NaBloPoMo 2013: Day 29 – Twisted

TwistedWell, Team Starkid have done it again! They have released their latest musical on YouTube. You all know how much I LOVED their previous musical, Holy Musical B@man, so I was super excited to dive into this latest creation. Twisted: The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier is basically a Disney version of Wicked, centering on Jafar from Aladdin. Sure he may seem evil in his previous portrayals, but really, he was just misunderstood and misrepresented!

This new show includes all your favourite Disney Aladdin characters, except with slightly different personalities. The show is overacted, as per usual with TSK, however, that makes the silly situations and one-liners so much better. There are so many running Disney gags that had me laughing my head off. The music is quite catchy and helps the show flow easily from one scene to the next. There is no down time and the show is hopping non-stop. There is a lot of crude language in this show and it is definitely not suitable for children. I was surprised with the portrayal of Aladdin as it was quite different than I had expected.

I loved this show, however not as much as HMB. I will definitely watch it again, as I will watch anything StarKid comes out with. I don’t know where they get their ideas. So much creativity erupts from this group of people. It’s a wonder that they still give so much for free online. Thank goodness for me or else I would never know anything about them. They make my life very happy.

So please, take a couple hours away from your own life and dive into the world of Twisted!!
