Film/TV alladin image

Published on July 9th, 2019 | by voxx



I recently saw the live-action recreation of Disney’s Aladdin at the cinema, an update of the 1992 cartoon version, and I personally found it extremely entertaining. I was never the biggest fan of the animated film, which saw street rat Aladdin using the magic of a genie’s lamp to win over a princess and put a stop to the evil Jafar’s nefarious plans to take over the palace, but I would definitely recommend this year’s showing to people of all ages. Aladdin is a family-friendly feature that provides a trip down memory lane to the days of watching a princess being saved by a magnificent prince, only without falling into that trap. Aladdin instead presents the idea that love is love, no matter what a person’s background, and that money can’t buy happiness.

This recreation sees the beautiful princess Jasmine fall in love with common thief Aladdin, whose social status denies him from being with her, but she doesn’t just sit back idly and put up with it. The film demonstrates female empowerment and the struggles Jasmine faces on her path to becoming a ruler, and through a series of songs and twists the audience is constantly engaged, on the edge of their seats.

Aladdin can grip audiences of any age, and as well as being a fun, fantasy adventure, it also sends out some strong messages of female empowerment and the power of not giving up. It shows that actually, women can be just as powerful as men, can lead just as well, and don’t need a husband to be happy or respected. It’s something I think all females can relate to, and is proof that you can never be too old to appreciate a Disney story.
