“Aladdin” Review

A kind-hearted street urchin and a power-hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true.

I got the 4k disk from Disney for free as a part of their “Movies at Home” reward section of the Disney Points system. This life action remake is slowly growing on me, but still has a long way to go to climb the pedestal that I have the original animated version on. The problem is that Robin Williams was such a large part of the original film that making another version of the story without him is difficult to do because no matter who you have filling that Genie role they’re going to inevitably be compared to the indomitable actor that broke the mold back in 1992. Will Smith does it justice and I think there was a good decision to move as much of the focus as possible from the differences between the two actors and back to the lead roles of Jazmin and Aladdin as played by Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott to great effect.
