If you grew up in the 90’s, you were probably obsessed with Will Smith. If you grew up in the 90’s, you were probably also obsessed with Disney’s animated classic “Aladdin.” This movie was in the golden age of Disney Animation, complete with “Beauty and the Beast” and “Little Mermaid.” With this new trend of recreating animated classics, Disney Studios is tugging at our heart strings! And when you combine the wonder of Will Smith with the artistry of Disney Studios, you get pure magic!
When I first watched this trailer with my children, I got tears in my eyes. I love movies that are huge spectacles, and Disney’s “Aladdin” fits that description perfectly. The music! The sets! The costumes! The special effects! The blue Will Smith! I am just so into all of it. Watch below and let me know your thoughts in the comments.
See what I mean? It’s just a quick trailer, but it makes me so incredibly excited for May 24! When my kids were watching the trailer with me, they kept saying, “We have to go see that Mama!” It was hard to explain that it was still a little while until May 24. I wonder how many times we can watch that trailer on repeat? We should probably have it memorized by the end of May. We will all be ready when this talented cast hits the big screen. I cannot wait to see the full imagination and of the cast and crew behind this incredible production. It’s going to be a spectacle of epic proportions, with the perfect amount of infused 90’s vibes!
