Media and Memorie: Aladdin

April 9, 2014 by hopev227   




Growing up I WAS OBSESSED with the Disney movie/musical “Aladdin”! It was just amazing to watch a low life thief transform into this wealthy prince and steal a princess’s heart. It would captivate me for hours and hours. I would just sit in front of the TV and sing in my little toddler voice along to every single song! And then I would force my poor Mom to rewind it so I could watch it over and over again! Aladdin was a huge inspiration to me because he taught me that no matter what you have been classified to be you can break society’s mold and be whatever you want.
Jasmine also taught me what real beauty is. Jasmine is gorgeous but she also had a heart and that is real beauty. She was loving, caring, and compassionate. She had this essence about her personality that was bold, adventurous, and rebellious. She taught me that no matter who you are or what you look like, you’re beautiful.
Also the Genie. Oh the Genie. He was HILARIOUS and always put a smile on my face. I could rematch all of his scenes. But he taught me that even the people that seem the happiest can be depressed. But you can get over that depression. That you can’t let your problems get in the way of your happiness because everyone deserves to be happy.
Aladdin was the best growing up. I remember it and now I really want to go watch it. It’s the little things when we were little that mean the most to us now. I know that this movie means the world to me. And I can still hear that lyric that has stuck with me all of these years, “a whole new world!”

    I remember taking my two children to see Aladdin in the theater when it came out. Ann Richards, who was our Texas governor at the time, was also there with her grandchildren. I think all of us adults enjoyed Robin Williams’ performance as the genie even more than the kids did!
