Live-action remake could be more intense than original.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Aladdin is a live-action remake of the magical animated Disney classic. Lovable scoundrel Aladdin (Mena Massoud) is trying to get by on the streets of Agrabah. Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott), the sultan's daughter, longs to see the world beyond the castle walls. Their lives are turned upside down when Aladdin accidentally releases a powerful (and hilarious) genie (Will Smith) from a magic lamp. This updated version likely won't stray far from the original (although it's hard to imagine it without Robin Williams' gregarious genie). But the live-action elements could make the remake scarier or more intense than the animated original. Expect some fantasy violence and romance, too.
