Hoping to recreate the magic of its 1992 animated classic, Disney has released the first full trailer for its live-action Aladdin remake. The film’s first full preview is composed mainly of scenes recreating some of the animated feature’s most iconic moments. This new trailer also affords an extended more thorough, look than previously available at Will Smith’s controversial Genie. The two-minute-long glimpse into ‘A Whole New World’ also provides us with more of Aladdin (Mena Massoud), Jasmine (Naomi Scott), Jafar (Marwan Kenzari), Abu and Magic Carpet.
The trailer is visually stunning of course; one expects no less from Disney.
Directed by Guy Ritchie, Aladdin stars Mena Massoud, with Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Will Smith as the Genie, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahban as The Sultan, Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders and Numan Acar as Hakim. The film arrives in theaters May 24.
