One hell of a “Twisted” musical

Starkid strikes again!

This musical – which does to Jafar as Wicked did to the Wicked Witch of the West – is a fantastic satire of Aladdin, the common tropes of Disney films in general, and the behind-the-scenes shenanigans from the collapse of Disney’s second Golden Age to its acquisition of Pixar.

Not to mention, a touching, hilarious, clever, thought-provoking spectacle in its own right.

I especially love what they did to Aladdin in this version. Great interpretation. Oh and also keep on the lookout for parodies of Disney and Pixar showtunes. I even caught a copyright-evading version of a deleted Aladdin number “Proud Of Your Boy”!

What are your thoughts?
