Disney has revealed a new teaser trailer for director Guy Ritchie’s live-action Aladdin, and in it, you will have the first look at Will Smith as the legendary blue genie. It’ll be exciting to see how fans respond to the design of the character and how Smith brings him to life in his very own way. They didn’t want to imitate Robin Williams, so this is a very modified version of the character that, as you’ll see, is 100% Will Smith’s character and with his own unique style.
The trailer focuses on Aladdin being brought to the Cave of Wonders to retrieve the lamp for Jafar. It features some well-known music and few other smart shots teasing characters of the movie. Here’s the synopsis:
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 Aladdin.
Aladdin also stars Mena Massoud as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards.
Aladdin will be released on May 24th, 2019.
