A new trailer was released this week that show a little more of the interaction (and music) between Aladdin and Jasmine and it gave me all the chills. Watch it here:
There were a lot of complaints about the CGI after the last trailer was released and honestly? I didn't notice. I thought it was magical and unless something is really amiss or glitchy, the technical aspects just aren't what my mind and heart are drawn to. Either way, this movie is going to be amazing and I can't wait to see the interaction between Aladdin and Jasmine.
Disney movies are magic and they have the ability to connect so many people through their on-screen magic. Read more about why Aladdin is special to me and why I consider it one of “my” movies here.

And, I have to say, I was a little bit skeptical about Will Smith pulling off the role of Genie…although I think Will Smith is awesome, he has some seriously large genie shoes to fill. I think it's going to be OK.
