Disney has dropped the official trailer for the upcoming live-action of ‘Aladdin’, the 1992 animated classic and we couldn’t be more excited!
2019’s ’Aladdin’, directed by British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, features Will Smith as the Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine. Joining the trio on-screen, will be Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahban as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad as Jasmine’s friend and handmaiden Dalia, and Billy Magnussen in the new role of Prince Anders.
The mesmerizing and vibrant footage also teases viewers with big musical numbers with songs from the original film such as “Friend Like Me” and our all-time favorite “A Whole New World”. There are also new additions as well, such as the ultimate carpet chase between Aladdin and a gargantuan Iago at the end in the great battle against Jafar.
The film will open in theaters everywhere starting on May 24. Let us know if you’ll be watching and what you think of the new trailer!
