This Honest Trailer for Aladdin Raises Some Great Points

1 minute read

The cultural critics over at Screen Junkies are back with another “honest trailer” and this one tackles a beloved Disney classic: Aladdin.

“From the studio who’s not exactly known for tastefully handling other cultures’ stories,” the voiceover begins, “comes the 25th anniversary of a Middle Eastern fairy tale that would never be made today.”

The trailer outlines the story of “a hunky thief with no home, no parents, and no nipples” who teaches kids that stealing is okay and says whatever it takes to get into Princess Jasmine’s “M.C. Hammer pants.”

As a bonus, this trailer features new versions of all the Aladdin songs. Warning: this will definitely ruin “A Whole New World” for you.
