Disney's new live-action remake, 'Aladdin' just released. Featuring Will Smith as Genie, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; will this remake be able to match the magic of the original one?
Here is what the netizens have to say about this trip down the childhood memory lane-
The Aladdin remake had effects from out of this world, the soundtrack was incredible, Naomi Scott’s Speechless gave me goosebumps. Definitely a masterpiece of a remake, the best remake Disney has done thus far. Let’s see if The Lion King can top this. #aladdin— Bader (@26bloushi04) May 24, 2019

#Aladdin !!!!!!!! 10/10 I can’t say enough good things about it. Literally my favorite childhood movie recreated thus far!!! 🕌😄— brea varnell (@breauhhh_8) May 24, 2019
Saw #Aladdin again and it’s very, very clear the best part of that movie is Will Smith as the Genie. Not even close. The choreography and music for his two big songs were awesome. Good to see after all the doubt from the first trailer. pic.twitter.com/QCO5guBFJJ— Jeff D King of the Monsters (@JeffDLowe) May 24, 2019
I’ve never smiled as much in a movie in my life until I watched #Aladdin. It met my expectations and passed them. This is the best Disney live action they’ve done hands down. 👏— Alan (@GustheBuz23) May 24, 2019

• Will Smith makes a FANTASTIC Genie.
• Naomi Scott is our new supreme.
• Mena Massoud’s million dollar smile can power all of Agrabah.
I had concerns about #Aladdin walking into the theater tonight. It was one of the films that defined my youth & made me fall in love with the magic of music & storytelling combined. After seeing it, I’m happy to say my doubts were unfounded, as every moment was indeed red-letter. pic.twitter.com/tgTIe9t0CZ— Disney_Shaun (@Disney_Shaun) May 24, 2019
#Aladdin : 4/5. One of the better Disney remakes I've seen. The biggest talked about aspect of the film is Will Smith as the genie. The trailers don't do him justice. He takes the role and makes it his own by not trying to copy Robin Williams. pic.twitter.com/cCaHtz2Gab— Chad's Movie Reviews (@Chads_Reviews) May 24, 2019
I saw Aladdin today and honestly I LOVED IT. Will Smith played the genie VERY well and don’t think Robin would be disappointed. Yes it’s different than the original but they add uniqueness and modernization to it in a colorful, story telling way! #DisneyAladdin pic.twitter.com/rm9V6qlMTM— 🦒Briana Mason🦒 (@brianaa_13) May 24, 2019
Man #Aladdin was absolute trash. Barely stuck to the original story, had a few home runs here and there but overall disappointment. Only thing going for it is the nostalgia factor and family friendly appeal. Just a money grab that drug the original’s name though the mud.
