Surprisingly, Aladdin’s live-action version under the direction of director Guy Ritchie was enough to meet people’s expectations. Yet when the trailer was launched some time ago, there was doubt and a variety of reactions, especially the appearance of Will Smith as Genie. Interestingly, Smith actually made the film memorable. He was able to bring the fun and silliness of this character in his own way. The chemistry built between him and Aladdin was quite impressive. The dialogue between the two is entertaining and flows well. The dances and songs that were sung also brought an increasingly lively atmosphere. Meanwhile, if you want to watch this movie online, you can watch it on viooz.
One of the most memorable and memorable scenes was for example when Genie introduced Aladdin as Prince Ali since arriving at Agrabah until meeting the Sultan and Jasmine. This iconic scene is presented again with an equally interesting version of the animation.
Aladdin, which can now be seen in the cinema, is indeed the result of remaking Disney animation after 27 years. The treat became part of Disney’s efforts to reproduce their old animations and make them more real.
Before Aladdin, Disney had already presented Cinderella, Beauty and The Beast, and Dumbo in the live-action version. Compared to its predecessor, Aladdin can be said to be quite successful in reviving the animated version to live-action.
The outline of the story taken from the fairytale of 1001 that night is still the same, tells the story of an orphan named Aladdin (played by Mena Massoud) who survives by stealing in the market. He falls in love with the daughter of the Sultan, Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and gets a miracle after finding a magical lamp containing Genie (Will Smith).
Genie will fulfill any of Aladdin’s three requests.
The difference with the animated version, Aladdin’s live-action looks polished to suit more reasonable conditions, while still maintaining existing miracles.
Supported by Disney cinematography which is unquestionable, Aladdin is so pampering, especially for those who are fans of fairy tales. His musical accompaniment, especially the legendary Arabian Night and A Whole New World, completes precisely. Some CGI feels less subtle, but it’s not so annoying.
