Trivia

Unlike the constantly shirtless Aladdin in the original film and the Broadway show, Mena Massoud's Aladdin in this version does not appear shirtless and is completely covered up for the entire film. Ever since the release of the first look and trailer, costumer designer Michael Wilkinson revealed that it was "the question on everyone's lips." He said the reasoning was that "We thought having so much skin showing on Aladdin for the whole film would be quite distracting on a human actor as opposed to a cartoon character. We also felt that once you make that leap from cartoon into live-action, you really have to make some adjustments." The super-hit Broadway Aladdin show with live actors replicates the original movie's look and shows Aladdin bare-chested with actors who sport bulging abs and pecs and critics of this movie said that covering up Michael Wilkinson was a conservative move by Disney. Actor Mena Massoud meanwhile is a gym junkie and posted several shirtless pictures on social media during the filming and promotion of the film showing off his rippling physique even though it was not featured in the film.

I don't understand why the critics are bashing on this one.
24 May 2019 | by talajanoSee all my reviews

I honestly didn't know what I was going into and it was such a delightful surprise! It really exceeded my expectations and I had fun during the whole movie. Critics are really being harsh and I can't believe that beauty and the beast was more critically praised. The movie was so bland and boring while this one has so much energy and life to it. The characters had amazing chemistry with each other and the lines were delivered smoothly. The two things I was worried about that subsided as soon as the movie started are: 1- Jafar's character: Marwan tries his best to make but the material he's given isn't strong enough. I wish they developed his character more. However, I didn't mind the change they did it with his character as it fits more with this version. 2- Cultural representation: The trailers made the movie look like a production from bollywood. Not hating on the Indian culture, but it really annoyed me as Arab to see a Middle Eastern/Arabic folk tale that we all know long before Disney introduced it to the world to be represented in a fully different culture. Fortunately, the movie looks and feels way more Arabian such Arabic writings here and there, hearing some people speaking Arabic briefly, the names and appearance of the people of Agrabah and of course the amazing score! Although there are some slight hints of India/South Asia in the clothing and dancing, but I didn't mind that at all.

I would've give it a 10 if the cinematography was better. This is my only issue with movie as it looked like high budget TV soap opera in some scenes.

Don't miss on this one! You'll have fun.
