"Aladdin thinks this woman is the princess" handmaiden, not realizing she's actually the princess, Jasmine (played by Naomi Scott).
The results are understandably mixed in this remake as Williams is succeeded by Will Smith and the film developed with that supplantation of very different '90s pop energy is a chimerical amalgamation of Smith's personality, director Guy Ritchie's particular predilections and failings as a director, enhanced roles for female characters that play like gangbusters, and the same sorts of exhausted nostalgia-baiting we've come to expect from these Disney live-action remakes. When Jafar betrays him, Aladdin manages to get the lamp back where he discovers it holds the Genie (Will Smith), who will grant him three wishes.
"It's something I was missing in my childhood so I'm proud of the cast and the casting that Guy and Disney put together", Massoud said. While Richie's visuals are nothing to write home about, the film is fine looking if feeling a little unfinished at times. The role was originally voiced by the late Robin Williams in the 1992 version.
So for those familiar with the animated classic, the story of Aladdin is known, it is essentially a rags to riches story that follows the exploits of the titular Diamond in the Rough, a character that doesn't seek power, he is just a good and charming street rat played wonderfully by relative newcomer Mena Massoud.
Eight-time Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Oscar-winning lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and includes two new songs written by Menken and lyrics by Oscar and Tony Award-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Kidding. (Well. not really.) The real and most important question that I and many others have is: why is Aladdin wearing so many damn clothes?
"Even though he has this fantastic connection with Jasmine early on just by being himself, and even though we see him as amusing and charming and capable of anything, what is so relatable is that he just doesn't realize it yet", Eirich added.
Genie opens and closes the live-action remake as part of an emotional arc for the character that wasn't present in the original and, if it wasn't for some questionable CGI, Disney and Smith would have it nailed. It never quite gets out from underneath Robin Williams' shadow, but Disney clearly doesn't want it to.
Actor Will Smith is in love with the world of Bollywood and says he asked director Guy Ritchie to add a touch of it in forthcoming film "Aladdin". The same goes for Naomi Scott's Jasmine. That way he can impress Jasmine and win her heart. Their love story is doomed as Aladdin is too ashamed of his background. Not only did it take Jasmine and Aladdin on the most romantic date night ever-the carpet also gave us personality and a bit of snark.
Instead, the first real scene of her we get in the new version is when she's already arrived in the marketplace and meets Aladdin. The remake brings its own flavor to the table with a few twists and new songs. Like the many jewels and gold pieces in the Cave of Wonders, Aladdin is a hollow gem that falls apart as soon as you touch it.
