The new telling brings little that feels essential, and the missing elements-chiefly, the controlled chaos and unbridled comedy of the late Robin Williams’ vocal performance-have given the film’s candy-colored visual palate a homesick pall.

Marwan Kenzari snarls it up as the villainous Jafar, while Nasim Pedrad is endearing and funny as Jasmine’s handmaiden and best friend Dalia…

There are efforts made, whether through good faith or just market savvy, to update Princess Jasmine into a people’s champion who might prefer ruling to romance. Enough to make you wish the Disney people had gone whole hog and just called it Jasmine.

With “Aladdin,” they’ve done the leveling with just enough style and pizazz that most moviegoers won’t care that it’s a retread, and the leads are good enough to make you hope they’ll go on to something real.

Smith understandably didn’t want to compete with Williams, but as the big, blue, top-knotted Genie, he’s uncharacteristically bland. Even the magic carpet in this movie looks bummed out.

The core of the films may remain the same, but there are enough differences for them to feel like unique experiences. It’s … the changes to the characters, their motivations, and the approach to the narrative which make them more individual.

Guy Ritchie’s remake is mediocre, time filling fodder and that’s about the best compliment I can give it.

Fun-time singalong – four stars of family entertainment.

Aladdin surpasses previous Disney remakes with its unique aesthetic and welcome updates to the original, but some aspects still hold it back from true greatness.
