Have you discovered “A Whole New World” yet?
If you still haven’t seen the live-action adaption of Disney’s “Aladdin,” then you are certainly missing out. There is a lot to celebrate (other than the fabulous entrance of Prince Ali) and that’s because the movie has now become Will Smith’s highest-grossing film.
Many were hesitant of Smith’s performance long before the movie came out because Robin Williams – the original Genie from the 1992 classic cartoon – made the character famous. Many fans of the animated film claimed that Smith would not be able to replace Robin Williams.
While Smith may not have been able to replace Robbins, he was still able to bring his own flair to the Genie, and it clearly shows. To celebrate the milestone, Smith posted a sweet video on Instagram thanking fans for making “Aladdin” the biggest movie of his career.
“To be in this game as long as I’ve been in this game, and to have my biggest movie at this point in my career, I just want to say thank you,” Smith said. In the video caption, Smith continued “Aladdin just became the biggest movie of my career! I’m honored and I’m Speechless. (You see what I did there? Gotta pay attention) The only thing I can say is… Thank You.”
But taking things a step further and really showing fans how grateful he is, Smith went on to thank fans in more than a dozen languages, including Korean, French, Russian and Japanese.
