Aladdin Movie Review

September 18, 2019

 The beloved classic “Aladdin” is just one of several films that have been adapted in the past couple of years. What people have come to see as a classic was once again put on the big screen, this time using real life motion scenes with actors versus animation scenes.


The movie focuses on Aladdin, played by Mena Massoud, who grows up having to steal to get by, and although a criminal to some, he is also seen as a loveable and human character. His path crosses with Princess Jasmine, played by Naomi Scott. After getting the magic lamp and letting out Genie, who is played by Will Smith, Aladdin becomes hyper aware of his status as a peasant versus the princesses’ status, and uses his three wishes to try and win her over.


The move stayed very close to the original one, and one really great thing about the film
