‘Aladdin’: Watch Composer Alan Menken Perform a Medley of Disney Songs, and Learn How Will Smith Crafted His Version of Genie

Despite going into Guy Ritchie‘s Aladdin with almost no hope whatsoever, I ended up being won over by the movie. Fans of the original Aladdin won’t be disappointed, and while I’ve grown to be somewhat cynical about Disney remaking its animated classics, this one justifies its existence by making some interesting updates while staying true to its characters. This past weekend, I attended the Aladdin press conference in Beverly Hills, and amid all of the expected answers about singing and dancing...

25 Years Ago, ‘The Return of Jafar’ Kicked Off the DTV Era of Disney Animation

The summer of 1994 was a big deal for the Walt Disney Company. Primarily, it marked the release of the studio’s biggest animated film to date, The Lion King , a film with a rocky production history that has become one of their most incredible success stories. But it was a summer of upheaval and major change, both among its top executives and within the studio’s storied legacy of animation. The Lion King celebrates its quarter-century anniversary in mid-June, but another 25th anniver...

‘Aladdin’ Special Look Takes You To ‘The World of Aladdin’

The reaction to Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin has been a bit…muted. The footage revealed is a bit lacking, and fans of the original don’t quite know what to make of Will Smith‘s take on the Genie. We won’t know how the film actually is until it’s release, but let’s just say the enthusiasm for this live-action Disney remake is a lot lower than previous releases. But maybe this Aladdin special look will do the trick. The video below goes behind-the-scenes of the Guy Ritchie-directed adapt...

Where to eat in Kensington Market

It’s hard to keep track of the number of different languages and dialects you’ll hear in Kensington Market in downtown Toronto on any given day. Nearly half of the population is foreign-born, and some 200 languages are spoken in the city. The market area has historically been a gathering point for immigrant communities, and the diverse restaurant landscape reflects that. I see this firsthand as I wait to try a momo (a type of Tibetan dumpling) for the first time at the Tibet Café and Bar, one...

‘Aladdin’ Trailer: You Ain’t Never Had a Disney Live-Action Adaptation Like This

Disney has been slowly rolling out the teasers for Aladdin, all of which have been met with, let’s say, mixed reactions. The first teaser trailer in October featured plenty of the original 1992 animated film’s iconography, but barely featured the titular character played by Mena Massoud, much less the film’s highest-billed actor, Will Smith. But then a special TV spot revealed our first look at Smith as the giant, blue genie, and that wasn’t quite well-received either. Now, Disney has finally r...
