Aladdin (2019) Trailer Review · 9:17pm Mar 22nd, 2019

What’s up, you guys?

Once again, I’m back with another trailer review.

Today, I will be making my third trailer analysis by analyzing the latest preview for the upcoming 2019 live-action Aladdin film.

First things first, take a look:

So, now that you’ve seen it for yourselves, I shall get on with my thoughts:

You might be asking “Did you see the last trailer that gave a first time glimpse of Will Smith as the Genie?”

The answer to that question would be “Yes. I have seen that one.”

Like a lot of people, I wasn’t pleased with how the last one played out, and I didn’t think the design used for the Genie’s blue form was, uh...appealing.

But, I thought that the trailer I’m reviewing here, and which I also showed you all, was loads better than the last one. I’m not good at keeping count for things like this, but, I believe I’ve watched this one like...nearly 10 times!

Will Smith is looking like he’s having all the fun in the world as the Genie. I love the newfound energy that the trailer showed Smith giving the character, as well as the awesome comedic chops.

On the subject of Smith being the Genie for this film...when I first read about him being considered, I didn’t know what to think. However, when I thought about it more, it suddenly occurred to me that he’d be perfect for the part in this film.

He’s definitely no Robin Williams (the latter whom starred in the animated Aladdin film, and which I’m hoping to review very soon), but, I can definitely tell that he’s going to be fun to be around.

The music rendition done by returning composer Alan Menken is definitely sounding really fun too. I couldn’t help but find the beat given to the new version of “Friend Like Me” to be so catchy, and the film’s version of “A Whole New World” gave such a good emotional resonance.

Now, if I have to classify one problem I couldn’t help but stumble upon, it was this:

Like many out there, I didn’t think the casting of Marwan Kenzari as Jafar felt right. Nothing against him, really, I’ve actually never even heard of him until now. But, looking at it closely and comparing it to the Jafar of the animated film, I felt that he was too young to play the part, and I started to think that the character should have been played by someone who was older and deeper-voiced compared to Kenzari. He also didn’t give off much of an intimidating presence. But, I’m hoping to definitely be proven wrong when I see the film someday.

So, all in all, I can tell that it definitely won’t outcompete the original animated film, but, it’s definitely got my interest, and it looks really fun. Who knows? It can very much be it’s own thing too.

What do you all think?

I didn't think Will Smith being the Genie wasn't too bad a move from the beginning.

The other half where they sing "A Whole New World" onward was the most awesome thing I've seen in a live-action Disney trailer EVER. 😍😍😍

I'm looking forward to Marwan Kenzari's performance because it seems to me like the intent might be to try to pay more homage to the Original Story than the old animated movie did.

But we'll see what happens.

Personally I'm paitently waiting for the hammer to drop. I'm literally counting days before someone gets loud enough about their problems with Islam and accuses the movie of being Pro-Islam propaganda just because the setting is an old fictional Islamic Kingdom.

Well, I think I won't say anything concrete about Will Smith yet. I'll wait until the movie, but I'm hoping for the best.

Certainly has its merits, in design and character!

Regarding Jafar, I have two words: BEN KINGSLEY!

I am a simple man with simple thoughts and desires.

Isn’t Kingsley a white-English actor, though?

According to IMdB, he's half-Indian. Besides, he played the bad guy in Prince of Persia, so I think he can pass for an Arab.
