    Saw on Disney + and it just tried to live up to the original and failed.

    Just like the animated movie, but more realistic, amazing music, colors, performances (specially Robert Williams, very authentic and funny). Definitely one of my favorites Disney Films of all times, you´ll enjoy from the beginning til the end, because it captures your attention. Many of my friends recommended it to me, and it took me a long time to actually watch it because I really liked the original one and I wasn´t sure if I wanted to watch this new version, but every minute was worth it, it shows an extraordinary culture very different (at least than mine), loved the outfits, the team work of the cast (great chemistry between the actors), the stages; You will feel like in a concert with the AMAZING music and dances. enjoyable for kids and adults, highly recommended.

    In my opinion, Aladdin is the best Disney's live action, until now.

    Great, with excellent plot, dancing and singing arrangement. Story are compact, with nice soundtrack and songs. Suitable casting for the movie

    (23.05.2020): Wall Disney sempre Wall Disney! As músicas não envolvem porém não chega a constranger. A atuação dos personagens é mediana! Will Smith traz uma força para o filme(caso contrario nem assistiria!). O filme brilha mais pelas cenas: CGI massa!

    The actors can't act. The scenes aren't memorable. And while I normally enjoy Will Smith, his "rapping" is just awkward and embarrassing. The best thing this film does is make one want to watch the OG, and wish Robin Williams was still alive. I've watched this specifically on Disney+, but that's not an option to click. So this review probably wont be verified by Shilltomatoes.

    Pros of the movie: Will Smith's portrayal of the genie and Dalia's whit. Cons: The entire rest of the movie. Jaffar was weak and not as evil as he was supposed to be. The only shred of evil and maniacal behavior was shown when he kicked the person down the hole in the beginning of the movie. The rest of the movie he just goes on being a boring vanilla bad guy obsessed with destroying a neighboring city that gets little to no reason why he wants to destroy it so badly. The cave of wonders scene was terrible. The animation made it look fancy but did nothing to help the movie. The whole romance between Jasmin and Aladdin was chemically not there at all. The music was noticeably auto-toned and the iconic music was poorly sung and put together. What happened to the "Whole New World" song where they go around the world on A MAGIC CARPET to Greece, China and the Egypt? We got grubby dark scenes instead and poor singing. The acting felt forced throughout the entire movie. I.E. The Yam Jam scene. There was no back story behind the whole "both of our moms sang us the same song before bed". There was so many plot holes added to this movie that there didn't need to be. I'm all for women's rights and making sure women get their fair share, but what was with the Sultan being like, "My daughter can be the Sultan because shes strong." felt more like a cop-out and pandering for the female audience to show a strong female role in a Disney movie rather than staying true to the original animation. This movie is out of sync with the animated movie that it leaves you feeling disappointed after finishing the movie. It leaves you that feeling of not ever wanting to watch it on your own free will. But you would only watch it on television while you are bored and would just watch it because it might be the only thing on television at that moment. This had all the terrible directive skill of M. Night Shyamalan when he made "The Last Airbender".

    Always love to watch Will Smith and sing along but really why wouldn't you just watch the original?

    Disney actually made a great live action movie. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. Will Smith did an outstanding job as the genie and he made it his own performance rather than copying Robin and I loved Mena Massoud's version of Aladdin. The intro of Arabian Nights is outstanding and much better than the original; it's longer and I love the setting and costumes. It really made you feel like you were part of the Arab World. I also really enjoyed the songs: One Jump Ahead, Prince Ali and Friend Like Me are all great and Naomi Scott did a great job with Jasmine but now for the cons: I didn't buy Jafar here. He just didn't capture the maliciousness and ambition of the original Jafar and the amount of autotune in A Whole New World and Naomi Scott's voice is crazy and while I didn't mind Jasmine being a more confident woman, giving her a new song was unnecessary and in a way, I feel like Jasmime had a much bigger role in this movie than needed and this movie didn't change much from the original Aladdin but I'd still consider this one of Disney's better remakes and very rewatch able. Overall: 9/10 (A)
