Disney Grants Your Wish With Aladdin's First Full Trailer

Aladdin Mena Massoud Naomi Scott Disney Guy Ritchie Aladdin first full trailer gives us even more Genie
Charles Bowen | 12 March, 2019, 17:56

Massoud runs through the plot - from the streets of Agrabah to the Cave of Wonders to the royal palace - while fans get a snippet of "A Whole New World" along with all the excess a live-action Disney film promises. It may seem like a small nitpick, but it points to what could be fundamental flaws in Disney's conception of this new Aladdin.

We've already seen peeks at Disney's new adaptation of its animated classic, but this is the most compelling reason yet to get excited about the Guy Ritchie-directed film. Mena Massoud stars as the street-rat-with-a-heart-of-gold Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as the lovely and determined Princess Jasmine.

Weeks after we were introduced to Will Smith's blue genie, Smith took to Instagram to announce that the first trailer of Aladdin is here.

Speaking about the role, and the shadow of Williams - who died in 2014 - looming over him, Smith told Entertainment Tonight: "I was terrified doing the Genie after Robin Williams". This is one among the many live-action remakes Disney had planned for the future.

Watch above, then let us know what you think of the latest trailer. "Aladdin" opens in theaters on May 24th. Are you fan of the improvements on Will Smith's Genie look? "I don't think people will be anxious about Genie after this!" one wrote. "Will Smith looks significantly better in this trailer!"

It's safe to say that the dubious public reaction to the first Aladdin trailer isn't exactly what Disney wished for. Will Smith plays Genie, Naomi Scott plays Princess Jasmine and Mena Massoud plays Aladdin.
