Was Aladdin one of your favorite Disney animated movies?
As a huge fan of the original Aladdin I admit I was a bit nervous to see how this one would measure up, but not anymore. Not since I saw how the Aladdin trailer brings a whole new world to the big screen.
He dropped the full length trailer for Disney’s Live-Action Aladdin movie, which magically appears in theaters on May 24th.
After watching the trailer a bunch of times I realized my nerves were for no reason, because this Aladdin is going to take us on a live action magic carpet ride that we won’t want to end.
Have you seen the video I am talking about?
Take a look here at how the Aladdin trailer brings a whole new world to the big screen:
So, what did you think?
Did you get chills in a new yet nostalgic type of way like I did over this Aladdin trailer?
Lets talk about this whole new world:
- There was originally some questions surrounding whether Will Smith’s Genie character would be blue, than there was controversy over him being “too blue”. This full length trailer seems to have quieted the critics and made the masses happy thanks to Genie finding the right shade, although he won’t be blue throughout the entire movie.
- Remember how Jafar was always the sinister looking villain? Well Marwan Kenzari, who is playing the role of Jafar in the Aladdin live action movie is anything but evil looking. In fact he is already being labeled as “hot Jafar“.
- Alan Menken, the original movie’s composer, returns for the score. Yes, I am excited for the original songs, but I can’t wait to hear the two BRAND NEW songs.
- Aladdin’s sidekick Abu seems to go from being sassy, outspoken and animated to a little more sweetly subdued in his new CGI form.
- Another observation I made from watching the trailer is that this Aladdin favors shirts, instead of being bare chested under his vest.
- There will be at least two (that we know of right now) new characters we will get to meet in the Aladdin live action movie that weren’t in the animated version.
Now that you see how Aladdin aims to bring a whole new live action world to the big screen, lets get ready to fly off to Agrabah, where things aren’t always as they seem, and it’s all so magical, because you ain’t never had a friend like me.
