Walt Disney Studios has finally given us the first full trailer for their live-action adaptation for Aladdin.
The trailer is packed with nods to Disney’s animated classic. Including brand new looks at the Genie in action, sneak peeks at some musical numbers which give us a Bollywood vibe, and rightly so, we also get great new looks at Abu, the Magic Carpet, Rajah, and Jafar. Check out the trailer below, and let us know your thoughts.
A little over a month ago, Disney faced some backlash regarding the VFX in the first look of Will Smith’s blue Genie form in a sneak peek. The studio must have taken note because the trailers VFX look much better here.
A new poster for the film has also been released.
“Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s animated classic “Aladdin.”
Aladdin stars Mena Massoud (Jack Ryan) as Aladdin, Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) as Jasmine, Will Smith (Bad Boys) as the iconic Genie, Marwan Kenzari (The Mummy 2017) as the villainous Jafar, Numan Acar (Prison Break) as Head of the guards Akim, Navid Negahban (Homeland) as The Sultan, Nasim Pedrad (SNL) as Dalia and Billy Magnussen (Into The Woods) as Prince Anders.
Aladdin will hit theaters on May 24, 2019.
