Disney Revs Up Nostalgia With First 'Aladdin' Teaser

In a very similar fashion to the first Beauty and the Beast teaser, we hear the original Alan Menken score and hear the voice of the Cave of Wonders, as Disney counts on the profound love of Renaissance-era Disney films among millennials (especially those first four, in The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King) to gin up another billion dollar hit at the box office. I’d rather just watch the old movies, to be honest. There’s something weird and cynical about movies that exist solely to play off nostalgia and love of the old films- again, why not just re-release those old movies?
