Now that March has arrived, Walt Disney Studios’ 2019 films are rolling out! Of course one of the big Disney movies this year is Aladdin, a live-action reimagining of the 1992 classic animated film. The original movie was such a phenomenal hit, that my expectations are set high for this adaptation! Today I’m sharing with you the new Aladdin official trailer. Before I tell you my thoughts, take a look.
DISNEY’S ALADDIN OFFICIAL TRAILER
Okay. Say it with me now…“WOW!!!” I know there has been a lot of controversial talk about Will Smith playing the iconic Genie. But after seeing that glimpse, can we please give him the rightful chance he deserves? Of course he’s not Robin Williams, but let’s face it. If Robin Williams were still here today, do you think he’d fit the live-action version of the Genie? Now my answer might be unpopular, but I’m telling you, “NO, he would not.” The 1992 animated film? That’s your Robin Williams “Genie.” The 2019 live-action film? Will Smith is your “Genie of the Laaaaaaamp!!”
