Thoughts:

I was lazy and watched Aladdin on Disney+ instead of pulling out my Bluray copy. It may look better on the disc, but I thought it looked pretty good. Since I watched it that way, I saw that Disney now has a warning at the beginning of the movie about how culturally insensitive the depictions are. I thought that was nice.

It’s hard watching something with Robin Williams in it. His voice is so recognizable, and this movie was one of the few VHSs that I had growing up, so I watched it a lot. I think Williams was the first actor I grew up with that has passed away. It hurts a little to hear him.

The story is much more sexualized than I remember. Jasmine’s clothes were always revealing for a kid’s movie, but I missed other things. What is it with Disney in big-busted triplets?

Honestly, I didn’t think the movie was as amazing as I remember it, but it’s still good. My kids seemed to like it, and the music is still amazing.
