Aladdin, the clever hero of Agrabah, continues his adventures with the help of his fiancee Princess Jasmine, his pet monkey Abu, Magic Carpet, Iago the greedy parrot, and of course his best friend the semi-cosmic Genie.
A kind-hearted street urchin Aladdin vies for the love of the beautiful princess Jasmine, the princess of Agrabah. When he finds a magic lamp, he uses a genie's magic power to make himself a prince in order to marry her. He is also on a mission to stop the powerful Jafar who plots to steal the magic lamp that could make his deepest wishes come true.Written by
Both this film and the original animated film released the same year as animated film from 20th Century Fox that stars the actor who played Genie. The original 1992 animated film released the same year as FernGully: The Last Rainforest (1992) ,which had Robin Williams voicing Batty Koda whilst the 2019 live action reboot released the same year as Spies in Disguise (2019), which had Will Smith voicing Lance Sterling.

Both Jasmine and Jafar have bound books in their libraries. A Muslim kingdom of that time would have scrolls, as binding was reserved for holy scriptures, such as the Kuran. Book binding wasn't common in the Middle East until after the XIII century. See more »

I know everyone wants to compare this to the Animated version, but don't. Take it as it comes and you will thoroughly enjoy it. It does stay pretty faithful to the animated version I think. Will Smith as the genie could never be the Robyn Williams genie, but I don't think he tries to. He does fantastically well in his own right. Absolutely loved the Prince Ali song where Aladdin enters the city as the prince. Brilliantly colorful spectacle captured really well. Jafar missed a little for me as had lost the smarmy-ness of the animated version. The songs were great and the Aladdin and Jasmine characterization was pretty spot on. I think kids would love this and I would definitely recommend it.
