Disney’s live action remakes have mostly been pretty good, defying my expectations. (Let’s just skip right over The Lion King.) This is one of the best. They’ve amped up the role of Jasmine, so she is a lot less passive. The production is eye-popping, and the music is great. Will Smith will never be able to replace Robin Williams as the Genie, but he does a pretty good job of it. Worth seeing.
