A Whole New World

The original animated classic Aladdin came out in 1992, when I was 12 years old.  Did I become obsessed?  Yes.  Did I drive everyone crazy singing the songs?  No.  But only because EVERYBODY was doing the same thing.  (In fact, my school's choral program performed a very popular medley of tunes from the movie.  There was a pretty stiff competition over who would get to sing the two solos in A Whole New World.)  There were also tons of folks trying to out-quote each other using the genie's lines.  Robin Williams -- what a genius!

Now, the live-action remake Aladdin is hitting the big screen.  I'm excited . . . and also terrified.  When you love something so much, especially if it played a huge role in your youth, it's hard to see it changed in any way.  You may see it before I do.  Summer Reading, as I'm sure you can imagine, is a busy time for me.  Let me know what you think.  That way I'll be One Jump Ahead.
