Aladdin, Disney’s magical 1992 American animated musical fantasy film is a classic. It has entertained children and adults for decades and Robin Williams‘ performance as Genie is brilliant. It was recently rebooted with a live-action version in 2019 with Will Smith taking on the part of Genie. Well, you can add another amazing take on the story of Aladdin with this short film by filmmaker Devin Graham A.K.A Devinsupertramp.
Disney’s Aladdin films have all had amazing chase scenes but this version by Devinsupertramp kicks it up a notch with parkour. Watching Aladdin played by Calen Chan parkouring through Bukhara and Khiva, historic cities in the country of Uzbekistan is mesmerizing. He ducks, dives, and dodges villains while freerunning with precision and style and the aerial shots are simply beautiful. It’s a joy to watch and please make sure to watch it from beginning to end because you’ll love to see who saves the day in the end!
