Movie Review: Aladdin

I loved this movie!

The animated Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney movies with one of my favorite soundtracks. When the live-action remake was announced, I was concerned.

How dare I have such little faith in Disney!

This movie was great! The story was true to the animated version. There were some changes-most for the better. Jasmine is a much stronger character. She even has a song that actress Naomi Scott completely killed! There are lyrical changes to some of the songs. Will Smith adds his special touch to the role of the Genie and the songs Prince Ali and Friend Like Me. I did miss seeing Princess Jasmine being put in an hour glass but the ball room scene more than made up for it.

Aladdin was so much fun! I only hope Disney does as well with the Lion King which comes out in July.
