A RE­PEAT MAGIC CAR­PET RIDE STILL SOARS HIGH, US, 128 MIN

Feel free to breathe a sigh of re­lief, for Dis­ney’s live-ac­tion re­boot of a clas­sic car­toon does not tin­ker too much with the 1992 an­i­mated mu­si­cal. Appealing new­com­ers Mena Mas­soud (Aladdin) and Naomi Scott (Jas­mine) don’t take too long to find their stride af­ter un­con­vinc­ing starts. Sur­pris­ingly, the same goes for Will Smith as Genie, who will grow on you af­ter a while.
