Aladdin Classic & Aladdin Live Action
I received a copy of both Aladdin Blu-Rays in exchange for this post. However, all opinions are 100% my own as always.

Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s I watched lots and lots and lots of Disney movies. While we have our favorites from growing up one of the siblings loved Aladdin so it was on more often than not. Robin Williams as the Genie has a very near and dear place in my heart but so does Will Smith, Ironic right? When Disney first announced they were remaking Aladdin, I was a little more than apprehensive to say the least.
But since the classic and the “new” version has arrived at my door I may or may not have been watching them and comparing them. But we all know that I don’t spoil movies for you if I can at all help it. So, it might have started a little differently, but there was lots of similarities and a new way of telling the same old storyline. Did I love it? Not exactly but I didn’t dislike it either and there were lots of fun surprises that kept me on my toes and it made me fall into love with the “new” version of the old character all the same.
