The full Aladdin trailer dropped and if you remember, I was not impressed with the Genie. I needed more. Well, Disney pulled it out again because this trailer even brought tears to my eyes. Aladdin meant so much to me growing up. Not only did I have the VHS which I totally wore out, I had a soundtrack cassette that my friends and I would perform for our parents. Regularly. This trailer gave me chills guys. I am hyped again. Jafar still seems too young and it annoys me, but I am willing to look past it. Bring on May!
Yup, I totally cried. Can you blame me? That music hit and it was all over for me. Not only did I belt out the words, I teared up. Right now I am HYPED for the live action version, and cannot wait to see more and more!
