I have such memories of Aladdin as it was out originally when my now 28-year-old son was just a little boy. It was his favorite book and movie. We watched it so many times I think the VHS finally gave out. If we weren’t reading from a book, I was making up stories of him as Aladdin before bedtime.
One of my favorite characters was the genie played by Robin Williams in the animated movie. I was a bit nervous when I found out the live character was going to be played by Will Smith. Not because I don’t like Will Smith (because I do), but more because Robin Williams always had a place in my heart.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love Will Smith as the Genie in the live-action version. The other characters are awesome too and you will want to get your hands on both the animated version ultimate collector’s edition of Aladdin as well as the live-action version! You will not be disappointed.
But since the classic and the “new” version has arrived at my door I may or may not have been watching them and comparing them. But we all know that I don’t spoil movies for you if I can at all help it. So, it might have started a little differently, but there was lots of similarities and a new way of telling the same old storyline. Did I love it? Not exactly but I didn’t dislike it either and there were lots of fun surprises that kept me on my toes and it made me fall into love with the “new” version of the old character all the same.
