We are a week and a half away from Aladdin being released in theaters everywhere and literally every clip that I have seen has no disappointed. I keep telling y’all I had faith in Aladdin since the first trailer. And I’ve held on to that optimism since. With every trailer that followed that, the visuals have continued to stun and the characters I’ve loved since I was a little girl have literally come to life. There have been some doubts about Will Smith playing the role of genie, but I’m excited to see him take on this role. If anyone can do justice to the role played by the late Robin Williams, it’s him.
It’s here guys! It’s finally time! On Monday tickets for Disney’s Aladdin went on sale everywhere tickets are sold. Monday night on our variety show The Brown Side of Disney we discussed Aladdin for quite some time. This movie is not without controversy but I feel like it’s not getting the hype it deserves! I’m definitely going to be getting my tickets in advance, even if I’m sitting up in there alone! Are y’all excited about Aladdin?
When the second trailer for Aladdin dropped and we got the first “live” look at the genie, boy was the internet talking!! Everyone had something to say, as usual. In Entertainment Weekly’s first look, everyone was mad that Will Smith wasn’t blue. Then when we finally got to see him blue, the internet was BIG MAD. People complained that the CGI was horrible, that he looked creepy, and that he wouldn’t live up to Robin Williams’ genie.
Today friends, the official trailer dropped for Disney’s Aladdin.
And I’m so excited that I actually said I was going to throw up during my reaction video. Y’all know how I feel about Aladdin, Ive been talking about this movie ever since they announced the live-action version was coming out. To get an ever closer look at it?!?! It was EVERYTHING I needed tonight.
Check out my reaction video:
I’m a millennial. I have all the big wanderlust dreams and I’d love nothing more than to drop everything at a moments notice and take flight. I can’t wait to give my children the travel experiences I never had and show them the world in a whole new way. That being said, we thankfully have some travel plans this year.
In a little over a week I’ll be headed to the Courage to Earn More Retreat in the Bay Area! I’m hype about it for so many reasons, and I’ll be sharing my thoughts real soon. We also made some plans for both of the boys birthdays later this year. RJ is turning 5 and I can’t believe it! That’s a whole separate emotional, time is going by so fast icantbelievethisismylife post. Of all the plans I hope to see this year I’m personally biased. I definitely have somewhere I’m looking forward to visiting the most.
On Wednesday we all got the first teaser of the Aladdin poster, debuted by Will Smith. All it took was that one poster for the innanets to completely lose it (including me). Tonight, Disney blessed us with this gem:
And now I’m even more hype! Did y’all see Iago flying around? Peep the cave of wonder?! The diamond in the rough!!! I cannot wait for this movie!! Aladdin has been my favorite Disney movie since I was little girl and I’m HYPE for the live action version. May could not get here fast enough. So what do we know about Aladdin so far?
Who: Mena Massoud will be starring in the role of Aladdin. Other confirmed cast members include Naomi Scott as Jasmine, Will Smith as the genie and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar.
When: Release is scheduled for May 24 2019
Like I’ve already said 50/11 times in this post I’m excited for this and I can’t wait until we get more details.
