Disney’s animated classic Aladdin has been reimagined for the big screen as an energetic and exciting live-action version of the film. Aladdin has been one of the most famous and popular fairy tales of the Thousand and One Nights since the 18th century. It’s the story of the penniless street rat Aladdin, the brave and determined Sultan’s daughter, Princess Jasmine, and the Spirit who may be the key to their future.

Aladdin is eager to leave his life of petty crime on the streets of Agraba behind and believes he is destined for greater things. He finds a magic lamp inhabited by a wish-granting spirit and uses it to win Jasmine’s heart while the crooked sorcerer is throwing blocks at the cart. Directed by Guy Ritchie. As actors, e.g. Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott.

For media educator

Disney’s animated film Aladdin, released in 1992, is one of the studio’s most successful films. The original story of Aladdin can be found in the famous 14th-century collection of Middle Eastern folktales, The Thousand and One Nights. Disney’s remake brings the fairytale-like and fast-paced story of the original animated film to life with real actors, not forgetting the musical numbers. The story of an orphan boy who lives on the streets and grows up to be a young man, whose path leads by chance to fairy-tale riches and finally to fairy-tale love, is familiar from many films.

The new Aladdin follows very much in the footsteps of the animated film, making the film easy to follow for those familiar with the story. The film progresses at a leisurely pace, sometimes the story rolling along familiar lines is boosted with chase scenes set in the streets of the city of Agraba. The familiar characters from the original film are included, right down to the good-hearted pet monkey Abu and the mischievous parrot minion Jago. More speed and a sense of danger have been brought into the staged version, which seems more impressive in the staged version than the animation (especially when viewed on the big screen).

For this reason, the film is not suitable for very young viewers. In particular, Aladdin’s visit to the magic cave in search of the lamp and Grand Vizier Jafar’s lust for power peaking are both long, intense scenes that can not only bring excitement, but also frightening. While color, speed and humor have been added to the remake for entertainment, the story itself leaves a wish for airing out and updating to a more modern version that would offer a kick and a grip for today’s diverse audience.
