Aladdin (2019) Rated PG

A street urchin and a vizier both vie for a magic lamp that makes all your dreams come true. Starring Will Smith, Mena Massoud, and Naomi Scott.

I wasn’t impressed by Disney’s live-action remake. The songs are not memorable; they aren’t as strong as those in the animated version. Then you have the acting, which seemed a little stiff in the beginning. It was like the actors didn’t believe what they were saying. As the film continued, I was able to just enjoy the story even though it wasn’t the Disney classic. It’s missing something the animated version has – maybe heart, maybe better acting. It’s a film that is well-produced but definitely different from its animated predecessor, but that doesn’t change that the fact that the film is still worth a watch.
