In this episode, Andy Farnsworth, Ryan Meeks and KellieAnn Halvorsen are talking Disney's live-action "Aladdin" remake (WITH SPOILERS).

Disney hopes this new movie from director Guy Ritchie puts people in the seats like "Beauty and the Beast" and "Cinderella" did, but fans seem more apprehensive than usual about this remake of the 1992 animated classic.

Andy, Ryan and KellieAnn didn't find this new "Aladdin" to be quite to the level of the best Disney remakes, but really liked some of it--Naomi Scott as Jasmine, in particular.  Listen to find out what else they liked, their quibbles with some of the movie's choices, and ideas for a possible sequel!
