When history walks and feels great, details appear that dig a deep hole that begins to bury the new Disney bet. To go into details is to give spoilers, but we regret to say that the new plot arcs are weak and contribute nothing to the universe of Aladdin. Watch it now to find out why.
These freedoms that production has taken were directed to Will Smith. He is by far the best-known actor in the cast and, interestingly, he is the one that shines the most. The animated film gave a lot of weight to the genie (whose voice was Robin Williams); however, in this live-action, they give it even more weight.
Despite very specific points, this is not bad because, in the end, the film is saved thanks to the performance of Will Smith. His voice is impeccable when singing, his natural charisma and the great work at the CGI make his interventions the best of the tape.
Of course, if you are one of those people who cannot see Will Smith even in painting, Aladdin is probably not for you. If we think about the songs of the animated film, our head begins to move because we have very special memories with them.
The freedoms we already talked about also apply in this department. They are executed very well and their new sound is proactive, but it will not be to everyone's taste. Now, the original songs are a separate theme because they are simply bad and very inconvenient. Without going into spoilers, one of the key moments of the film is destroyed because it was decided to include a somewhat exaggerated musical number.

Likewise. The protagonist of the film is a decal of Daenerys (played by Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones). Empowerment is a key issue in this era, but when it gets into a shoehorn it is somewhat uncomfortable. In Jasmine's case, this is the case.
Her animated version is brave and a warrior. For live-action, they wanted to increase the dose and went through a lot. In the end, such a beloved animated character becomes a fake and unbelievable one.
Disney is characterized by sparing no weight. Aladdin is the new living test. Every shot that invites us to explore the world of Agrabah is spectacular. The colors, the creation of an entire town and its surroundings leave a mark that not even the sands of time can erase.
Scenes like the one in the cave and the one on the magic carpet are majestic and worth seeing again a couple more times. Finally, the moments when eccentric luxuries make their appearance make the heartbeat with emotion thanks to the colors and quality in every detail. It seems as if Circus du Soleil jumps on the screen with its best show.
In its mission of seeking perfection, all of Aladdin's cast is blatantly beautiful. Apparently, they worried more about getting their best screen angle than offering more outstanding performances. In particular Jafar, which goes directly to the top 10 of the worst villains of a live-action.
In the case of Aladdin, he always looks combed, without sweat and without any trace of dirt in his clothes. With everything and that all the time risks the skin between movements that remember Prince of Persia.
In addition to this, the little resemblance that characters like the Sultan with their original versions sometimes makes us forget that Aladdin is the movie on the screen. Between good and bad points, the tape falls into an abyss that is no longer replenished in its final 25 minutes. It is a sum of bad decisions, terrible scenes and medium performances whose result is that we are glad to see "the end" more than the account.
Aladdin is a visually beautiful film but whose interior lacks many imperfections and even narrative errors that take away value at the end of each character. Watch it online and you'll see.
Choose to give more weight to the music section and certain characters are anchored as bad decisions that the rest of the film must drag. The cycles of day and night are impeccable and traveling to an almost, tangible Agrabah is worth everything. To Disney's bad luck, looking good in any direction is useless when the work, in general, lacks spirit.
