My take on these movies
As someone that grew up with Aladdin I was super excited to see how the new Aladdin would be and how well Will Smith would embody the role of the Genie. In watching the original movie again before seeing the new one I have to say that the original Aladdin still was a ton of fun and Robin Williams was over the top in his portrayal of the Genie. The cartoon is able to create a world that allowed all viewers to suspend their belief and get lost during the movie. Even after all of these years I still found myself getting lost in the movie!
The new movie was similar to the first in many ways, but also different too. I felt that the actors in the movie did a great job of embodying their characters. Will Smith created a new Genie and for me it was not a question of was he as good as Robin Williams as his characterization of the Genie was very different than Robin Williams, in a good way. The movie has great music and even new songs too. The movie is a non-stop adventure and you will love how the movie begins and ends and how the whole movie is tied together, I know that I did!
