Movie: Aladdin


Disney's Aladdin Teaser Trailer - In Theaters May 24th, 2019

“Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.”

“Aladdin” stars Will Smith as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards. The film is produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich with Marc Platt and Kevin De La Noy serving as executive producers. Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and two new songs written by Menken and songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.The film, which was shot on practical stages in London and on location amidst the stunning desert vistas of Jordan, has a talented creative team helping to bring Agrabah to life, including: director of photography Alan Stewart, production designer Gemma Jackson and costume designer Michael Wilkinson.

At least they didn't completely white wash it.

I won't lie, I do find Ritchie's movies to be quite amusing and entertaining.



Guessing a live-action of Little Mermaid is incoming too?

Jafar's voice sounds terrible. Lots of people not excited about the Genie.

Aladdin looks too old.
Jafar doesn't look sinister enough.
Genie looks lame.

Only thing that looks good is the parrot, monkey, and tiger.

Kids were watching the animation in the car last week. There are a lot of parts of the movie that can only happen in a cartoon, and I was wondering if they would adjust the script more or less to fit in the human element. It looks like they did a lot of adjusting which in a way creates a new story, or at least a version that hasn’t been told.

That would be in contrast to ones like Beauty and the Beast where the script was almost completely the same. How much they didn’t change that one surprised me.

Still looks lame, but it's probably going to make $ for Disney.

I would have preferred they just use Dan Casellaneta and a completely CGI genie. That character is too iconic to be replaced by a person, even if it is a blue cgi person

Agreed. Although ironically the live action Beauty and the Beast came and went, and the animated film is still the one being shown on TV. I would predict this has a similar outcome.
