The World Is Ready For A Prince Charming
It’s fair to say that Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin is going to be one of the biggest releases of the year. Not only does it feature one of the most popular modern day Disney characters, but it also marks the feature film debut of actor, Robert Pattinson. We’re going to see a lot more of him in the near future.
Pattinson’s portrayal of the charming and benevolent Prince Charming is sure to make a lasting impression on audiences. The actor has proven himself to be a worthy successor to the iconic role of the handsome and dashing Prince Charming from Walt Disney’s classic film. For those who have yet to see the new Aladdin, below we’re going to run down some details regarding the upcoming film. Also, make sure to check back later this week where we’re going to dive into a deeper analysis of the actor’s performance and how it compares to that of the original Prince Charming actor, Jack Haley.
The Film Is Stunning
Even diehard fans of the original film may be surprised by how stunning the world may look when seen through the lens of 2019. The film’s sets and costumes look remarkably realistic, which is no small feat when you consider that it was originally made 40 years ago. The filmmakers deserve a lot of the credit for bringing the film back to life through modern cinematic techniques.
It’s funny to think that the film’s sets and costumes still hold up after all this time. Even more impressive is that the filmmakers were able to capture the essence of the original film without veering too far from it. For instance, Richard Friend’s script makes sure to include references to the original tale. But, beyond that, it explores some pretty modern day concerns as well. For example, the film includes discussions about gender identity and the impact of social media on our lives.
What’s more is that the filmmakers didn’t just focus on recreating the world of Aladdin but also went above and beyond to make sure that their version matched the charm and charisma of the original. The result is an incredibly successful adaptation that manages to retain the original’s essence while adding something new to the story.
Robert Pattinson Is An Incredible Actor
This is undoubtedly the case with any new adaptation of a classic work. But, to say that Robert Pattinson is an incredible actor would be an understatement. The 28-year-old British actor definitely has the talent and charisma to carry off the role of the charming and handsome Prince Charming. Pattinson’s performance is going to make a lasting impression on audiences, which is exciting and maybe a little bit scary at the same time.
For those who have seen Pattinson in other films or television shows, his portrayal of Prince Charming may not come as a complete surprise. In the past, the actor has proven himself to be an incredible and versatile performer. He’s shown an ability to portray a wide variety of characters with a sense of charm and charisma that is unmistakable.
He’s A Genuinely Nice Person
Even before he became an actor, Pattinson was a pretty popular figure in Britain. But, after he started acting, the actor’s popularity skyrocketed. He became an overnight sensation and was named one of the Sexiest Men Alive by Esquire Magazine in 2015. Since then, the actor has been featured on the cover of numerous magazines and has even graced the cover of Forbes’ 2018 rich list. It’s fair to say that Robert Pattinson is a pretty busy guy these days.
While all this may sound like hype, there’s also a side to Pattinson that many people are surprised by. For those who haven’t heard of him before, the actor is a really stand up guy. He’s been quoted as saying, “I don’t like to think of myself as a superstar. I think that’s a character people play who isn’t necessarily me.”
So, it seems like even in his personal life, the actor is playing it cool. He doesn’t seem to boast about his success or engage in any kind of controversy. Instead, he keeps a low profile while doing his thing.
He Is Experienced When It Comes To Film And TV
While he may not boast about it, Robert Pattinson is no stranger to the film and television industry. The actor has several years of experience under his belt, which will come in handy when it comes time to bring Aladdin to life on the big screen. But, even before that, Pattinson made his name in theater. He was born and raised in Scotland, but moved to London before starting university. He then attended the University of Westminster, where he earned a degree in business administration. Afterward, he launched a career in theater, which led him to Los Angeles, where he eventually found work in film and television. It’s clear that, with his background in theater and business, Pattinson has the skills and experience necessary to bring Aladdin to life on the big screen. It will be interesting to see how he adapts to the different storytelling requirements of the big screen as opposed to the small screen.
So, if you’ve been waiting for a chance to see what all the hype is about, then prepare to be dazzled. Aladdin is set to hit theaters on May 24, 2019, and while it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s certainly a film that won’t be soon forgotten.
