Stars & Stripes New Braunfels is gettin’ genie wit it as Walt Disney Studios conjures up the live-action remake of a beloved animated classic! Directed by Guy Ritchie, it’s Aladdin!
The film follows Mena Massoud as the titular diamond in the rough who attempts to win the heart of the beautiful Princess Jasmine, played by Naomi Scott. Of course, you can’t have an Aladdin remake without a big blue genie, and who better to take on the iconic role than film icon himself, Will Smith!
When faced with the task of filling the shoes of Robin Williams, who voiced the Genie in the animated original, Smith admits that he was, of course, intimidated. “At the end of the day,” Smith stated, “It was the music where I saw that I could honor the nostalgia, and I could pay homage to Robin, but then also be able to add my new flavor.” Speaking of the music, Aladdin features brand new renditions of the original’s classic songs, as well as a few new pieces composed by Disney Legend Alan Menken.
