'Aladdin' honest trailer reminds us why it's really Genie's movie

Posted on

<Aladdin and Jasmine may be the center of the classic Disney movie Aladdin, but as the honest trailer for the film points out, it’s really Genie’s movie.

Screen Junkies’ latest breakdown focuses on the 1992 Disney hit, and reminds viewers that Robin Williams’ iconic performance in the film has its pluses (impressions of celebrities who are hundreds of years away from existing) and minuses (“nonstop improvised riffing that made him everybody’s favorite part of the film, and every Disney animator’s worst nightmare”).

There’s also the matter of the film’s soundtrack: While complete with some of Disney’s more memorable hits, it may secretly have some lessons embedded within that parents might not want their children to learn.

Check out the full honest trailer above, but be warned: the alternate version of “A Whole New World” may ruin some of your memories of the song.
