Yikes! Will Smith’s ‘Prince Ali’ number lacks energy!
There is really no point comparing the upcoming live-action Aladdin to the original. We already know it won’t ever be the same…BUT the musical numbers in the new film should at least bring the same energy, and based on the latest clip released by Disney which shows Will Smith’s version of “Prince Ali,” it appears we may just hit the ‘snooze’ button on the entire movie.
Will Smith performs one of the most memorable songs from the original, “Prince Ali” in which he makes Aladdin a prince and “Al” shows off his wealth and fame to impress the citizens of the city, the Sultan, and most importantly, Princess Jasmine. (via)
