Trailer: Aladdin (2019) Take 2!

We have yet more from Aladdin and this one does seem a lot better than the teaser trailer and then the first trailer we had first showing Will Smith in blue as the genie. This makes it lot a lot more epic with the different musical numbers and routines. I have been very dubious about the live action remake for this film due to my love for the animated version. This trailer however has made me a little more positive.

Trailer: Aladdin (2019)

We had a teaser trailer for the live action remake of Aladdin back in October and last night during the Grammy awards they dropped the first actual trailer, we get the first glimpse of Will Smith as the blue genie and it seems to have broken the internet a little bit. Aladdin is my favourite and I just don’t see how or why this film is needed?

He seriously looks terrible. Check it out for yourself …

Aladdin (2019) Teaser Trailer

This really is the ultimate teasing trailer . . .

Disney have really thrown out a tease with the trailer for the live action version of Aladdin. It is pretty much my favourite Disney film and I am a little bit unsure about the live action version. This teaser just shows us something we already know, and we get a small peek at Aladdin at the end . . .

7 Amazing Disney Villain Songs

Something always draws you towards the villains in Disney films. Maybe it just has to be that they get a truly great song! I am going to share with you my favourites here! Let’s face it Disney do very good bad guys and I certainly think that it has something to do with the actors they have doing the voices of those characters as it certainly is all in the voice, we are lucky enough to get so many of them. Which actually make you doubt if they are all that bad when they get such a great singing moment. Don’t forget to let me know which ones are your favourites!

Where better to start than The Lion King with Scar’s moment! He was just a little bit jealous. Ok very jealous and could not really help being in the shadow of his King brother. Although no excuse what he did really, but we all have to love this song, Jeremy Irons voice!

7 Movie Villains Who Had No Business Losing

Cinema would be nothing without its villains. Not every story has one, of course, but from ordinary antagonists to world-conquering super villains, there’s usually someone to root against, and it’s often these characters that entertain us most, or most effectively drive a story forward. And almost always, these characters lose.

Generally, this is what moviegoers want. We want to see compelling antagonists who are ultimately defeated by more relatable or morally admirable heroes. But that doesn’t change the fact that there have been a lot of movie villains over the years who seemed to have about 99.9 percent chances of triumphing in their respective conflicts. Here are seven such villains who never had any business losing, but graciously did so for narrative convenience.

(Naturally, some spoilers follow for the relevant films)

I very luckily came across this Blogathon as it started this weekend and just really felt the need to write a post about one of my all time favourite cartoons. The first one that came into my head (I have probably mentioned it a lot of the blog) was Aladdin. It was the first film I went to see at the cinema as a small child and I still enjoy it to this day. I think it has a little bit of everything and is a lot better than some of the more recently released animated films.

Blogathon: 7 Childhood Films – Animation

When putting together my 7 Childhood Films for the Childhood Films Blogathon I am hosting I realised that I had not actually put any animated films in! Now that is such a silly thing to do really considering animation is a big part of what you will watch as a child. So I decided to submit another post and have 7 animated films from my childhood in this blog post!

I was never massively into the Disney Princess thing so that will just clarify why not many of them are included in this list. I was going to cheat and include Space Jam with it being part animated but resisted that temptation!
