Make way, Aladdin is here! Directed and co-written by Guy Ritchie, with the adventurous spirit and warmth as its predecessor as well as some new and fun twists to the Disney classic.
Mena Massoud plays a charismatic Aladdin swinging through Agrabah in an acrobatic performance with Naomi Scott portraying an empowered Jasmine with a newfound voice and new horizons to pursue. The couple share engaging chemistry and musical numbers that don’t disappoint, with all the classic songs that we all know by heart and new additions including an original song with lyrics from La La Land Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
To add to its already impressive cast, with big shoes to fill, Will Smith takes over the part previously eternalised by the late Robin Williams, to deliver a fresh, extravagant Genie with humour and wisely putting his own spin to the character, never trying to imitate the inimitable Williams.
Throughout extravagant musical numbers and smartly choreographed action scenes, this fantastic film is above all a very entertaining experience, one that you'll easily be transported to. Maybe on a magic carpet ride...
