Conclusion

Both of Dinsey’s Aladdin movies were special. The original still has nostalgic feelings for a lot of people. There are also a lot of younger people who appreciate everything that the cartoon was. It was an hour and a half of fun.

The cartoon had some emotional moments, but the live action version may have had more. It also hits closer to home when the characters aren’t animated. As much as I didn’t enjoy the new Aladdin character, he was more realistic. No one is cool all the time. This Aladdin showed a more vulnerable side than the original.

Being completely unbiased, the live action may have been a better movie. Princess Jasmine was a better character, Jafar had an actual background story, and certain words like Aladdin having slaves was removed.

The cartoon was definitely more fun for all ages. It’s a movie anyone can sit down and enjoy. That said, the live action was a better film. Trust and believe, it hurts this writer’s heart to admit that out loud. There will certainly be people who disagree as well. Nonetheless, being completely honest, the live action gets the nod for being a better overall movie.
