Let's just get right to the teaser trailer, then talk afterwards:
Okay, so I'm really excited about this. I think it's because of all the Disney animated films from the "golden age," "Aladdin" is my favorite. I'll never get tired of it...the music, the jokes, Robin freaking Williams.
I think what intrigues the the most here is what Will Smith is gonna bring to the role of Genie. The Broadway musical version of "Aladdin" just punts most of what Robin Williams did, knowing they could never recreate what he did. It stands up on its own merits, and I'm excited to see what Will has to offer. I think this could be great.
This is the first of the "live-action" remakes from Disney that I'm really pumped about. I'll be seeing this in the theater.
