The kind-hearted Aladdin and a power-hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true. It comes in the possession of Aladdin. He knows exactly what he wants: he wants to see the girl he just met again. And he is doing everything to impress her. In the meantime, Jafar is still trying to steal the lamp.
I can’t remember the last time I watched Aladdin, but I remember that I was a huge fan of Jasmine. She is gorgeous and so is Naomi Scott!
Jasmine needs to find a husband before she takes over the throne from her dad, but only a prince is good enough for him. She doesn’t care, she wants real love.
When I heard that Will Smith was playing the genie, I wasn’t so sure if this was a good idea. But I was so wrong! He was amazing! He was so funny, sassy and just awesome.
Aladdin wishes he was a prince so he can impress Jasmine. The genie makes up a country and he makes Aladdin a prince. When he meets the king and Jasmine, he doesn’t know what to say. That moment was so awkward for him but so funny for me. Aladdin only makes an impression on her when he is just Aladdin and not playing a fake prince.
I love the music in the movie, ‘A whole new world’ is definitely one of my favourite Disney songs. But can we talk about Aladdin and Jasmine singing together, they sound so magical! I really liked Aladdin’s voice.
And yes! Will Smith amazing too. The fresh prince of Bel-Air becomes the genie. I already knew that he was good. I always love his movies, but I think he was on another level in this movie. I laughed so hard about him. The jokes were on point! This is definitely a must-see if you are a Disney fan.
