Smith has been criticized in the role of Genie, however we found that he brought the role to life and was a wonderful Genie. He performed in song and dance.
Mena Massoudn and Naomi Scott gave life to Aladdin and Princess Jasmine. They had wonderful chemistry on the screen and gave justice to the iconic Alan Menken song, A Whole New World. Jasmine also sings a new song which really defines the character. Marwan Kenzari gave an evil yet fantastic performance as Jafar with Iago as his sidekick. The movie revolves around love, friendship, loyalty and girl power!
The special effects in this film were Incredibly authentic from the cave of wonders to the magic carpet ride! The choreography in the musical numbers were amazing to watch.
Don’t close your eyes because it’s going to take you on a shining, shimmering and splendid experience. The movie comes out this Friday, May 24.
