Made ya look.
Oh Aladdin. Let me tell you guys how much I love this movie.
I’m actually pretty sure Aladdin might have been my first animated crush. Seriously. I thought he was so cute when I was younger, and even now…well he’s pretty darn attractive. But on to the movie. ;)
I feel like I’m going to get repetitive throughout this whole Disney Renaissance thing because they are all the movies I grew up with, all of my favorites (besides a few) and I just will always love them no matter what because they remind me of my childhood. So sorry in advance for the number of times you hear ‘I just really love this movie’ or some variation.
But it’s true. I really do love this movie. Everything about it. I love the characters, everyone is so lovable (except Jafar…and well I know Iago is supposed to be comic relief, but I just…don’t like him or think he’s funny. I probably did as a little kid, but now I just think he’s really annoying.), and the story is so great and relatable. The music is seriously so freaking good. I love the colors, I love the style of the movie…I mean other than Iago, I can’t really think of something I don’t like about it.
I will say this, however, this movie is really really long. Most of the Disney movies tend to be right around 70 or 80 minutes, this one is 90ish. And while they’s only a difference of 10 minutes, I felt it. I guess maybe that’s one thing I would change, perhaps cut a few things so that the story doesn’t feel like it drags so much. Now this could be because through this blog, I watch the movie spread out over an entire week, so that might make it feel like it’s dragging a bit, but I feel the same way when I watch it normally, so yeah. Maybe it’s not just me?
Onto this week’s question. I mentioned up there that I think Aladdin was my first Disney crush, and now it’s Naveen from Princess and the Frog, and the Mad Hatter (the parks version, not so much the animated version…but he still counts. ;)). I wanna hear your guys’ Disney crushes. Who did you like as a kid? Who do you like now?
