Hey guys welcome back to my blog.
If you follow me on my Instagram you would know that I recently went and saw the new Disney live action film Aladdin, that came out May 23rd 2019.
I am a little late to the party, I know, but I still manged to get out there and watch it on the big screen, which is hard for me. So I see this as a win, besides that my Friend and I just happened to only have two other people in the entire cinema.... Double win.
Today's blog is going to be a Review on the movie as told by my Friends Hilarious reactions to some of the changes made to the movie.

Aladdin is a Disney inspired adaption from the original Disney animation movie of the same name.
The story follows a Young 18 year old thief named Aladdin living on the streets in a slums of Agrabah.
Aladdin ends up meeting the woman of his dreams, however she turns out to be the Sultans Daughter, Princess Jasmine and a Princess can only Marry a Prince.
Aladdin's adventure begins when the Evil Jafar Imprisons Aladdin and forces the poor boy into entering "The Cave of Wonders" to retrieve a magical lamp.
And well you know the rest.

In this new live action adaption of Aladdin directed by Guy Richie. The movie has a few changes to the original story that had my friend next to me see red.
Firstly the new movie goes for approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. That's half an hour less than Marvels EndGame. Probably research we should have done prior, considering my friend and I both purchased big drinks..
The original Aladdin only runs for 90 minutes so it is a big difference.
Aladdin played by Mena Massoud and Princess Jasmine played by Naomi Scott are still very much the main characters of this story, although it does seem as though Aladdin is over shadowed by both Will Smiths character Genie and Scott's Princess Jasmine
